Fridays starting September 18 | 4–5:15PM
The Blissful Path Weekly Class is open to those with Highest Yoga Tantra (HYT) Empowerment from the New Kadampa Tradition or those who have the wish to receive the next HYT Empowerment.
Gain experience with your Highest Yoga Tantra practice in preparation for the upcoming counting retreats in January, 2021!
During this weekly class series, we will engage in the practice of The Blissful Path under the guidance of Gen Chokyan along with teachings using Modern Buddhism and The New Guide to Dakini Land. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain the experience we need to strengthen our connection with Vajrayogini and make personal progress in your tantric practice.
To practice the sadhana The Blissful Path successfully we must have first received the empowerment of Highest Yoga Tantra and then study authentic instructions on the practice such as those found in the commentary The New Guide to Dakini Land. This comprehensive guide provides a detailed and practical explanation of the two stages of Vajrayogini practice—generation stage and completion stage—and shows how we can integrate these practices into our daily life, thereby transforming every moment of our life into the path to enlightenment.
“In many respects the practice of Vajrayogini is ideally suited to the present day. By relying upon this practice sincerely, with a good heart and a mind of faith, it is definitely possible to attain full enlightenment; but to accomplish such results we must practice the extensive sadhana regularly.” —Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
>>The Blissful Path sadhana as well as the audio cd or download can be purchased from Tharpa.com.
The Blissful Path is the condensed sadhana or ritual prayer for spiritual attainment that contains the essence of the self-generation practice of Vajrayogini – the female enlightened Deity of Highest Yoga Tantra who is the manifestation of the wisdom of all Buddhas. Those who wish to train in the self-generation practice of Vajrayogini as a daily practice, but who have insufficient time or ability to practice either the extensive or middling sadhanas, can fulfill their aim and draw closer to the attainment of Buddha Vajrayogini by practicing this short sadhana with strong faith
*For HYT practitioners only.
