SAVE THE DATES for In person and hybrid teachings. From April 1st to May 18th.
Lama Tsering, recognized as an emanation of Tara by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, will bestow the empowerment and teachings that will enable you to enter into this rich and powerful practice. This is one of the key meditations practiced at all CGF centers
The T’hroma-based practice of Chöd removes obstacles, both for our short-term happiness and those hindering our ultimate enlightenment. Tromge Jigme Rinpoche will serve as vajra master and umze for this event.
The fasting ritual practice is an easy yet powerful means to clear away obstacles to physical and mental well-being. It brings the practitioner to the essence of the supreme secret of Avalokiteshvara, the compassionate expression of all buddhas.
Tromge Jigme Rinpoche will continue the series of annual summer retreats covering all aspects of Vajrayana practice, including meditations, deity yoga sadhana, ritual arts and texts relevant to all nine yanas.
