Mandarava Long Life Practice & Chudlen

Long life practices are especially important to co-ordinate and strengthen our energy, which result in a longer and more harmonious life.

“The practice of Mandarava is a path for having total realization and also relatively for having a longer life and prosperity. But the main point is to attain realization of the state of Mandarava. Mandarava is a totally realized being and so we follow this path.” Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

This practice is a discovered Terma of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu which he received during a series of dreams in the Maratika cave, Nepal and other locations.

Course Structure: First hour explanation; second hour practice: Long Mandarava with Chudlen. Later sessions may include a Tsalung or two.

Nina Robinson Nina Robinson was born in England in 1937. She met Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in 1980 and followed many of his teachings and practice retreats from that time until the present day.

Nina is authorized by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu to teach Mandarava and has led various retreats in many parts of the world.
