Intro to Guru Yoga Mandala Offerings with Gen Kelsang Wangpo
A mandala offering is a traditional imagined offering whereby you envision the entire universe transformed into a Pure Land and then mentally offer this to the Buddhas. A beautiful practice, it is an extraordinary method for generating positive energy and good fortune. During a Guru Yoga Mandala Offering Retreat, there are four daily sessions, and each session includes chanted prayers and plenty of time to explore the practice of making mandala offerings. We will focus on two preliminary practices: Accumulating merit by making mandala offerings, and receiving powerful blessings by engaging in the Guru Yoga practice of Je Tsongkhapa.
