The Ngondro Practice of Prostrations and Refuge - in-person only


Teacher: Lama Gelongma Zangmo

Enquiry Form


The Ngondro is a practice text by the 9th Karmapa, Wangchuk Dorje, consisting of the four ordinary foundations and the four special foundations.

The function of the Ngondro is to help us appreciate the importance of Dharma practice, and is a method to practice purification and accumulation of merit. 

Lama Zangmo will give instructions on how to start the first of the special foundations, the refuge and prostrations. One of the functions of the prostrations is to deepen one's connection to the sources of refuge, the Three Jewels.

This course is only suitable for those who have taken REFUGE and who wish to start the practice of one hundred thousand full length prostrations. Please note that the October session is a follow up to the instructions given on 25 Sept and cannot be attended on its own. 

For any questions, please contact the office or make an appointment to speak to Lama Zangmo. You will need to bring a Ngondro text to the teachings. (available from the shop).

If there is enough interest Lama Zangmo will start a monthly Ngondro prostration group where she will gradually go through the text and with time for people to practice together in a group
