Approaching Kalachakra Generation Stage Retreat
Registration closes on Friday, August 28th for this free teaching.
In this practice retreat, you will be introduced to the profound practices of the Kalachakra generation stage through a series of sadhanas written by the Omniscient One, Dolpopa Sherab Gyaltsen. When used together, these sadhanas provide a gradual method for building up the complexity of your visualization and familiarizing yourself with the Kalachakra Mandala in a clear and approachable way. Working from the most essential aspects outward, practitioners will learn how to establish the visualizations, how to recite the various mantras, and also how to perform the different mudras used in the rituals.
Vajra, Bell, Damaru, and Kapala
If you do not own one, they are available at the store.dzokden.org
