Tempa Lama will offer the teaching and transmission of Phowa practice. Phowa is the practice of transference of consciousness when an individual approaches death or has passed. It is a path of liberation traditionally used by great masters to liberate the consciousness of self and other at the moment of death. At the moment of death our body and consciousness separate. Through Phowa practice we help the consciousness of the deceased or dying person liberate. Phowa is also used to clear the causes of the six realms of existence, the karmic traces that bind us to the cyclic continuum of suffering, and to unify our mind with the primordial purity. Tempa Lama will give the teaching and instruction on how to practice Phowa and how to use it to clear karmic conditioning.

Tempa Lama encourages all his students to attend and learn this important practice.
