Closer to Buddha Retreat

Sunday 13 November

With Gen Kelsang Drolkyi

About this retreat

On this day retreat we will engage in the Guru Yoga of Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka and gain experience of reciting his mantra. This will help us draw closer and closer to our Root Guru, and create very powerful actions that will cause Kadam Dharma to flourish in our hearts and throughout the world.

There is no better offering to repay our Guru’s kindness. At the 2022 NKT-IKBU International Spring Festival in Malaga, following Venerable Geshe-la’s advice, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong gave the transmission and commentary of the mantra of Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka. By reciting this mantra with faith, we will place very strong potentials within our mind to easily accomplish all spiritual attainments. This is magical!

The instructions given on this retreat will enable people to engage in a close retreat collecting 100,000 recitations of this mantra, as well as 10,000 Vajradaka mantras with burning offerings, either on their own or at an NKT Centre.

Everyone is welcome to attend.
