10am-5pm – Calm Abiding with Special insight Practice – $50 per day
“When you see reality, no illusions can confuse you;
when you develop stability, things cannot shake it or take it away.”

Only by combining the heightened state of concentration known as calm abiding with special insight into the nature of reality can liberation from cyclic existence be attained. Calm abiding forms the basis for special insight. The great Indian master Atisha also points out that for Bodhisattvas the attainment of a calmly abiding mind is essential in order to develop the different kinds of extra-sensory perception that allow them to work more efficiently for living beings.

Long Life White Heruka Initiation – commitments – Bodhisattva, Tantric Vows and daily recitation of White Heruka mantra $25

This is an Annutarayoga (Highest Yoga) Tantra initiation. Bodhisattva and tantric vows, as well as a daily mantra commitment, will be given according to tradition.

There was a series of teachings given to Lama Tsongkhapa from his direct communication with Manjushri, these teachings are called the Kadam Emanation Scripture. The initiation and its special instructions for practice are the very essence of those teachings that Je Tsongkhapa and Lama Umapa received from the Wisdom Buddha, Manjushri. It contains many secret instructions that were only handed down orally from Guru to disciple. Yanchen Drupai Dorje composed this sadhana from the oral instructions he received from Ngulchu Dharmabhadra. This is the most profound method for prolonging life, dispelling obstacles and increasing one’s merit that Manjushri himself had to offer.
