VAJRAYOGINI CLOSE RETREAT. January 2019
The mantra to the Pure Land
- Jan 7th to Feb 3rd
- With Gen Kelsang Dargyay
- IRC Menorca. International Retreat Centre
January is a very special month for practitioners of Highest Yoga Tantra as it is considered the month of the deities Heruka and Vajrayogini. During this month we receive special blessings from these enlightened deities. For this reason January is the best time to do the close retreat of Vajrayogini in which we engage in the practice of ‘Verbal Recitation’ counting 100,000 mantras of this deity.
If you have received a Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment you are able to accomplish this close retreat and create a special connection with Vajrayogini.
The retreat will end with a Fire Puja on February 3rd.
