Rigdzin Dupa: The Gathering of Awareness Holders

Sunday, January 1, 10:30 AM. Rigdzin Dupa: The Gathering of Awareness Holders. A practice on the Inner Aspect of Guru Rinpoche.  Guru Rinpoche means the Precious Master in Tibetan. He is also known as Guru Padmasambhava, a manifestation of Amitabha Buddha. He was born from a Lotus Flower, in Oddiyana Lake amid wondrous signs. Due to his great realization and spiritual powers, he created the conditions for the propagation of Vajrayana teachings in this world. He is particularly powerful when negative emotions are stronger and confusion is greater. The more confusions and difficulties, the more powerful Guru Rinpoche is. Even great masters when faced with a crisis call upon him for help.

“Rigdzin Dupa, ‘The Gathering of Awareness Holders’, is a very powerful practice for dispelling obstacles and is one of the three root sadhanas in the Longchen Nyingthig tradition.” -Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche.

This practice is a tsog (or feast offering), so please bring a small food offering (already prepared), flowers and/or other offerings. For first-time visitors, this a longer practice (approximately 1.5 hours) that is held on Guru Rinpoche Day (the 10th day of the Tibetan calendar). If possible, please bring a device such as iPad/lap top/tablet…we will be sharing the text via Zoom for everyone. 


This event is over.
