Ma Gyud mandala

Registration is now open for the coming Second Year of the Three Year Residential Retreat.

Ma Gyud is one of the major tantric cycles in the Bon tradition. Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche has taught this cycle over the past 20 years. During the second year of the 3 years programme at Lishu Institute, the Ma Gyud teachings will be given. This is a great opportunity to learn or deepen your knowledge and practice within an intensive residential year study.

Ma Gyud Sangye Gyud Sum, is a teaching coming directly from Dharmakaya Kuntu Zangpo, the primordial Buddha, who transmitted this teaching to many of his celestial entourage, among them the Great Godess Zangza Ringtsun.

Lishu Institute founded by Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche was established to help preserve the ancient spiritual tradition and culture of Bon. Well before the emergence of Tibetan Buddhism, Bon flourished in Tibet and other regions of early Central Asia. It came close to extinction during the Chinese Cultural Revolution, but through the extraordinary efforts of Tibetan teachers and the dedication of both Eastern and Western supporters it continues to survive today as an unbroken lineage and living spiritual tradition.
