Yamantaka Solitary Hero Nearing Retreat with Burnt Offering 2019 2018-08-14T14:34:12+00:00

30th April – 19th May 2019 

with Venerable Thubten Wangchuk


Ven Wangchuk has kindly agreed to return to lead a third retreat in 2019. The retreat will comprise four sessions of the sadhana each day, complemented by a daily instruction session through which the whole practice will be gradually taught. Those who complete the mantra count will perform a burnt offering at the end of the retreat within Land of Joy’s grounds.

Ven Wangchuk has studied with many great masters of this and the previous generation, as well as having studied many commentaries. His teachings on the practice are clear and reliable.

This retreat is open to anyone who has received the Solitary Hero Yamantaka initiation.

Thubten Wangchuk was born in 1957 in Geneva, Switzerland. He met the Buddha Dharma in 1979 through attending the one-month November course at Kopan monastery in Nepal. After participating in a few more Kopan November courses and several group retreats in India and Nepal, he received monastic ordination from Kyabje Zopa Rinpoche in 1985 and lived a few more years in the East before joining Nalanda monastery in France in the late eighties to study with Khen Rinpoche Jampa Thegchok and Geshe Tashi Tsering. He’s currently focusing on his own retreats but is kindly taking the time to come to Land of Joy.
