Ganden Lhagyema
The Ganden Lhagyema, one of the most important practices in our tradition, deepens the connection with the enlightened through meditational exercises that enrich inner development on the spiritual path. Grounded in appreciation for our spiritual teacher, this is a practice of guru devotion, considered to be the “backbone” of our spiritual practice and the root of all spiritual development. This study group will also focus on specific visualization practices interwoven with the mantra commonly referred to as Migtsema. Gelek Rimpoche’s transcript Ganden Lhagyema, The Uncommon Teachings is the basis of the study group.

Restricted to those with Highest Yoga Tantra initiation
