Guru Yoga Mandala Retreat

June 11 - 15
Guru yoga is an especially powerful method for receiving the blessings of the Buddhas and increasing our merit. In this retreat, we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit and receiving blessings. Making mandala offerings is the gateway to accumulating the collection of merit and attaining an enlightened pure land and Guru yoga is the gateway to receiving powerful blessings of all the Buddhas of the ten directions through our Spiritual Guide. This is a self-guided retreat. Session times offered at the Center for group practice will be posted soon.
