NKT-IKBU Fall Festival
Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerments and Comm. to the practices of Heruka Body Mandala and Vajrayogini
Friday 7 - Thursday 13 October 2016


Highest Yoga Tantra is the supreme method for accomplishing the ultimate goal of human life - attaining enlightenment so that we can directly benefit each and every living being every day.

The gateway to the practice of Tantra is receiving a Tantric empowerment from a qualified Tantric Spiritual Guide. We then need to learn precisely how to practise Tantra and how to progress through the spiritual grounds and paths by depending upon Tantric practice.

This Festival will provide an opportunity to receive these Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments and to listen to a clear explanation of the practice directly from Gen-la Khyenrab.

For those who are new to Highest Yoga Tantra this Festival is the perfect starting point. And for those who already have the empowerments it is a perfect opportunity to refresh and progress your practice. It is necessary to attend all 3 days of Empowerments.

Venue: Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Toronto, Canada
