The practice of the five Raksa (Protectresses) grants long life. They protect kingdoms, villages and meadows. They protect us from evil spirits, diseases and famines, and from all possible dangers that may befall humanity.

We will start this practice together for the benefit of both ourselves, and the development of the Temple of Heaven on Earth and will continue after the weekend at home until we all complete 100,000 mantras.

Summer retreat on Vajravali deities or Vajra Garland: Maritse and Vajrapani Bhutadamara

Transmission  and mantra recitation on the Vajravali or Vajra Garland is a collection of tantric empowerments and sadhana practices systemized by Abhayākaragupta (Jigme Jungne Bepa) in the 12th century.  He was a Buddhist monk, scholar and tantric master and the abbot of Vikramasila, one of medieval India’s main study and practice centers of tantric Buddhism.

The Vajravali is a compendium of texts of the various tantric deities and rituals. It is important because it comprises a single harmonized tantric ritual system or Ocean of Mandalas that can be applied to all tantric Buddhist mandalas. The cycle contains empowerments and blessing rituals of various aspects of deities including  Kalachakra, Guhyasamaja, Heruka, Yamantaka, Hevajra, Vajrayogini,  and the Five Buddha Families.
Lama Gangchen Rinpoche advised starting the series of Vajravali  retreats with the practices of Guru Buddha Maritse and Guru Buddha Vajrapani Bhutadamara.

Black Manjushri residential retreat

Black Manjushri is the wrathful healing form of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. This practice helps us to heal our deep inner negative emotions and the mental sufferings that arise due to problems or sickness; it is also a powerful antidote against the harm and disturbances caused by negative astrological influences and wrong Feng Shui in the houses. It helps us to confront and deal with the negative emotions such as anger, depression, fear and denial that arise when we are challenged by serious health problems or when we are confronted with problems in our daily life.

The practice of Black Manjushri can also be used to purify the negative consequences that can be created, for example, when we perform a marriage ceremony, hold a cremation or cut down trees on astrologically inauspicious days. This practice gives us the opportunity to stop our energy flowing into the wrong path due to astrological influences.
