As the long retreat described in this text should only be attempted by those who have completed shorter
Vajrayogini retreats, we have restricted the use of this volume to those who
have, at the minimum, completed one 100,000-mantra nearing retreat for enabling
actions and its pacifying compensating fire offering ritual.
This volume is an important milestone in the
modern-day transmission of this cycle of teachings in the Gelug tradition. For
the first time, all of the indispensable materials needed to engage in the Vajrayogini
great retreat and its subsequent practices have been translated into English.
These materials include not only the retreat manual, which presents the instructions
on the various practices, but also all the essential ritual texts.
The profound practices in this volume are intended
for experienced practitioners of Vajrayogini Naro Khechari in the Gelug lineage
and should be engaged in under the direct guidance of a qualified Vajrayana
We dedicate this volume to the long life and fulfillment
of the wishes of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and all other teachers teaching
the pure path to enlightenment.
