We are pleased to announce that the 2016 Bokar International Yidam Seminar will be held near Taipei, Taiwan. The seminar and the accompanying pilgrimage will be organized and hosted through the kindness and generosity of Ani Sonam and her dharma center.
This seminar offers access to the second phase of Bokar Rinpoche's Mahamudra Program and gives practitioners the opportunity to progressively engage in all the stages of yidam practice (deity meditation)— the signature meditation method of Vajrayana Buddhism. The instructions presented in these biennial seminars along with the program of personal practice create a firm foundation for effective practice of the outer, inner and secret levels of the meditation. We highly encourage any interested sangha who have met the criteria below to attend this year.
Our Taiwan hosts have asked us for a quick head count of folks who are “sure” or “almost sure” to attend the seminar and whether you will stay on for the pilgrimage offered. Please RSVP to Cathy Neumann by February 16th. Though some may need to leave prior to the pilgrimage, please note that, as in previous years, the pilgrimage is considered an integral part of the seminar.
