About the Retreat

Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche compiled this 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deity practice based on a Karma Lingpa treasure, as a method for practitioners to achieve fully enlightened Buddhahood by removing obstacles to the path, through restoring all broken precepts, vows and tantric commitments. Included in this retreat is a Neydren ceremony to help sentient beings who have passed and are wandering in the bardo.


“Shitro is a special practice for all present and future bardos. In the bardo after death, when the body and mind separate, you will see the mandala of [100 Peaceful and Wrathful] deities in front of you. If you recognize them as your own wisdom phenomena you will wake up in the Pure Land. Shitro… brings great benefit to all sentient beings whether dead or living, and especially those who are directly connected with it through participation and sponsorship. It is especially good to dedicate to beings that have died. Because wisdom deity is non material wisdom and compassion… loved ones and all beings will receive benefit wherever they are, whether in the bardo or another life or realm. This wisdom and compassion pervades everything and everywhere like the sky. (Click here for Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's full words on the importance of Shitro practice.)


We will do a Neydren ceremony daily to help sentient beings who have passed and are wandering in the bardo. This ceremony is effective for beings who have died, no matter how long ago. Please submit names of deceased loved ones along with your offering. To make offerings and submit names for the Neydren Ceremony and Shitro Ngakso puja:
