Retreat on Ta Chag Kyung Sum
(Hayagriva – Three Deity Practice)

June 30th – July 17th

Retreat fee: $601

This will be a closed retreat based on the Hayagriva, Vajrapani and Garuda empowerment recently bestowed by Dungse Shenphen Dawa Norbu, during last Losar at Yeshe Nyingpo, New York. Rinpoche will be giving further instructions for the practice here. This three deity practice is an extremely wrathful form of Hayagriva aimed for degenerate times when both students and teachers find it difficult to establish and maintain proper samaya conduct due to outer and inner influences and distractions. The main purpose of this practice is thus to dissipate and subjugate all negativity––sickness, evil and demonic forces––in so doing heal and clear whatever obstructions exist for oneself and others.

Students are to arrive no later than June 30th so that they have time to prepare for the retreat which begins on July 3rd,  which is Guru Rinpoche Day. If people want to come earlier to help at the center then they are welcome to do so. This retreat is open to all who attended the wang in March 2017.
