Secret Guru Yoga is the third of Yuthok’s four guru yogas, known as the “Swift Liberation for the Fortunate Ones” and presents a complete Kyerim (creation stage) practice according to the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition.

Creation stage practices of the Anuttarayoga tantra Buddhist tradition train us to generate or "re-create" ourselves as the deity through visualization paired with meditation on emptiness and compassion. The result is purification of all inner and outer perceptions and recognition of our true essence.

On the first day of this retreat Dr. Nida will bestow the Yuthok Nyingthig Essential Empowerment required to do this practice. (This portion of the program will be offered as a standalone program for any sangha members not participating in the full retreat).

Pre-requisite: Seven days of Yuthok Nyingthig Ngöndro retreat, alone or in group. If you have completed or are practicing ngöndro in a different lineage, or have questions about pre-requisites please write to info@sowarigpainstitute.org.

Dr. Nida Chenagtsang

Born in Amdo, in Northeastern Tibet, Dr. Nida began his early studies of Sowa Rigpa at the local Tibetan medical hospital. Later, he was awarded a scholarship to enter the Lhasa Mentseekhang or Tibetan Medical University, where he completed his degree in 1996, with practical training at the Tibetan Medicine hospitals in Lhasa and Lhoka.Alongside his medical education, Dr. Nida trained in Vajrayana with teachers from every school of Tibetan Buddhism. In particular, he trained in the Longchen Nyingthig tradition of the Nyingma school with his root guru Ani Ngawang Gyaltsen and in the Dudjom Tersar tradition with Chönyi Rinpoche and Semo Dechen Yudrön. He received complete instruction in the Yuthok Nyingthig lineage, the unique spiritual tradition of Tibetan Medicine, from his teachers Khenpo Tsultrim Gyaltsen and Khenchen Troru Tsenam, and was requested to continue the Yuthok Nyingthig lineage by Jamyang Rinpoche of the Rebkong ngakpa and ngakma community.A well-known poet in his youth, Dr. Nida later published many articles and books on Sowa Rigpa and the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition in Tibetan and English, which have been translated into several languages. He has extensively researched ancient Tibetan healing methods, and has gained acclaim in East and West for his revival of little-known Tibetan external therapies.
