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. Although there will be daily opportunities for those who attend in person to practice in the physical representation of Chakrasamvara’s mandala in the Great Stupa of Dharmakaya, for those who attend by Zoom we are unable to bring internet to the Great Stupa and will broadcast from another shrine room. However, we will be able to share recorded imagery from the stupa during the practice.
This is a group retreat and we will rely on the online group to fill roles such as Umdze and Chopon.
You are welcome to come for all or part of this intensive.
