Tues 7th – Sat 11th July
Last day is Saturday 11th July, with just ONE thun.
Start time: 8am
End time: 1pm
The full drubchen is cancelled, but we will instead do a drubchod, which complements the extensive Rigdzin Dupa longevity practices undertaken by Rinpoche and sangha earlier this year in Nepal. PPI residents will participate in person as usual, and a Youtube channel will be available for off-site participants.
There is no charge for this event. Offerings can be made online as usual.
The empowerment will NOT be offered this year. The retreat is only open to those who have already received the Rigdzin Dupa empowerment from Tromge Jigme Rinpoche. Due to COVID, this will be an online-only event.
Pre-registration is required — register below.
IF YOU ARE REGISTERING LATE, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE PREPARING OR IN PUJA, AND WE MAY NOT BE ABLE TO SEND YOU THE PASSWORD INSTANTLY. We will get to it as soon as possible, after checking you have the empowerment. Please don’t email. We can see your registration. Thank you.

Note: PPI has been unable to host rental groups since the start of the shut-down, and bookings continue to be tenuous for the coming months. Although the extra time has been valuable for us to work on the property, the loss of rental income (and lack of federal/state support for nonprofits like us) is hitting hard. We are very grateful for any donations large or small, one-time or ongoing, that you make to help the center through these times. Thank you! Click here to support PPI
