Join retreat program in the sacred asura cave of Pharping. Pharping is called  Yanglesho by Tibetans. The places where the blessed ones got enlightened  are filled with special high energy for meditation and it is a place where the great Buddhist master Padmasambhava also known as guru Rimpoche which means our beloved teacher got final enlightened around 8th century practicing Vishuddha Heruka combined with the sadhana of Vajra Kilaya at the upper cave of Yangleshö, also known as Asura Cave. Pharing these days has become famous for meditation tour and retreats.  There is a building where monks are sitting for three year closed retreat. Feel the Buddha energy of the cave. You will find no other places having vibration like here. Pharping is one hour drive distance from center of Kathmandu. Pharing is as holy as Bodhgaya. These are both navel world points where the humans are connected with divine energies.There are many monasteries in the outskirts which offer meditation retreats. People come to meditate and pay homage in Asura Cave. People come to hang Tibetan prayer flags called lugta to send good vibrations in the cosmos for the peace which is another attraction of pharping. The Bajra barahi temple is near the asura cave of pharping. On the upper left side of the entrance door is the imprint of a hand in the rock which makes you wonder could it be true? The place is just below the Asura Cave, sacred to followers of Padmasambhava since  last 35 years people around Pharping in the southern part of the Kathmandu Valley have noticed that an area of a cliff began to slowly bulge out. It began to look more and more like Tara, the female buddha. At the same time the form of Ganesh also appeared..Know about different aspects of Tara and be mesmerized by listening the chant of Buddhist monks in pharping.
