About the Retreat
This winter retreat, on the beautiful Isle of Arran, offers a rare opportunity to leave behind the distractions of daily life and deepen your experience of the joyful practice of Vajrayogini. Gen Kelsang Drolkyi will guide us through the profound meditations of this tantric practice. The yoga of self-generation as well as meditation on the body mandala will be emphasised in this retreat. This retreat is perfect for anyone who wishes to begin a Vajrayogini practice or would like a refresher and deepening of their existing tantric meditation practice.
“Just as fire quickly destroys objects,
The recitations and meditations of Heruka and Vajrayogini
Quickly destroy suffering.
When such practitioners experience death,
Various emanations will appear to them
With offerings such as flowers and beautiful music,
And lead them to the Pure Land of Keajra.
For such practitioners, death is just mere name –
They are simply moved from the prison of samsara
To the Pure Land of Buddha Heruka.” – Buddha Shakyamuni
Gen Kelsang Drolkyi is the Resident Teacher at KMC Glasgow and a senior teacher in the New Kadampa Tradition. With 30 years of experience including 27 years of ordination, she has inspired people worldwide through her knowledge, skill and loving example.
