KHANDRO TSERING CHÖDRÖN’S ANNIVERSARY 24-26 May

KHANDRO TSERING CHÖDRÖN’S ANNIVERSARY

In Lerab Ling and Live Online

During three days, we will celebrate the extraordinary life of Khandro Tsering Chödrön with practice, offerings, videos and prayer. Lerab Ling will be streaming Yumka Dechen Gyalmo tsok during the day, and Tendrel Nyesel tsok in the evenings. 

The practice will be dedicated to the long life of Mayumla, to all the living teachers of the Dharma, and also to the prosperity of the Rigpa sangha, so that all Rigpa groups may overcome any financial difficulties they face and thrive in the future.

As many of you will know, there are many stories from Tibet and from when Tibetans arrived with nothing in India in the 1950’s of great tsok offerings being made to create auspicious conditions and prosperity and to overcome obstacles.

For this weekend we would like to encourage everyone to join in either by making generous offerings on your shrines at home or to make a contribution to centres where groups of practitioners can gather for tsok practice. And we’d like to ask you to contribute so that Lerab Ling can make a really abundant offering on your behalf in the place that Khandro Tsering Chödrön in the final years of her life called home.

Tuesday 24 May is the actual anniversary of Khandro Tsering Chödrön and Wednesday 25 May is a Dakini day.

Dates: 24 to 26 May
Event contribution: On donation basis. Minimum suggested 21€/ Day (does not include accommodation and meals)

You can find all the detailed practical information, such as check-in times, languages and transport by clicking on "Practical Info" anytime during registration. You can register and access all the practical information by clicking the button below.

OFFERINGS

You can also contribute to the generous practice offerings by making a donation online. You can dedicate your offering to removing obstacles for yourself or a loved one, accompany your donation with an aspiration prayer online, which will be included during the practices.

WHO CAN COME

This event is open to all Rigpa Mandala students, nevertheless to do the Sadhana, you need the respective empowerments. If you don’t have the empowerment, you can focus on your own personal practice, whilst enjoying the atmosphere and rejoicing in Khandro-la’s inspiring life story.

STUDY

You can support your practice by studying the Kyerim and Tendrel Nyesel section of A Guide to Vajrayana Practice for the Rigpa Sangha which is available on ZAM. This will help make your participation as meaningful as possible. Focus on:

  • The three samadhis
  • Teachings on the clear appearance, stable confidence and the recollection of purity
  • The four nails
