Quick Path to Great Bliss

Both Quick Path to Great Bliss and Dakini Yoga are Highest Yoga Tantra practices of Buddha Vajrayogini, containing all the essential practices of Secret Mantra. These sessions are open only to those who have received the appropriate empowerment.

Vajrayogini is a female Highest Yoga Tantra Deity who is the embodiment of indivisible bliss and emptiness. She is the same nature as Heruka. The instruction of Vajrayogini is the most profound teaching of Highest Yoga Tantra. In many respects, it is ideally suited to the present day, for example because it reveals how we can transform our attachments into the spiritual path. Originally taught by Buddha Vajradhara within Heruka Tantra, it is the supreme method for purifying our environment, body and mind, and is one of the main practices of the Kadampa tradition.

Going Deep with Vajrayogini Body Mandala

A nine-session guided retreat available on-demand from July 4th to July 19th

Going Deep with Vajrayogini Body Mandala
Recognizing its superiority over the body mandala practices of other Deities, many highly realized practitioners have praised the profound body mandala practice of Vajrayogini. It is an especially powerful method for blessing our channels, drops and winds. Through such blessings our inner winds will gather and dissolve within the central channel at our heart, and this will cause us to experience the clear light of bliss, the actual quick path leading to Buddhahood.

Je Tsongkhapa said that the attainment of spontaneous great bliss depends upon the channels and drops being blessed by Heroes and Heroines. Meditating on the body mandala enables us to receive these blessings. When we visualize our channels and drops in the aspect of Heroines, the Heroines of the twenty-four holy places actually enter into our channels and drops and bless them. This helps us to develop great bliss.  
   --The New Guide to Dakini Land

This will be a fantastic opportunity to go deep with Vajrayogini body mandala practice. We will increase both our knowledge and understanding of Vajrayogini body mandala, and also our familiarity with gently meditating on it. Teachings will be based on The New Guide to Dakini Land and previous oral teachings of venerable Geshe-la.
