This fire practice is one of the advanced practices of the Six Yogas to be found in Vajrayana Buddhism. Its purpose is to gain complete control over all body functions resulting in perfect health and continuous bliss. This is an extremely precious and rare teaching.
The blazing heat of this fundamental Tummo yoga within the completion stage purifies the ordinary body’s channels and energies, thereby transforming it into the deity’s body. The teaching includes the essential Yuthok Nyingthig empowerment, transmission and explanations, and sessions of guided group practice.
Pre-requisite: In order to attend this teaching, one must first complete a seven day Yuthok Nyingthig ngöndro retreat, either alone or in a group. Completion of ngöndro preliminary practices in another tradition also fulfills this pre-requisite. A group ngöndro retreat will be held at Pure Land Farms August 25th - 31st.
$300 suggested donation. Early registration $250 (before August 1st). $500 for Tummo and Karmamudra combined practice (including the Yoga of Bliss introduction on September 24th). Lunch included on full day practices.
All proceeds from this program will go towards Yuthok Ling temple, currently under construction at Pure Land Farms!
Space is limited, please register early. Please note this is a non-residential retreat. If you are traveling to Los Angeles to attend these teachings, there are several hotels and Airbnb within a short driving direction of Pure Land Farms. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like assistance in coordinating accommodation or rides with other students.
