Guru Yoga and Mandala offering retreat

combines two of the four great preliminary guides that we need to practice if we want to gain mahamudra realizations – the quick path to enlightenment.

We all wish for spiritual realizations, but these depend upon creating certain inner conditions such as purifying negativity, accumulating merit, and receiving blessings.

In this retreat we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit and receiving blessings. Making mandala offerings is the gateway to accumulating the collection of merit and attaining an enlightened pure land and Guru yoga is the gateway to receiving powerful blessings of all the Buddhas of the ten directions through our Spiritual Guide.

The retreat involves both prayers and the physical (and mental) practice of making mandalas like those shown in the picture. Instructions on how to construct the mandala offering will be provided.
