The Windhorse of Authentic Presence

with Henry Chapin
September 27 / 7:00 PM - September 29 / 6:00 PM

This weekend program will focus on The Windhorse of Authentic Presence, a Gesar sadhana composed by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Participants will receive the lung or transmission to practice this sadhana along with related instructions and commentary.

The main point of this sadhana is to accomplish our own wishes and to benefit others by realizing the all-pervasiveness of basic goodness and invoking the drala energy of the Great Eastern Sun, as represented by Gesar, without which there is no possibility of creating enlightened society.
