Event description
This extraordinary retreat offers the opportunity to gain deep experience of training in the five stages of Mahamudra.

About this Event

During this retreat, we will explore the profound and uncommon practices of the Ganden Oral Lineage as presented by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche in the text The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra. Each of the five guided sessions will focus in turn on the five stages of training in Mahamudra meditation as they are presented in this extraordinary text.

The first session of each day will be taught and guided by Gen Rinzin, and will be made available on demand for later viewing. The two daily unguided sessions give an opportunity to strengthen the concentration practice of the morning session. Participants can submit questions at any time during the retreat, and Gen Rinzin will answer them the following morning.

  • Saturday - Monday, January 23 - 25 - Introduction available to view
  • Tuesday, January 26 - Tranquil Abiding
  • Wednesday, January 27 - Superior Seeing
  • Thursday, January 28 - Central Channel
  • Friday, January 29 - Indestructible Drop
  • Saturday, January 30 - Yoga of Wind

Highest Yoga Tantra practitioners, as well as those who have a sincere wish to receive their Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments soon, are welcome to participate.

About the Teacher

Gen Kelsang Rinzin was ordained as a Buddhist monk in 2004 and taught at Heruka Buddhist Center in Fort Collins for 15 years. He was appointed to the Resident Teacher position at Kadampa Meditation Center Washington in October 2020. Gen Rinzin communicates his love of Dharma with a down to earth approach and humor that helps others to appreciate and understand the teachings and put them into practice. His teachings are clear and practical so that the listener can readily integrate the methods for developing a peaceful mind into their busy, modern life.
