Ngondro Study Group

Open Dates
Padmasambhava Meditation Center or virtual meeting

The Ngondro practice, also known as the Preliminary Practice, is the basic foundation of the Vajrayana path.  Although technically called the preliminary practices, these practices actually contain the wisdom and skillful means for the entire Vajrayana path.  The practice of Ngondro can be undertaken daily, and consists of doing 100,000 accumulations of each section of the practice, beginning with the generation of Refuge and Bodhicitta. The ongoing study group is open to those students who have received transmission, or those who plan to receive transmission in the near future from Chhoje Rinpoche. When Rinpoche is travelling, the practice and study of the text will be led by long time, fellow student, Tara Roberts.  Tara will lead the group from the Padmasambhava Meditation Center in Denver when she is not travelling.  When she’s not in Denver, Tara is working on developing a virtual meeting place for this study group. Any student who wants to practice the text is welcome. For more information contact Tara Roberts at studentresources@pmctr.org
