Guru Yoga and Mandala Offering Retreat

The practice of Guru yoga is a special way of relying upon our Spiritual Guide.

“One moment of Guru yoga can accumulate as much merit as is accumulated over many aeons through other practices. Furthermore, the attainment of Buddhahood, which takes aeons to accomplish through other practices, can be accomplished in one life through the practice of Guru yoga. This was demonstrated by Dromtönpa, the heart disciple of Atisha, and by Khädrubje, the heart disciple of Je Tsongkhapa.
Geshe Potowa says:
Whether or not our Spiritual Guide is precious
Depends upon us and not upon our Spiritual Guide.
If we view our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha we shall receive the blessings of a Buddha, if we view him or her as a Bodhisattva we shall receive the blessings of a Bodhisattva, and if we view him or her as an ordinary being we shall receive nothing.”
– Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, The New Essence of Vajrayana

The teacher of this course is Gen Kelsang Jigme. Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.
