IMPORTANT NOTICE – AN EARLY START TO THE VAJRAYOGINI MANTRA RETREAT IS RECOMMENDED

It is recommended to begin the retreat in advance at home in order to complete the full mantra accumulation by the closing time on March 4. It will be difficult to complete 100,000 mantras in 8 days. Some may prefer to begin at home on their own timeline. The preliminaries for that purpose are part of the retreat instructions available upon registration.

Some may also choose to open their retreat in advance as part of a Jewel Heart Vajrayogini wide group on Saturday, January 27 via webinar. Details are also available upon registration.

Also, the fire puja (and tsoh) is required to fully complete a first Vajrayogini 100,000 mantra retreat.
Those who have already completed a full Vajrayogini retreat and fire puja may attend the fire puja if they wish. Otherwise, they are welcome to close and complete with their tsoh offering on their own.
