The Eight Brothers of Zambala

Bring Prosperity and Health
Into Our Lives

November 6 – 8, 2020
Yeru Retreat Center


Murig Nyima Kunchap Rinpoche returns to Yeru Bön Center to teach the Eight Brothers of Zambala. This is going to be an exciting teaching on the God of Wealth, Arya Zambala and his 8 brothers (Ched Gyed).

The purpose of this teaching is to learn how to summon many kinds of fortune we need for ourselves and others in our lives. This will include cultivating well-being for ourselves and others, as well as learning to develop a successful spiritual practice.

GesheLa will show us how to perform Yang Drup rituals to reinforce and to increase well-being and prosperity.

Yang Drup means to have prosperity and good fortune.  Wealth, harmony, positive relationships, merit, health and positive opportunities.

These rituals strengthen the force of personal good fortune and good luck by both requesting the assistance of a wealth deity and by calling back any of this energetic force that might have become separated from the individual.

During this retreat, we will also include the making of wealth vases for students to bring back home with them.

Location: This weekend retreat will be held at the Yeru Retreat Center, nestled in the forest and alongside of Garuda Lake. Housing is available, but we expect this teaching to reach maximum housing, it would be a good idea to register early. The new housing has radiant heating, private indoor bathrooms and showers. Some, although they have radiant heating, will not have private bathrooms.

Cabins will be reserved as shared housing. Garuda’s nest will be remodeled by the end of spring and will be ready for beautiful conversations and meals.

We do our best to make sure everyone is comfortable during their stay at Yeru Retreat Center, we even love suggestions to help make Yeru Retreat Center even better. Yeru Retreat Center is in a forest. Garuda Lake is a private lake, calm and wide. Yeru Retreat Center has chosen not to create a “Five Star” venue, but to keep the natural beauty and elements. We know we don’t have to say this, but we thought it best to be sure you understand and we know you will do your part to check what you might need. Check the weather as you would with any other trip, dress accordingly. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Yeru Bon Center at yerubon@yeruboncenter.org. When registering, please let us know of any dietary restrictions, there is a space for this information when registering.
