    at the recent Barchey Kunsel empowerments in Nepal we were given the samaya of a daily practice and also a protector practice.

    i am wondering what to do if I was attending a retreat such as a Tara retreat at Gomde centre, should I also try to fit in the daily practice as well as the retreat program. Or does the retreat sadhanas suffice, the protector practice is not so much a problem and can be done easily.

    Dear Phillip,

    Tara’s Triple Excellence is from a different practice cycle than the Tukdrub Barchey Kunsel, which means the samayas are not quite the same. However, Rinpoche has explained before that in order to keep the samayas we received at these empowerments, we do not necessarily need to do either the protector practice or the Concise Manual for Daily practice on a daily basis. Once a week, for example, would still maintain the continuity of practice.

    I hope this helps to answer your question.
