The Mother Tantra

Lama Sangye Monlam

June 24 - 27

The Mother Tantra’ is one of the main practices of our beloved founder Yongdzin Rinpoche.It is a key text in the Bon tradition and many of our core idea’s and practices are based on this tantra. Ma Gyud contains the six practices of ‘inner fire’, body offering, consciousness transference, dream yoga, sleep yoga, and intermediate state. Lama Sangye Monlam started to teach ‘The Mother Tantra’ for Shenten Dargye Ling in 2020, online. This is the second year of  the cycle and everyone is welcome.

Lama Sangye Monlam was a resident lama at Shenten before moving to Austria to become the head lama of the Austrian Bon center, Yeshe Sal Ling. Western students like to gather around him and enjoy his compassionate presence, simple manner, and yogic style of behaviour. Lama Sangye is a specialist in the tantric teachings, rituals, and ceremonies of Ma Gyud, the Mother Tantra.

Contribution for the teachings:

The participation's fee (offering) is 40 EUR. We think that such a contribution is affordable for most of the people and necessary to appreciate the teachings, maintain Shenten and repay our masters' generosity. However, we are aware that there might be some sincere and dedicated practitioners with financial difficulties who wish to participate and cannot afford it. If this is your case, please write to us at - and put the name of the retreat in the subject.

If you cannot participate in the LIVE sessions, you can watch the recordings (in English) later.  They will be available as soon as possible, often the same day in the evening, or in the following days.

How to pay:

ZOOM does not allow any other payment option than through PayPal. We rely on the automatic registration process because other ways require much more work. To those who do not want to or cannot pay through PayPal for any reason (but it is very easy to create an account there) we suggest you use a friend’s account (but please put your own email address, to get the link for streaming). In some countries, Paypal does offer a simple bank card payment without creating an account (you will be given the option when you proceed to the payment). If you cannot follow the suggested options and still want to take part, we will register you manually upon your payment through the bank transfer. Please, write to and we will guide you.

Dear friends, we look forward to meeting you soon!
