Feast of Dharma: Vajrayana Intensive

With Larry Mermelstein

February 12-18


In this program, we intend to bring the vajra-sangha together to practice, especially, in terms of clearing obstacles, amending samaya, and celebrating sacred world.

This program will take place at the start of the end-of-year mamo recitation, so it is an ideal time to cleanse and purify our practice leading up to Shambhala Day on February 24th.

The intensive will include talks, practice, and discussion on ngöndro, Vajrayogini, Chakrasamvara, Vajrakilaya, and Werma sadhanas.

On Wednesday evening, February 12th, Larry will be offering four different lungs: a short Tara practice by the Vidyadhara Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche (open to all), a short Avalokiteshvara terma sadhana (different from the long one, also by the Vidyadhara, open to all tantrikas), Vajrakilaya daily practice (open to all tantrikas), and Krodhikali (open to Vajrayogini practitioners only).

Here is a tentative schedule (subject to change):


Thursday through Saturday:

9am-12:30pm: ngöndro/Vajrayogini/Chakrasamvara practice with talk and discussion.

12:30-2pm: Lunch

2-4:30pm: ngöndro/Vajrayogini/Chakrasamvara practice

4:30pm: Tea

5-6pm: Vajrakilaya (Thursday & Saturday), Werma (Friday)

6-6:30pm: protector and mamo chants



10am-1pm: Sadhana of Mahamudra feast with talk and discussion. (Open to all)



9am-12pm: Werma Sadhana practice and discussion



2pm Vajrayogini feast & closing of retreat
