2024 Yamantaka Online Empowerment & Online Practice with Pre-recorded Videos

February 1 @ 12:00 pm - February 9 @ 12:00 pm PST


Online Empowerment & Online Practice with Pre-recorded Videos

H.E. Garchen Rinpoche
and Garchen Institute Lamas

In-Person February 1 – 9, 2024 Retreat FULL and CLOSED

Online Live-stream only at 5:30 am MST on February 9, 2024

The Yamantaka drubchen, traditionally held near the end of the Tibetan year, is conducted in order to cleanse all obstacles not only for oneself, but for every being in the world. This cleansing is most easily accomplished at this time of the year and helps to decrease suffering and increase peace. The deity practiced in this drubchen is very wrathful and powerful, and thus the practice must be done with great care.

We are preparing for our first in person Yamantaka in four years, which is full and closed. The In Person Yamantaka Drubchen will be February 1 to February 9, 2024.

However, we invite the worldwide sangha to participate online.
