Brief commentary to the sadhana "Quick Path to Great Bliss"

Six classes on the commentary to Quick Path to Great Bliss
with Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab

Gen la Kelsang Khyenrab has agreed to sincere requests to provide a short series of six early morning classes in place of the regular group practice giving the essential points on how to engage in the extensive sadhana.

To practise the sadhana Quick Path to Great Bliss we must have first received the empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini and then study authentic instructions found in Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso's commentary The New Guide to Dakini Land.

The Quick Path to Great Bliss sadhana is suitable both for our regular daily practice and for retreat; and can be practised alone or in a group.

“In many respects the practice of Vajrayogini is ideally suited to the present day. By relying upon this practice sincerely, with a good heart and a mind of faith, it is definitely possible to attain full enlightenment; but to accomplish such results we must practise the extensive sadhana regularly.”
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

In these classes Gen-la Kelsang Khyenrab, Resident Teacher at Tara International Kadampa Retreat Centre, will provide a detailed and practical explanation of the two stages - generation stage and completion stage – showing how we can integrate these practices into our daily life, thereby transforming every moment of our life into the path to enlightenment.

Only those who have the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments of Heruka and Vajrayogini within Kadampa Buddhism may attend these classes

It is not necessary to bring implements to these classes and the prayers will be from Great Liberation of the Mother
