2015 - 11 - 13/15 - München - Ngakma Nor'dzin Pamo and Ngakpa 'ö-Dzin Tridral - Wearing the Body of Visions

An exploration of the Path of Transformation through symbol, visualisation, song and chant

Weekend event with Nor´dzin Pamo and ´ö-Dzin Tridral

Shambhala Zentrum München, Montenstraße 9, München, Germany

13th to 15th of November 2015
Friday 19:00 - 20:30, Saturday 10:00 - 19:00, Sunday 10:00-13:00

Enlightened Symbolism

The enlightened symbolism of Tantra functions as an inspiration and also as a direct communication to Awakened Mind. As beings caught up in the illusion of duality, we are symbols of our true enlightened selves. Because of this, tantric symbolism functions as a powerful method by which we can transform our experience to reveal our true nature through ‘wearing’ the visionary body of the yidam (meditational deity).

Ngakma Nor’dzin and Ngakpa ’ö-Dzin are a married teaching couple with over thirty years of practice experience. They will introduce different kinds of yidams (peaceful, joyous, and wrathful) and talk about the ways in which they function as a focus of practice.

Methods of Practice

The weekend will include teaching, yogic song and chant, and an introduction to the powerful practice of envisionment (self-arising as the yidam). It will include methods of practice that allow us to experience emptiness, the space from which the experience of vision arises. Through vajra pride we can bring enlightened awareness into our experience of everyday life. Questions are warmly welcomed throughout the weekend.


The weekend will include an empowerment (tantric initiation) into the practice of Yeshé Tsogyel, the female tantric Buddha of Tibet and the main yidam of the Aro gTér Lineage.

Cost: 130.- EUR for the whole weekend, Friday evening 30.- EUR. Reduced fee possible on request and for apprentices of the Aro gTér lineage.
