Shambhala Kurukulla practitioners are warmly invited to join Walker Blaine for a five-class, in-depth exploration of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche’s Kurukulla Sadhana.

Much more than a review of the practice instructions, each class presents general information about vajrayana liturgical practice, then expands on the presentations in the Kurukulla Sadhana Practice Manual. This online offering is designed for people doing the Werma Sadhana as a first vajrayana sadhana practice, but it will be of interest to more seasoned sadhakas as well.

Short readings and practice assignments supplement each class. This series is suitable for individual study and for use at practice intensives.

Prerequisites: Participants must have received the Kurukulla abhisheka from Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche
