Upcoming Retreats:

Vajrasattva Retreat
with The Venerable Tenzin Priyadarshi

December 19, 2020  9AM PT/ 12PM ET

(You’re encouraged to register early)

Vajrasattva occupies a central role in the pantheon of Buddhist deities. Commonly associated with purification practices, the sadhana of Vajrasattva should not be simply understood as a “cleansing” practice. Vajrasattva Sadhana has been the main practice of many accomplished masters both male and female. Teachings will be based on 100-Syllable Vajrasattva Mantra. Each three hour retreat in CyberSpace will include prayer and meditation sessions. There will be a brief Q & A opportunity at the end of the session.

Suggested Donation: $45 
Any additional dana or donation for the teacher is encouraged and appreciated.
