with Gen Delek
This retreat is part of the Four Great Preliminary Guides series at KMC Fraser Valley. The four guides are going for refuge and generating bodhichitta, engaging in purification practice, accumulating merit and training in Guru Yoga.
The four preliminaries are like the four wheels of the car. If any of the wheels is missing, the car will not be able to function; and, in the same way, if any of the four preliminaries is missing, we will not be able to make progress in our spiritual practice.
During this retreat, we will get the second wheel on our vehicle: purification. Gen Delek will guide two sessions of retreat each day, a precious opportunity to gain experience of Vajrasattva purification practice. We will use the prayers Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land According to Highest Yoga Tantra available from Tharpa Publications here.
