2024 New Year’s Magic of Shambhala Retreat: 8 Shambhala Kings & Marichi Empowerments with Teachings at Land of Shambhala

2024 New Year’s Magic of Shambhala Retreat: 8 Shambhala Kings & Marichi Empowerments with Teachings at Land of Shambhala

This event will be available both Online and In-person.

Marichi is the life-long personal protector from Khentrul Rinpoche. She is also considered the proteress of the Sublime Realm of Shambhala. Rinpoche will bestow her Empowerment and transmit a Marichi sadhana written by him which is based on his own visionary experience with this buddhist goddess.

This retreat will include a study of the Marichi Sutra, sadhana practice and the Marichi Puja.

In some lineages of the Vajrayana Buddhism, Marichi is considered to be one manifestation of Tara, appearing for example as the 21st Tara. There are other forms from her found also in other spiritual systems. She is the colour of the sunset, a wondrous, glowing orange. She comes with the sun and, as the sun, her blessings pervade everywhere.

This sadhana is also extremely helpful for those working with the Drolmi Kazug Puja. Beyond the empowerment and oral transmission of the Marichi Sadhana, Rinpoche will also give an introductory teaching on her and will join us in a Q&A session during the retreat. The practice sessions on the weekend will be transmitted online as well.

Marichi (also known as Marīcī and Özer Chenma) came to Rinpoche’s life when he was a young boy herding yak cattles in Tibet. Without fences, it was quite difficult to take care of them. Some yaks hide themselves from the boy Rinpoche under rocks, and so used to spend the night in danger of being attacked by wolves. To help protect them, his family shared with him the Marichi mantra and the faith in her when he was still very young.

“I do not know exactly why, perhaps because of having no doubt when doing this or because of a special connection, when I recited her mantra and did the ritual according to the traditional manner of protecting the yaks, I have 100% guarantee that the yaks would be safe during the night. I never had problems with yaks being killed by the wolves since then, really never. So I kept that in mind and I recited innumerable mantras, many times, when I took care of them. So, afterwards, anytime when we had an obstacle I always relied on her.”

“So this is why Tibetan says that praying for Marichi helps. But, of course, it does not help everyone individually, as it depends for example on the individual connection and on the level of faith. You must have no doubt at all. I have indestructible faith in Marichi since my childhood, so this helped me to develop many connections with her during my life.”

Refuge And Bodhisattva Vows

Refuge And Bodhisattva Vows

This is a FREE event. It is traditional to make an offering to the Lama for this event. You may send your donation as an offering.
This event will be available both Online and In-person.

Refuge Vow

Until you have taken refuge, you have not committed your spiritual practice to a life direction. And once you take the refuge vow, you are recognizing that you yourself have Buddha nature and can unveil it. To do that, you need the support of a guide, (the Buddha), instructions on how to reveal your nature (the Dharma) and friends on the journey to keep you moving in the right direction (the Sangha). Taking refuge changes your life priorities and firmly plants you moving in the direction towards your Buddha nature. This is the first step as an official Buddhist on the path. While you can take it in your heart which is the most important form, you can also take it with a Buddhist master. It represents turning toward a genuine spiritual path that can be of benefit not only to ourselves but to others as well. Khentrul Rinpoche will offer this vow to those who would like to take it. Since this is the moment you recognizing yourself as part of the family of the Buddhas, you are given a new name, a refuge name which has profound meaning based on the qualities of the ultimate truth which you will work to cultivate and reveal in yourself. You can receive one in person or request one online.

Bodhisattva Vow

For those who want to know the truth of their nature, but also want everyone else to know the truth of their nature – there is the Bodhisattva Vow. This is a ceremony to commit to or to validate your choice to help all sentient beings in the 10 directions and 3 times to know their own sacred truth. It’s a commitment to help others awaken no matter what it takes, no matter how long, and no matter when it happens. It is a commitment to be here for their benefit. This is a step to cultivating the heart of love and compassion and the warrior spirit and energy that will stop at nothing to help other people see their truth.

The Bodhisattva Vow can only be taken after you have taken the Refuge Vow. In taking this vow, you move from a path of individual awakening to one of communal awakening commit to love and compassion as your path.

具光佛母 摩利支天隨許及黃金世紀開示

具光佛母 摩利支天隨許及黃金世紀開示




摩利支天(梵文 Marīcī ,藏文 : Özer Chenma 具光佛母)從仁波切孩童時代開始便守護著他,當時他只是在藏地的一個牧牛童。沒有圍欄,很難看顧好牛隻,一些犛牛會躲在大石後,不讓孩童時的仁波切看到。但到了晚上,牠們便會很容易受到狼群的襲擊。為了保護牛隻,仁波切的家人教導年紀小小的仁波切念誦摩利支天咒,及講述對摩利支天的信心。

Secrets of Shambhala and the Golden Age

Secrets of Shambhala and the Golden Age

This event will be in English with live Spanish translation, other languages will be available on Zoom only.

We are in an incredible moment in time right now. The world is changing rapidly. While some people may think it is getting worse with the riots, pandemic, economic and political problems, it’s a rare opportunity for rapid transformation.
We are not passive observers in the world. It takes courage to transform. It takes courage to change. It takes courage to bring about a time of abundance and peace.|
Through our genuine dharma practice, we have a profound opportunity to change our world into the Golden Age of peace, harmony, and abundance.

What does it take to manifest peace and harmony?
Khentrul Rinpoche will give teachings on the meaning and origin of Dzokden Dharma (Golden Age Dharma) referred to by Taranatha and Dolpopa. He will explain how the Kalachakra tantra prophesizes a time of peace and harmony for our planet and how we can speed up that time. Form a stronger connection to Shambhala by understanding the stages that Shambhala pure land went through to realize peace and harmony. Learn and decide what you can do yourself to contribute to the manifestation of Dzokden, the golden age.

Through discussion, questions, and sharing throughout the day we will come to an understanding of how we personally can be part of this global shift to bring about the Golden Age now.
