Definition of Drubchen:
A drubchen is a traditional form of meditation retreat in Tibetan Buddhism that lasts for about ten days. It involves a large number of lay and monastic practitioners and is led by at least one High Lama. It is regarded as a very powerful practice as prayer and mantra are recited 24 hours a day. It is said to act as a remedy to the negative forces at work in the world and to promote inner personal peace, peace within the community, and world peace.
Red Vajrasattva Drubchen:
Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche as a young boy studied with his father and learned his family’s tradition of religious rituals and liturgies, as well as traditional Tibetan medicine. After being imprisoned in Tibet for ten years, along with his root guru, Tulku Orgyan Chemchok, he spent fourteen years serving Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche at Shechen Gonpa in Nepal.
Guru Rinpoche said that for someone who engages in a group Drubchen (Great Accomplishment), the benefits are the same as practicing alone in a three-year retreat.
The treasure revealer, Padgyal Lingpa, formally recognized Sang-ngag Rinpoche and Chagdud Rinpoche as lineage holders and custodians of his own hidden treasure revelations. Red Vajrasattva is the heart-practice of these treasures of Padgyal Lingpa, specifically revealed for these difficult and distracting times.
These eight-days of Red Vajrasattva (2012) retreat will be a wonderful and effective way to bring benefit and happiness to oneself and others. This event will begin September 15th at 9:00 am and end on September 23rd at 1:00 pm. The empowerment will be given on the first day. It includes all meals and event fees from the September 15 breakfast through dinner on September 23.
