This series of practice events is open to Rigpa Dzogchen and Ngöndro Mandala students who know how to practise sadhana* and qualified Vajrayana students from other sanghas

Saturday 10 February - Losar Day practices - Year of the Wood Dragon
A special day for practice to create auspiciousness and celebrate the Tibetan New Year together with the sangha in Lerab Ling!

Lerab Ling will be hosting four of the most powerful practice events around Losar to remove the negativity of the old, and create the most auspicious circumstances for the new Tibetan year.

This series of drupchös, held by Rigpa students during the Losar period, is unique in the West. At this time, it is exceptionally important that we come together to uphold the Vajrayana practices and strengthen our resolve to progress on the path. This will support the harmony and flourishing of our sangha.

You can also make a meaningful connection with these practices by making an offering online dedicated to remove obstacles for yourself or a loved one. Your dedication will be included during the practices.


    - Having a firm grounding in the practice of Ngöndro, which includes having received all the Ngöndro teachings, up to and including guru yoga, as well as having accumulated at least 25% of the Ngöndro;
    - Having already received a Vajrayana empowerment from a qualified master and being committed to keeping the specific Vajrayana precepts;
    - Additionally, you have received instructions for sadhana practice, including a basic understanding of the view, meditation and conduct of the Vajrayana and its main key principles. This means you have either followed:

    - Rigpa's study and practice programme of the Vajrayana cycle from the three-year retreat, home retreat or Vajrayana online retreats streamed from Lerab Ling,
    - Or you received these instructions during previous drupchens with Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche,
    - Or you are a student from a sangha other than Rigpa and have received these instructions from a qualified Vajrayana teacher.


    A drupchö is a less elaborate form of a drupchen, which literally means ‘great accomplishment’ and comprises intensive group practice that brings together the depth, power, and precision of the Vajrayana, drawing together the entire range of its skilful methods. It is said that several days participating in a drupchö or drupchen can yield the same results as years of solitary retreat, and great contemporary masters such as Kyabjé Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche have made a point of encouraging and reviving the practice of drupchen, because of its power of transformation.


    You can also make a meaningful connection with these practices by making an offering online dedicated to remove obstacles for yourself or a loved one. Your dedication will be included during the practices.
