TUESDAY

 

Ngondro (preliminary) practices
(more info)
Time: 6-7:30 pm

We will spend 2 weeks on each of the practices; Mandala offering, Vajrasattva recitation, and Refuge combined with prostrations.

These practices are powerful and efficient methods for accumulating merit
and purifying obscurations. Practically, these trainings help develop positive, virtuous qualities, weaken and diminish obscurations and negative qualities,
and render the practitioner receptive to more subtle teachings.

White Tara is always depicted as a peaceful deity. Her special function is to promote long life, both for the practitioner and for others. Ultimately, she is the very nature of the dharmakaya, and her practice is a means for attaining liberation.

Mother Achi was the grandmother of Lord Jigton Sumgon, founder of the Drikung Lineage. To this day she remains a great dharma protector of the Buddha's teachings. Although Achi has a particular commitment to protect the Drikung Kagyu, she is recognized and practiced by all lineages of Tibetan Buddhism.
