In this teaching, Rinpoche will present for the first time his new concise Kalachakra Sadhana called “Secret Dakini Treasure”. He composed this sadhana under very auspicious secret conditions. In order to make sure that the English translation would be in accord with the meaning, Rinpoche himself sketched an own English translation which was later on carefully developed and edited by the Dzokden Sangha.
This incredibly poetic practice text presents all the path until Enlightenment concisely. It focuses on the ultimate meaning of the different preliminary practices. Some sections which are extensive in the other Kalachakra Sadhanas are presented here very concisely, whereas others appear in a more comprehensive, non-traditional way.
The “Secret Dakini Treasure” is especially recommended for those practising wensum (Three Isolations) and the First Vajra Yoga. For this reason Rinpoche wishes that practitioners planning to attend the longer wensum retreats attend this transmission beforehand.
Who can attend?
1) All who have received the Four Higher Empowerments with Rinpoche or, if not:
2) Any stable Dharma practitioner who has done the Ngöndro extensively in any tradition and has the aspiration to receive the Higher Empowerments.
In both cases they should know quite well the Kalachakra sadhanas “The Divine Ladder” and “Enlightening the Heart”. To get to know Rinpoche’s flexible approach to the Ngöndro, look at the chapter 14 of “Unveiling Your Sacred Truth — Book 2”.
