About the Vajra Dance
The Vajra Dance is a meditation practice integrating movement and sound. Its principle is to harmonise and coordinate our energy and integrate all experiences related to our three existences of Body Speech and Mind into the state of contemplation. The Dance takes place on a large Mandala of approximately 100 sq.m representing the correspondence between the inner and outer dimensions of our existence.
The Vajra Dance is connected to the ancient Dzogchen tradition of Oddiyana and inseparably linked to the transmission of the Dzogchen Teachings. The Tantra, “The Vajra Dance liberating the Six Classes of Beings into the Six Pure Dimensions” is a Terma from the Tibetan Dzogchen Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
