This tutorial of the Dance of the Three Vajras reflects our current understanding of

courses with qualified instructors.
The Dance of the Three Vajra’s can be integrated within any spiritual path and can also be
practiced by those who have not received direct transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
