We are pleased to announce that this summer Anyen Rinpoche and Allison Zangmo will preside over our annual Rigdzin Dupa Drupchen at Orgyen Khamdroling Dharma Center. Our sangha welcomes you for eight days of intensive practice and teachings on Rigdzin Dupa. Rigdzin Dupa, or “Gathering of Vidyadharas,” is a Longchen Nyingthig lineage practice which enables us to directly receive the blessings of Padmasambhava. Since the 2017 Drupchen , the sangha has been working extremely hard at mastering all of the skills needed to make the Drupchen a very special experience for everyone. We invite you to attend this very special retreat at our beautiful center in downtown Denver.
Sunday, August 1- Sunday August 8th
Denver, CO, in person only
*Note: you must arrive to Denver on Saturday before the program begins and not plan to travel home until after 3pm on the concluding day, Sunday the 8th. All days and practice sessions must be attended to join this program. *
The tradition of gathering vajra brothers and sisters together to practice in the style of a drubchen is unique to the Secret Mantrayana tradition. At a drubchen, a large number of lay and monastic Mantrayana practitioners gather together for a week or more to focus on reciting, practicing, and accomplishing one specific practice. This style of practice is said to be intensely more beneficial for a Mantrayana sangha than practicing alone. Traditionally, it is said not only to raise the blessings and realization of the sangha, but also said to promote peace within the local and global community, and act as a counter to negative forces and agitating energy.
