Fri 12th – Sun 14th May, 2023
with Tromge Jigme Rinpoche
We are delighted to announce that Tromge 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.
This will be an in-person and live-stream event, but empowerment in the Dudjom Throma lineage is required. Empowerment will be offered, but only for those physically present for the event. If you do not have the empowerment and are unable to travel to PPI for the event, please do not sign up for online participation.
The practice of T’hroma contains the complete path of the Vajrayana, from ngondro (the preliminary practices) all the way through the Dzogchen (Great Perfection) practices of Trekchod and T’hogal. The T’hroma-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 T’hroma brings great benefit and blessings. Chöd is practiced 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 Tromge Jigme Rinpoche.
Children are very welcome at this event. Please notify us ahead of time if you plan to bring your children, so that we can work out the best housing and relaxation spaces for them — thank you! Note that adult supervision is required at all times for young children.
REGISTRATION will open by the end of February.
Friday – Sunday: 9am-12 noon, 3pm-6pm or later (all times Pacific Time Zone)
