The yidam retreat is for those who have already attended Kyabje Bokar Rinpoche’s Yidam Seminar and are already doing the practice. (The specific practice done is not publicly announced to protect the samaya of the practitioners). Those who have done Bokar Rinpoche’s Mahamudra Seminar for five years and kept certain practice commitments are eligible to attend the Yidam Seminar to receive the empowerment. To date, this seminar has not been offered outside of India. We have some hope this can change in the future.
This gathering is an opportunity for these practitioners to gather and practice together, explore details of this practice, and resolve doubts. There will be reviews of the various levels of the sadhana and detailed instruction on the various aspects of the ritual, including the ganachakra.
