Keajra Heaven

The short but essential commentary by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso that explains clearly how we can practise the sadhana or ritual prayer The Uncommon Yoga of Inconceivability. This is a special method, unique to the practice of Vajrayogini, whereby we can attain the Pure Land of Keajra or Dakini Land, the Pure Land of Buddha Heruka and Buddha Vajrayogini, within this life without abandoning our present body.
