Program May 8-9
May 8 – initiation of Vajrayogini and transmission and explanation of the practice of the stage of initiation (kierima) of Vajrayogini
Vajrayogini is one of the main Yidams associated with the practice systems of the Six Yogas of Naropa and the Six Yogas of Niguma. This is the embodiment of the timeless openness and bliss of our true nature. Communication with her and meditation on her is a source of unlimited inspiration. Meditation of the stage of initiation can be performed both in connection with the practice of the Six Yogas, and as an independent practice.’
