Event Information

To participate in the Mahayoga Sadhana Retreat from home, follow these 3 steps:

1 ) Register above with your email address -There is no fee to register for the program but we are encouraged to make offerings. Please register by Aug 22th, 2022.

2 ) Make offerings for the tsok, click here -An important part of these practices is the feast offerings we make every day. This practice of "great giving without holding back" reverses our habitual self-centered psychology and can thus enable practitioners to overcome even our most tenacious obstacles. To cover the costs of hosting the practice from Pema Osel and for the tsok offerings we suggest a $25/day contribution. You can also make a prayer request here.

3 ) Get the Liturgies - If you are participating in the whole program, you will need the Chimé Pakmé Nyingtik (CPN), Rangjung Peme Nyingtik (RPN), and Riwo Sangchö texts, along with all inserts. These are all available as hard copies. Please read the following carefully, so you can make the best decision on what liturgies you might need and how to purchase them:

Note: You must be logged in as a Member on the MSB website to make any of the purchases outlined below.

Digital Pechas: The digital pechas for this program can be purchased and downloaded online here.

On the MSB Store, we have a new travel pecha that contains CPN, as well as other practices we don't do during this program and the Riwo Sangcho practice. You can order the white travel pecha here. Please order this by August 15, 2022 to receive it before the program begins.

Note: If you took part in the Mahayoga Sadhana Retreat in 2019 through 2021, you should buy the new white travel pecha containing the Chimé Pakmé Nyingtik and all the inserts that go with that practice. Rinpoche would like everyone to have the white travel pecha and no longer use the temporary ones we made for the last few years of this program.

For RPN, we are still using the purple book from Celebrating the Return! (Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche's visit in 2010). You can order this book here. The RPN practice will include certain sections of the CPN that are in the white travel pecha, so be sure to have a copy of that as well.
Also, you will need this supplementary insert document, which you can download here.

Riwo Sangcho:
On the RPN practice days, we do the Riwo Sangchö practice; the short liturgy is included in the white travel pecha.

How to participate in the practice from home, click here. The best way to participate in this program is to do every session. If that isn’t possible, one can do any number of full days of practice. However, since every day is a complete practice, do not plan on joining for assorted sessions here and there.

Orientation Meeting:
On Monday August 22rd at 8pm EDT, Joey Waxman lead a Zoom meeting to give participants some basic information on how to do these practices. You can view the recorded Zoom meeting by click on this link.
