Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

In this six day practice retreat, Ven. Tenpa’i Gyaltsen will lead participants through the practice of the visualization and recitation of Heruka Vajrasattva. We will primarily focus on purifying all broken vows of the pratimoksha, bodhisattva and tantric precepts in order to strengthen our samaya with the Guru. We will also work to purify the subtle inner body of energetic channels.


This event is offered freely by the Suchandra Institute as part of our ongoing mission to bring the profound teachings of the Dzokden Dharma into the world as a cause for giving rise to a golden age of peace and harmony. 


2.672€ of 2.500€ raised

For this six day event, our venue is made possible due to the generosity of the Kalachakra Kalapa Center. In order to operate this retreat center, Kalapa needs to raise approximately 2500 € per month. Within a single 30 day month, this means roughly 85 € per day. Please help us to offset these costs by making a donation.

Our generosity-based model depends on your support to create the conditions for us to hold events and offer them freely to others. Any donations that we receive above the requested sponsorship goal will be donated to the Suchandra Annual Fund as support for future events, community projects and general organizational costs. Like this, we encourage you to give whatever you can so that we can continue to make the Dharma accessible to all.

If you would like to make offerings to Ven. Tenpa’i Gyaltsen who has kindly offered his time and knowledge to share the Dharma with us, then you can do so by donating here:

Ordained Sangha Fund

Our ordained sangha members serve the community by guiding practice groups, leading our volunteer staff and supporting the spiritual development of our members. With your generosity, we will be able to provide for all of the necessary costs such as food, shelter, health insurance, social insurance and other recurring monthly expenses.

It is our aspiration to be able to fully support one ordained sangha member for the next year. We estimate that we will need 12000€ to achieve this aim. If you are able to give, please support this fund.

Donation Total: 25,00€ One Time


During this retreat, we will need between 1-2 volunteers to support the retreat participants by cooking meals. If you would like to offer your time so that others can connect with the Dharma, please register below as a “VOLUNTEER”. We will then contact you directly by email to coordinate details.


Due to the pandemic, all in-person attendance has been cancelled.
