Ngondro Instruction & Practice
September 4 - October 16
Time: 6-7:30pm

(more info)

We will spend time on each of the practices: Mandala offering, Vajrasattva recitation, and Refuge combined with prostrations. Sessions will include explanations with time for questions as well as plenty of time to practice. This will be a great way to deepen and support your Ngondro practice!

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.
