Longchen Nyingthig Ngondro at Kathok Gonpa

by admin 0 Comments

Ngondro (pronounced ‘nundro’) means preparatory practices. These practices prepare a student for Dzogpa Chenpo transmissions, for swift (three-month) accomplishment of shinĂ© single-pointedness, and for a three-year retreat to accomplish one’s Yidam (special tutelary deity) practice. The Longchen Nyingthig Ngondro is itself a complete path to enlightenment as well.

Ngondro is practiced Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM at Kathok Gonpa, as well as being the main practice of individual students. This involves at least the eventual completion of 100,000 repetitions of each of the following

Prostrations – bowing full-length on the floor to honor Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, Lama, Yidam, Dakini, Channels, Winds, Essences, and Awakening itself.

Taking Refuge Generating Bodhichitta, the heart of enlightenment
