Meditation retreat and torma workshop with Lama Sangye Mönlam
This winter at Yeshe Sal Ling, we focus on the essential: progress in meditation. There will be four meditation sessions per day, guided by Lama Sangye Mönlam, each starting with the recitation of Ma Gyud gong choe nam sum (Lama, Yidam and Khandro practice). We will also practice Ma Gyud drib-sel (clearing of obscuractions) and the Ma Gyud five root wind trulkhors. Both practices increase clarity of meditation.
Between sessions Lama Sangye will conduct a torma workshop: teaching us how to make simple tormas for use at tsok, sangchoe, and other rituals. We will use the tormas at a Drenpa Namkha tsok. (Another opportunity to learn how to make tormas will be on Jan 22, during the preparations for the Gutor ritual Jan 23-26.)
This is an opportunity to learn and practice the Ma Gyud melodies and the way the damaru is played in Ma Gyud rituals.
Suitable for beginners, advanced practitioners, and everybody inbetween!
