October 14 - 16
Merigar East Gompa
We are inviting all, having transmission from Chogyal Namkhai Norbu people, for participation in a retreat of Dakini Simhamukha.
Simhamukha usually is translated into English as Lion-Faced Dakini.
This dakini and female tantric Buddha is regarded as one of the principal wrathful manifestations of Padmasambhava (Guru Rinpoche). As such, she is connected with many ceremonies of the Dzogchen tradition.
Although Simhamukha is a Dakini in her aspect, she functions as a Yidam or meditation deity and her special functions are averting and repulsing (bzlog-pa) psychic attacks that may assault the practitioner and the subduing of negative female energy as personified by Mamos.
For any questions please, contact us.
