About the event

Making mandala offerings is the best method to free us from future poverty and to enable us to obtain future rebirth in a Pure Land.” - Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

Guru yoga as a preliminary practice is done together with making mandala offerings. When making mandala offerings to our Spiritual Guide and holy beings, in reality we are offering them the entire universe. We imagine the entire “ground” of the universe and the whole of space is filled with a countless number of thirty seven special objects, as listed in the long mandala offering prayer. Then, regarding the universe as a Pure Land filled with pure objects, we offer it all to our Spiritual Guide and other holy beings.

In this retreat, on Friday night Gen Norbu will introduce the practice of Guru Yoga and Mandala Offerings Retreat, emphasizing in particular the practice of making mandala offerings. Saturday and Sunday will be unguided practice sessions. This retreat traditionally uses a mandala kit, so if you have a kit you may bring it. Mandala kits will also be available at the center.
