The Very Essence of Guru Yoga

16 & 23 Nov | 7:30-9pm

KMC Sydney – Surry Hills

A Special 2 week event - Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka Retreat Instructions

The very essence of Guru Yoga

Course Description

At the 2022 NKT-IKBU International Spring Festival in Malaga, Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong shared an important instruction from Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
He asked Gen-la Dekyong to give the transmission and commentary of the Mantra of Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka, requesting all New Kadampa Tradition Centres and practitioners to engage in retreat to collect 100,000 recitations of this mantra, as well as 10,000 Vajradaka mantras with burning offerings.
Gen-la Dekyong explained how this mantra is the very essence of the Guru Yoga of Guru Sumati Buddha Heruka. By reciting this mantra with faith, a pure motivation, and strong conviction in the law of cause and effect we will place very strong potentials within our mind to easily accomplish all spiritual attainments – this is magical!
Over these two Wednesday night classes, Gen Lhachog will explain how we can fulfil Venerable Geshe-la’s request by completing this retreat ourself.
Not only will you receive great benefit for yourself, but as Venerable Geshe-la said, this retreat is a wishfulfilling jewel for the development of Kadam Dharma internationally.

The Teacher

Gen Kelsang Lhachog, the Resident Teacher at KMC Sydney will teach this series of classes. With 25 years’ experience in meditation, Gen Lhachog explains Buddha’s teachings with sincerity and kindness, in a way that is clear and easy to apply to our daily life.
