A guided 3D2N mantra retreat to clear your obstacles & fulfil your wishes

A mantra retreat is where we set aside time to invest in our spiritual growth and focus on deeper practices. In the words of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche,

“It’s very beneficial for everyone to take a spiritual break once every few months to engage in a Dorje Shugden retreat. It gives us the opportunity to recharge ourselves spiritually and take a break from materialistic life.”

A Dorje Shugden mantra retreat can help you achieve many benefits including the clearing of obstacles, purification of negative karma, gathering of resources and fulfilment of wishes. You’ll also be blessed with wisdom, compassion, kindness, insight, clarity, understanding of Dharma, and ultimately get one step closer to developing his enlightened qualities.

Led by our experienced Buddhist pastors, this 3D2N Dorje Shugden mantra retreat is suitable for all who are new to mantra retreats as well as experienced retreatants who may be too busy to prepare all the necessary offerings and materials.

 

Who is Dorje Shugden?

Dorje Shugden is a Tibetan guardian deity who has swiftly helped many. Regarded as the ‘World Peace Protector’, many have testified to his swift and benevolent power as a healer, a provider of spiritual and material opportunities, a defender from negative elements and a source of bliss and harmony in the home.
