Gen Kelsang Jigme is the Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre.
Ordained as a monk in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance in major Kadampa Centres throughout the UK for many years. He shows a humble, kind example as a practitioner and his clear explanations of Buddha’s teachings give us the confidence to practise them in our daily life.

Quick Path to Great Bliss Retreat

with Gen Kelsang Jigme

January 5-12

Please note: to engage in this retreat it’s necessary to have received the Highest Yoga Tantra empowerments of Heruka & Vajrayogini within the New Kadampa Tradition.

Join us for this one-week, guided retreat on Quick Path to Great Bliss, the extensive Vajrayogini self-generation sadhana.  This is a fantastic opportunity to gain familiarity with our essential daily Highest Yoga Tantra practice.  Each session will focus on a different meditation from the Eleven Yogas of Naropa as explained in The New Guide to Dakini Land.

To gain the most benefit from this retreat it would be a very good idea to read The New Guide to Dakini Land in preparation.
