Centuries-Old Tradition Flourishing in the West

Drubchö at Lotus Garden

Drubchö of Rigdzin Thugthig, Lotus Garden, 28-30 September

During the months of July through September, there was a downpour of blessings at Lotus Garden in the form of teachings, practices, and intensive training in the Tibetan language and ritual traditions of the Mindrolling lineage during the Mindrol Lekshey Summer Program.

Due to the tremendous kindness, vast vision and blessings of Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche, the Vajrayana Retreat drew to a close with Lotus Garden’s first full drubchö, or intensive practice, of the Rigdzin Thugthig sadhana–with Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche presiding as dorje lopön, Tulku Rinpoche as umdze, and Ven. Lama Thrinley Gyaltsen as head chopön. During this renowned Mindrolling ritual tradition, the sangha joyfully took part in 100,000 extensive feast offerings over three days, culminating on the auspicious Tse Chu, or Guru Rinpoche Day.

As the first drubchö of this caliber to take place in the West, history was surely made on this auspicious occasion.
