Jan 6 - 22

Namgyalma is generally considered as one of the three long life deities. Jhado Rinpoche explained that the Namgyalma practice not only dispels life obstacles; it also purifies negativities (evil: digpa) and downfalls and protects against birth in the lower realms.

Jhado Rinpoche will give the full empowerment of Namgyalma and give teachings on the Namgyalma tantra, as well as giving instructions on how to do the retreat from Nov 3 – 5.

On Nov 6 morning, Jhado Rinpcohe will start us on the retreat, which will take 16 days. Jhado Rinpoche will return at the end of our retreat to give instructions on the fire puja and guide us in the ritual.
