Yangphur Drubchöd & Empowerment with Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche 

November 29 – December 1, 2019 in Pema Khandro Ling – Santa Fe, NM  

For three days Rinpoche will lead the sangha in Namchak Tsasum Lingpa’s terma treasure “The Unsurpassable Union of Yangdak and Phurba” from the cycle “The Dark Red Amulet”.  This practice is traditionally performed during the time of Losar (Tibetan New Year) in order to avert obstacles, clear the path for auspicious new beginnings and create positive circumstances for the future.  This year the drubchöd will be held November 29 – December 1, 2019.  Yangphur, when performed together in a group, is particularly effective and beneficial. 

Each day of the drubchöd will include the sadhana of Yangphur, a tsog (feast offering), and dokpa (averting obstacles).  Rinpoche will bestow the Yangphur Empowerment at 7 pm on Friday, November 29th.  The drubchöd will conclude with Gu-Tor (torma burning ritual for averting negativity) in the afternoon on Sunday, December 1st at Mountain Retreat followed by dedication prayers at Pema Khandro Ling.

Journey to the Extraordinary

The Empowerments and Reading Transmissions by Rabjam Rinpoche on the Collected Works of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo at Ewam India

January 10 – 24, 2020

Upon the request of Gochen Tulku Namchak Sang-ngag Rinpoche, H.H. Kyabe Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche Gyurme Chokyi Senge has kindly accepted to bestow the rarely offered reading transmission (lung) of the entirety of the collected works of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo (Pema Osal Do-ngak Lingpa) and all the empowerments of the incredible Seven Modes of Transmission.

Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo (1820-1892), was a major treasure revealer—the last of the Five Sovereign Tertöns—and one of the most eminent masters of the nineteenth century. Recognized as the combined incarnation of Vimalamitra and King Trisong Deutsen. His direct previous incarnation was Jigme Lingpa. He studied with masters of every great authentic tradition. He mastered the complete and unbiased traditions of India and Tibet existing at that time which he passed on to his disciples.

Continuously giving transmissions, teachings and empowerments of the non-sectarian teachings of the Buddha; he became the founder of the Rime (non-sectarian) movement in Tibet. Not only did he possess infinite learning, he also developed unsurpassable qualities of experience and realization through perfecting the practice of meditation. Some of his subsequent reincarnations include Jamyang Khyentsé Chökyi Lodrö and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

These transmissions and empowerments are a once in a lifetime inconceivable opportunity in the original land of Buddhism, India; specifically Siliguri, West Bengal, the sacred landscape of the mahasiddhas . The event will be held at the newly built beautiful Ewam temple and Monastery. Accomodations will be at local hotels and guesthouses in and around Siliguri. There will be simulcast english translations via a radio frequency.

Coordinator person for westerners is James Curran who has information on accommodations, travel issues and obtaining an Indian visa. While there is no formal registration we do ask people to get on our attendance list so we can keep the organizing committee informed. There is no fee for this event; there will be ample opportunities to make personal offerings of your choosing. Please contact james@ewamshedra.org for more information.
