T’hroma Nagmo Drubchod 2019

T’hroma Nagmo Drubchod 2019

Fri May 3rd – Sun May 5th, 2019
with Jigme Tromge Rinpoche

Special Announcement: Jigme Rinpoche will be offering the extensive empowerment of this profound sadhana. We look forward to welcoming you to Ati Ling to share in this very special opportunity, whether this is your first visit or you have been here many times.

The practice of Throma contains the complete path of the Vajrayana, from ngondro (the preliminary practices) all the way through the Dzogchen (Great Perfection) practices of trekchod and thogal. The Throma-based practice of Chöd removes obstacles, both for our short-term happiness and those hindering our ultimate enlightenment. It carries extraordinary healing power and through its practice we can accumulate merit and wisdom in a vast and rapid way. Merely making a connection to Throma brings great benefit and blessings. Chod is practised daily in a number of Chagdud Gonpa centers, as His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche introduced it to many students on several continents, and we are fortunate that here at PPI-Ati Ling we too have been able to maintain this lineage under the guidance of Jigme Tromge Rinpoche.

We are delighted to announce that Jigme Rinpoche will serve as vajra master and umze for this event — simply to hear a true master sing this beautiful practice is a wonderful source of blessings, and we hope that as many people as possible will be able to participate, whether they are new to Tibetan Buddhism, or already familiar with sadhana practice.

Empowerment is required, and will be offered — if you do not have the empowerment for this practice, please contact us at events@atiling.org.

Children are most welcome to attend this retreat — please contact us if you have any questions about bringing your child. While young children must be supervised at all times, we do have suitable facilities where all the children can gather, both inside and outside the shrine-room.

COSTS: Per person for entire retreat.
