Take advantage of the MLK Jr holiday and enjoy a long weekend in the countryside training in the Creative Yoga, or Generation Stage, meditations of Buddha Heruka. In a quiet and peaceful wooded setting, the retreat will include silent mornings and evenings to promote deeper absorption into meditation.
Following instructions given in "Essence of Vajrayana," "Modern Buddhism" and recent Summer Festivals, Gen Menla will skillfully guide us into a special experience of becoming Heruka. Through this you will gain a special experience of transforming yourself out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary.
Buddha Heruka is an enlightened deity of Highest Yoga Tantra who is the manifestation of the compassion of all Buddhas. This retreat will present a clear understanding of how we can become this Buddha ourself and offer guided meditations in the practice of doing so.
Enlightenment is really very simple. By learning how to change ourself through correct belief and imagination, as presented in Tantra, we can swiftly become an enlightened Buddha Heruka. Through this you will gain confidence in your ability to become an enlightened person and bring happiness and benefit to everyone around you.
The teachings will be taken from the book Modern Buddhism, which can be downloaded free here.
This retreat is open to those with Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments given in the New Kadampa Tradition; and to those without empowerment who have the sincere wish to practice Highest Yoga Tantra and the intention to receive the empowerments soon.
