Vajrakilaya Practice Days
December 29 - 16:00 - December 31 - 18:00
In Tibetan Buddhist monasteries it is a tradition to practice Vajrakilaya at the end of the year in order to start the new year full of energy and free of any obstacles. For many years, we in Gomde have also ended the year with a Vajrakilaya retreat. Vajrakilaya is an extremely powerful wrathful manifestation of enlightened activity. The practice of this yidam deity shatters outer and inner obstacles, especially those that hinder us in our dharma practice. Vajrakilaya eliminates all negativity and mental obscurations.
During the seminar, Lama Öser will elaborate on the structure of the practice text and on the various points of the ritual. Of course, there will be enough time to clarify individual questions.
Prerequisites for attending this seminar are the refuge vows and an empowerment for Vajrakilaya, or the willingness to receive a Vajrakilaya empowerment in the future. In addition, it would be good to have a basic understanding of Buddhist philosophy and practice, for example through a seminar with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche or a weekend seminar with Lama Thierry. The focus this weekend will be on reciting the practice text, so some prior experience in sadhana practice is very helpful.
If you do not have this prior experience, but feel a strong interest in sadhana practice, please register anyway and let us know in the comments.
