Yuthok Nyingthig Ngöndro Retreat

Seven day guided group Yuthok Nyingthig Ngöndro Retreat

Ngöndro, meaning ‘preliminary practices’ is the root of the tree out of which all other Vajrayana Buddhist practices grow. Yuthok’s ngöndro, traditionally done in the context of a seven day retreat is incredibly transformative to one's mind, health, and life, and is the gateway into the profound path of the Yuthok Nyingthig. This seven day intensive retreat combines sessions of silent meditation, group chanting, visualization and contemplation, as well as instruction in the practice.

Guided by Christiana Polites

Residential and non-residential options (both options include three meals daily). Early registration rate ends January 1st, 2018.

Offered extremely rarely, the complete set of Yuthok empowerments includes:

  1. Root Empowerment (rtsa ba mchog dbang)

  2. Essential Ripening Empowerment (smin byed don dbang)

The Yuthok Nyingthig (Tib. གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་), the ‘Heart Essence of Yuthok’, composed by Yuthok the Younger, is a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice, beginning with the preliminary practices (Tib. སྔོན་འགྲོ་ “ngöndro”) and progressing through the development and completion stage practices to the highest practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. It is characterized by its concise and simple methods which bring about both worldly benefits, including improved health and longevity, as well as the ultimate benefit of complete spiritual liberation. The Yuthok Nyingthig is the main spiritual practice of Tibetan physicians, and it contains many unique techniques to heighten the intuition and healing capacities of the doctor.

7:00 PM19:00

Yuthok Nyingthig Ganapuja

Join special guest Dr. Nida Chenagtsang and Sorig Khang Los Angeles this dakini day for a Ganapuja feast offering in the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition.

The Ganapuja (Tib. ཚོགས་མཆོད་ “tsok chöd”) feast offering is a practice of the mindful enjoyment of the sense pleasures that is held regularly on Medicine Buddha Day, the eighth day of the Tibetan lunar month. This practice offers a powerful method for purifying obscurations and accumulating merit, and provides an opportunity for us to gather to share prayers, food, and company. Before the puja, we will do a short Medicine Buddha healing practice, received from Dr. Nida Chenagtsang. This meditation is a simple method for healing self and others.

Please bring an offering of food, drink, and/or flowers for the feast.
