The practice of Phowa is designed to release and liberate duality conceptions into wisdom awareness. Phowa is so profound, direct, and swift that if we apply this technique at the time of death, we can achieve buddhahood, even if we haven’t had the time or ability to meditate very much during our lifetime. Without any other meditation, this practice leads directly to realization. In brief, Phowa is the Vajrayana technique for transferring your consciousness to the pure land of Amitabha at the moment of death. Once you reach this pure land, you will unfailingly proceed through the stages of the path until you reach full enlightenment.Find out more »

Kama is the distant oral transmission lineage that contains the essential practice aspect of all the Sutra and Tantra teachings of the Buddha. The close lineage of terma, or “hidden treasures” is the extraordinary legacy of Guru Padmasambhava, which includes secret teachings that were concealed in the earth, and even in the mindstreams of his disciples. Termas are revealed at a later prophesied time by destined practitioners known as tertons, who are reincarnations of the 25 principal disciples of Guru Padmasambhava. The terma lineage preserves the teaching and keeps the blessings fresh and intact for future generations.Find out more »
