We all wish for spiritual realizations, but these depend upon creating certain inner conditions such as purifying negativity, accumulating merit, and receiving blessings.

In this guided retreat we focus on the preliminary practices of accumulating merit, or positive energy, by making mandala offerings and receiving blessings by engaging in Guru Yoga practice. This is a special practice that enables us to strengthen our connection with our Spiritual Guide. We engage in the practice of correct belief and imagination by envisioning and offering pure worlds.  In this retreat, we offer a pure world through correct imagination by making mandala offerings to the holy beings. To offer mandalas we can construct traditional rice mandalas or we can simply visualize pure worlds. Because the mind creates through karma, this practice is a powerful way to create good fortune through imagination. We receive powerful blessings through engaging in this practice.

This retreat is with Offering to the Spiritual Guide prayers in conjunction with the migtsema prayer. We have quiet time concentrate and meditate while constructing traditional rice mandalas and visualizations.

If you are not familiar with this retreat, it is necessary to attend the Friday night introductory session.
