MELBOURNE: SUNDAY, 22 SEPTEMBER – SATURDAY, 12 OCTOBER 2019
An opportunity for practitioners who have received Vajrayogini empowerment to quickly remove obstacles and deepen their meditation practice during our 3-week biennial retreat.
- Vajrayogini is an extraordinary purification practice.
- Students join six sessions of guided meditation each day and complete 100,000 mantras.
- The retreat concludes with the traditional fire puja.
- The authoritative Vajrayogini commentary, ‘Path to the Union of Clear Light and Illusory Body’, by the great Tibetan scholar and spiritual guide, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, is the basis for retreat teachings and meditations.
Les Sheehy, a long-term student of the Tibetan Buddhist Society’s founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, and main teacher and director of the Tibetan Buddhist Society in Perth – will lead the retreat.
Les received these teachings from his Gurus, Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden and Zasep Tulku Rinpoche, and has taught and led both Vajrayogini and Yamantaka retreats for many years.
IDEAL RETREAT LOCATION
The Peaceful Land of Joy is set in beautiful rural surroundings just outside Melbourne. It is an ideal place for meditation, Dharma study and practice.
The centre’s traditional Tibetan holy temple, blessed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2002, is a clear and peaceful space, with a glorious 18 foot Buddha statue, and adorned with traditional thangkas and Tibetan ornamentation.
Between meditation sessions, students can relax in 10 acres of beautiful gardens. You can stay at the centre, which is a 15-minute drive from Melbourne Airport and 45 minutes from the city centre.
