White Dakini Drubchen only (no teaching days)

With Lama Tsultrim Allione and Drubpön Lama Karma

August 7 - 16, 2017

The annual Drubchen (Great Accomplishment Ceremony) of the White Dakini practice from Do Khyentse’s Dzinpa Randröl (Self-Liberation from Fixation) treasure cycle will be performed at Tara Mandala. This lineage comes directly from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche to Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche to Lama Tsultrim Allione. This year we are pleased to announce that the Venerable Drüpon Lama Karma, a renowned retreat master throughout Bhutan, will lead the Drubchen as our Vajra Master. We will experience a traditional empowerment given by Lama Karma and we will be led through an in-depth process of learning and practicing the White Dakini mandala. This practice is the union of Machig Labdrön and Yeshe Tsogyel surrounded by the dakinis of the five families.
