Notes on the programme:

 

 

"Three Principle Aspects of the Path" -

is one of the representative texts of the Lam-Rim Cycle of teachings.

It includes all the major teachings of the sutra and is an indispensable pre-requisite and foundation for all subsequent tantric practice.

Geshe Delek will be offering the complete teaching and oral-transmission of this essential text.

 

 

Thirteen Deity Yamantaka Vajrabhairava -

This will be the first time the complete revelation of all major aspects of this major Tantric Cycle of Yamantaka will be offered in Singapore.

Buddha Vajradhara Himself has spoken of the critical importance of practice of this great cycle of tantra without which success in one's spiritual path will be extremely difficult.

The Yamantaka cycle includes all major features of both the Father and Mother tantras and contains "Five Unique Features" uncommon to others.

 

Participants for this programme must undertake to observe the Pratimoksha Vows, the Bodhisattva Vows and the Tantric Vows.

To maintain purity of observance of these vows, students must recite a Guru-Yoga text six times daily. The text consists of one A4-size page and normally takes 5 to 15 minutes to complete recitation all six times.

The extensive "sadhana" or practice text of the 13 Deity Yamantaka will be offered for all participants.

 

 

Golden Jambhala and Green Tara Pujas and Initiations -

The Golden Jambhala and Green Tara are important practices for assisting the practitioner on his or her path to Enlightenment as well advancement and progress in the worldly sphere.

It is considered highly blessed to receive initiations from and to have Pujas being conducted on one's behalf by great Masters.

There is no specific pre-requisite nor commitments to observe to attend these 2 programmes.
