Ösel Nyingtig Cycle: Yeshe Tsogyal Sadhana – ONLINE

With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Dorje Gyaltsab Tulku Ösel Dorje

August 5 - 10, 2023

In this retreat we will continue to go deeper into the dakini world of Yeshe Tsogyal. The auspicious interdependence that was set in motion in last year’s The Excellent Path of Great Bliss of the Dakini Ngöndro is brought to fruition in this practice. This Sadhana or Means for Accomplishing White Tsogyal known as The Glorious Treasure of Great Bliss has the potency to bless us so that we can completely overcome all the deluded appearances of samsara and nirvana without exception by bringing forth naturally occurring primordial wisdom and great bliss. Through this method for Accomplishing White Tsogyal one can completely realize and become inseparable with Yeshe Tsogyal’s enlightened Body, Speech, and Mind.

The Means for Accomplishing White Tsogyal is a mind treasure (Tib. dgongs gter) from A.dzom Rinpoche’s Ösel Nyingtig terma cycle which was revealed in 2007 at the “spirit lake” of Yeshe Tsogyal’s birth place when Yeshe Tsogyal revealed herself to A.dzom Rinpoche. Rinpoche has said that by relying on this fresh dharma one can swiftly achieve accomplishment. The benefits and qualities of this practice are extraordinary because this lineage is so extremely short that the blessings of this path are direct. In this short practice, the expressions of truth reveal an immensity of wisdom in just a few words. The meaning that is conveyed in this Glorious Treasure of Great Bliss brings to light in an unerring way all the key points that lead to Buddhahood. 

During the first three days of the retreat, participants will receive all the instructions for Yeshe’s The Glorious Treasure of Great Bliss sadhana. Following that retreatants will immerse themselves in both group practices in the Tara Temple and solo practice on the land. In this period of deep practice, there will be further opportunities to clarify questions that may arise during one’s practice.  

Tara Mandala invites you to join us as we continue to unfurl the excellent path of awakening through the means of accomplishing Yeshe Tsogyal’s Glorious Treasure of Great Bliss.

As it says in the root text, “May the face of the naturally occurring Primordial Wisdom Dakini be seen!”
