Buddhist Retreat

Heruka & Vajrayogini Retreat

Special Retreat

The month of January, is a powerful time for Highest Yoga Tantra practitioners of Heruka and Vajrayogini to make offerings and do retreat. 

The teachings of Tantra, or Secret Mantra as it is sometimes called, are
the rarest and most precious of Buddha’s teachings. It is only by
following the path of Secret Mantra that we can attain enlightenment, or

Vajradhara Trijang Rinpoche, says in his ritual prayer of Heruka:
‘As times become ever more impure,
Your power and blessings ever increase,
And you care for us quickly, as 
swift as thought,
O Chakrasambara, Father and Mother 
Heruka, to you I prostrate.’
[Excerpt from New Essence of Vajrayana, by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Rinpoche]

Please note:
Before engaging in either of these practices it is necessary to receive the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerment and instructions from a qualified Spiritual Guide. These empowerments are given every other year at International Kadampa Festivals, and occasionally at other events, including at October 2024 at
NKT International Fall Festival in Brazil.

Wonderful oasis of calm in a hectic world. What I've learnt here has helped me and those connected with me, in every aspect of life. The resident teacher, Ai Peng, is knowledgable, helpful and kind, and displays a perfect example of a Buddhist Practitioner. Well worth a visit.

A lovely, peaceful place where it was fantastic to think in a different way and try and clear my mind. Not something I would usually have done in the past - but would definitely come back again when solace is needed or after a busy week.
