Sidpa Gyalmo, the Queen of the Universe, is the chief protector of the Tibetan Bon tradition. Tempa Lama has been practicing Sidpa Gyalmo as his personal protector deity throughout his life. Many of his students have learned the healing practice, daily protector practice, and divination practice of Sidpa Gyalmo. During this weekend retreat Tempa Lama will teach and give transmission of the powerful longevity and prosperity practice of Sidpa Gyalmo.
