The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra

  • International Kadampa Retreat Center Grand Canyon 6701 East Mountain Ranch Resort Drive Williams, AZ, 86046 United States (map)

Introducing a special Weekend Course with Gen-la Jampa at the new IKRC Grand Canyon! 

Buddha explained many methods to liberate ourself and others from suffering. Of these, the uncommon instructions of Tantric Mahamudra of the Ganden Oral Lineage are an especially powerful way to purify our mind quickly and to reach our fullest potential, the supreme bliss of enlightenment. 

During this special weekend event, Gen-la Kelsang Jampa will give essential commentary to the practice of The Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra, including how to make progress on the five stages of Mahamudra. Through listening to and meditating on these instructions, we will deepen our understanding and experience of this rare and precious lineage of teachings given to us by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche. 

This special weekend event is being held at the NEW International Kadampa Retreat Center at the Grand Canyon!
