Please join us at WRC for the Ngöndro retreat over the weekend of May 15-17, 2020.

The Preliminary or Foundational Practices of Diamond Way Buddhism [Tib. Ngöndro] are profound and powerful means for affecting deep positive changes at every level of our being through purifying the negative karma and accumulating the good impressions and wisdom.
