Special Close Retreat ~ collecting 100,000 Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka mantras
This retreat will be unguided. Kelsang Gyalpo will provide an introduction for this retreat at the evening session on Wed 4th. This special close retreat is following the oral instructions transmitted directly to Gen-la Dekyong from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche and shared at the International NKT Spring Festival 2022 in Málaga. Together at KMC Liverpool, we will draw closer and closer to our Root Guru, and create very powerful actions that will cause Kadam Dharma to flourish in our hearts and throughout the world. There is no better offering to repay our Guru’s kindness.

The retreat will be followed by a Vajradhaka Burning Offering to complete this retreat.

Please read – ‘What is Retreat’ from Heart Jewel book or New Guide to Dakini Land Book.
