Taught by Lharampa Geshe Wangchen
Beginning 28 February 2023
Important class prerequisites:
In order to join this specific intermediate/advanced level class you must have already received a Highest Yoga Tantra Initiation from a qualified master and you must register in advance.
Doing the practice of Six-Session Guru Yoga is a lifetime daily commitment for those who have received a Highest Yoga Tantra Initiation. Geshe Wangchen has been requested to give explanation about how to do this practice.
Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche explains that “the practice of Six-Session Guru Yoga has unbelievable benefits. It gives incredible protection. This practice eliminates so much heavy negative karma and purifies all ten nonvirtuous actions. It purifies broken pratimoksha vows, bodhisattva vows, and tantric vows. It allows us to practice the general tantric vows, the samayas of the five buddha families, and the particular tantric root vows… We accumulate unbelievable merit by keeping the samayas and vows of tantra.”
This class is scheduled to run for approximately 12 (TBC) Tuesday night sessions (7.30 – 9pm). The class begins on 28 February. There is no class on 7 March as there will be a Buddha Day Program that day.
Registration is required.
Facility Fee: $10 per session (Dharma Friend Monthly Contributors are free)
