White Dakini Drubchen

With Drubpön Lama Karma and Lama Tsultrim Allione

August 8 - 19, 2018

Please choose below your Drubchen registration choice.

The annual Drubchen (Great Accomplishment Ceremony) of the White Dakini practice from Do Khyentse’s Dzinpa Rangdröl (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. We will experience a traditional empowerment 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. 

Please choose either to register for the introductory teachings and Drubchen (August 8-19), or you may register only for Drubchen (August 10-19).
