This Hybrid Chakrasamvara Intensive is geared toward the accumulation of the recitation practice in a group setting. If you are just learning the practice, this is a good opportunity to become more familiar with the sadhana. There will be guided practice, instruction of the different sections of the sadhana, and discussion of the wonderful manual by the Vajravairochana Translation Committee. Those who have finished the recitation are also invited to come and deepen their connection with the practice.
This practice intensive will be anchored in an internet-capable shrine room with daily opportunities to practice in the physical representation of Chakrasamvara’s mandala in the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya.
Prerequisite: Chakrasamvara Abhisheka
