  • Introduction to Heruka and Vajrayogini

    Tantra is a special inner science that teaches how we can change our mind, ourself and our life.

    The teachings of Highest Yoga Tantra are the most rare and precious within Buddhism. They show us how to overcome the limiting views of ourselves, others, and the world around us that give rise to fear, anxiety, and other painful thoughts, and give us perfect methods to access and fully actualize our inner potential so we can become the truly loving, compassionate, and wise person we wish to be. Tantra helps us create positive energy and wisdom through special meditations that lead us to enlightenment.

    The practices of Buddha Heruka and Buddha Vajrayogini are the Highest Yoga Tantra practices of Kadampa Buddhism.

    In this special two week series Gen Kelsang Thekchen will give an introduction to these Buddha’s and how to engage in their practices.


    Whilst continuing to stream, we are working to re-open the centre to allow in-person attendance to some classes in the safest way possible.  This will take us time and our startup will be a rolling start.  We will send out messages with any updates as we have them.  Please be sure you are on our emailing list to receive the updates.


    These two introductory classes are for those interested in the practice of Tantra and want to learn about the extraordinary benefits of Highest Yoga Tantra practice.  It’s a perfect preparation for the Heruka and Vajrayogini empowerments being given at this year’s summer festival.

    Also suitable for those already practicing Heruka and Vajrayogini, to become more inspired in your practice.
