Vajrakilaya Bum

KPC is delighted to announce a three-day Vajrakilaya Bum with Lopon Pem on October 27, 28 and 29th.  

Vajrakilaya is the meditational deity who embodies the enlightened activity of all the Buddhas.  Intensely wrathful in appearance, his nature is compassion.  The practice of Vajrakilaya is famous for subjugating delusion and negativity in order to clear obstacles to spiritual practice.

Bum (pronounced “boom”), is a Tibetan word meaning 100,000.  In this three day retreat the sangha will accumulate 100,000, or one bum of the Vajrakilaya mantra.

All are welcome to participate.
