We are utterly happy to announce that in the upcoming year Gomde we will host a closed, 31 day long winter Retreat in Gomde.

In accordance with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoches wishes and advice, Gomde is holding a series of retreats on guru, yidam and dakini practices. This past summer Rinpoche decided that the next retreat should be the yidam practice of Vajrakilaya, in order clear away any obstacles and hindrances one faces while practicing the path. It is also an utterly precious opportunity to contribute to the prosperity of our mandala and all of Rinpoche's activities.

Vajrakilaya is a wrathful manifestation of enlightened activity. The practice of this yidam deity dispels inner and outer obstacles, especially those hindering our Dharma practice. Vajrakilaya annihilates negativity and afflictions.

If you have the time, we highly recommend to use this opportunity! Conditions are excellent.
For the past few years Gomde has been working torwards creating the perfect conditions for retreats. We are happy to share that through this efforts, retreatans will now be able to:
stay in 35 comfortabe single rooms
20 of them with bathroom and showers
have all kinds of needed infrastructure on sight
enjoy the quite and enchanting atmosphere of Austrian winters while keeping warm and cosy in a house filled with the blessing of many years of practice

Experience in Vajrayana practice, especially Sadhana practice, one Sadhana needs to be able to practice by oneself
Vajrakilaya empowerment given by a qualified master
Taking part in the retreat is only possible
electronic devices should not be used during the seminar

scheduel: 4 practice sessions daily, group and individual practice in the room, Tsok on special occacions

Last but not least, we want to point out Lama Tenzin Sangpo's excellent abilities for leading a retreat of this kind. He has completed his 3 year retreat at the sacred grounds of Pharping, where Guru Rinpoche has fully realized Vajrakilaya.
Anyone who is sincerly interested in Dharma practice and in learning the details of ritual and sadhana practice will have a very well-studied and experienced guide who has gathered all the necessary knowledge throughout his life. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated and serious lama guiding this retreat.
