"The samaya of body involves always regarding one's basic phenomenal situation as an expression of sacredness. We do not doubt the sacredness of our world. The samaya of speech involves also regarding any occurrence-- anything that comes up in our experience-- as sacred. This could be either internal or external occurrence, so that any subconscious gossi8p or emotional upheaval is included here. The samaya of mind is connected with the indestructible wakefulness of the vajra mandala-- in this case the mandala of Vajrayogini. Even the hint or possibility of neurosis is unable to enter into one's state of being because the whole world is seen as part of the mandala of sacredness that one has entered."
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
"Sacred Outlook: The Practice of Vajrayogini"
During our annual Vajrayogini Drupchen participants engage the full sadhana of Vajrayogini on a daily basis. We do 6 sessions continuing the practice through the night (Participation in sessions 5 and 6 is voluntary!) Short feasts are held everyday. The full self abhiseka is held on Friday and Saturday before opening the retreat on Sunday.
Participants get to explore the full sadhana practice in the context of a closed retreat situation. Functional talking is observed throughout. We do not allow participants to use electronic devices while in retreat or to leave the retreat boundaries.
The emphasis is on practice but we review the Vidyadhara's Tris during the daily feasts.
Participants need the following prerequisites to enter this retreat:
They must have received the Abhiseka from a qualified Lama
They must have completed their full kagyu ngondro by number
They must have a be students of the Vidyadhara Trungpa Rinpoche and the Vajra Regent (either directly or by studying their teachings.
They must have a personal commitment to maintain their samaya to this lineage.
