Mandala Offering and Mandala Retreat

Saturday, April 19, 2008

I attended a mandala offering class conducted by Geshela Tenzin Zopa prior to the Mandala Retreat on April 6, 2008 from 3-9pm. On the day of the mandala retreat, we had more than 100 participants. It was very inspiring and meaningful retreat where I practised what I have learn in this merit accumulation mandala retreat. I truly enjoyed the retreat and what an experience. I will definitely participate in uture Mandala retreat. This picture are taken from Geshela Tenzin Blog taken by Ven Osel.

Commentary by Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche

Mandala offering is a powerful method for accumulating extensive merit in a short time. The Tibetan word for mandala is kyil.kor: kyil is essence, kor is taking—taking the essence. The term means taking the essence on the base of offering a mandala, and what you get from this is merit—the cause. Therefore the essence you take is the generation of the whole path, from guru devotion up to enlightenment, as well as the result, the unification of the dharmakaya and rupakaya. The cause is merit, the path; and the result is enlightenment. In other words, from this practice inconceivable temporal and ultimate happiness results. One is making unbelievable business with the merit field!
