Gutor, Vajrakilaya Year End Reversing Practices


  • Academy of Mantric Disciplines 119 Roosevelt Drive Poughquag, NY, 12570 United States (map)

Once again a new lunar year is upon us and all the wonderful choices and opportunities that come with it.

Like a dream, each year leaves a trail of what was and the chance for something new to come into play.

In Vajrayana Buddhism we use this opportunity to reverse the old negative patterns and residues that could bleed into the new year so we can start with a clean slate and enhance all good and positive qualities within us and for the well-being of all. An intensive practice of Vajrakilaya, reversing of negativity, along with the practice of Singhamuhkha (the Lion Headed Dakini) along with supplication of protectors, can help us remove negative gross and subtle patterns, paving the way for good fortune in the coming year of the Earth Dog.
