Sangwa Yeshé Drubchöd

The Sangwa Yeshe Drubchöd has become an annual event since 2013 at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas as begun by vajra master, Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche. This week-long event draws students from around the world to take part in this traditional group formation prayer and ritual ceremony in the Namchak lineage.

For this year’s 5th Annual Drubchöd, beginning on June 2nd, 2017, our founder and teacher Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche as well as many Khenpos, tulkus, lamas, yogis and yoginis will come to the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas to preside over a Bodhicitta prayer festival and several extensive practices related to the dakini Sangwa Yeshé. We would like to extend our invitations to all who are interested in joining us in these practices in order to pacify all illness and violence in the world and spread peace and happiness to all. Buddhist practitioners are especially encouraged to attend enabling everyone to fully unfold the dual benefit of self and other.

You are invited to take part in this special 5th Annual Sangwa Yeshé Drubchöd Retreat at Ewam’s Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in Arlee, Montana. This profound practice is led by Vajra Master Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, Namchak Khenpo and other Lamas. It will be accomplished in four daily sessions taking place in front of the beautiful Yum Chenmo statue on the lovely grounds of the Garden. You will receive the requisite empowerment bestowed by Rinpoche at the beginning of the retreat.

An Explanation of Special Drubchöd Activities:

*June 3 and 7Pacifying Fire Puja and Delivering the Deceased: This puja is done for the sake of people and animals who have passed away. Through the power of sacred substances, mantra, and samadhi their negativity and obscurations can be purified and their consciousness delivered to the Pure Lands. In order to do this, we need a piece of the deceased’s bone, hair, or at least their name to use in the puja.

*June 5The Sixfold Chöd Puja: This practice is done in order to sever the continuity of chronic illness and clear away obstacles that deplete one’s life force. If the sick are able to attend the puja in person that’s the best, but if not one can provide some of their hair or nail clippings instead.

*June 6Magnetizing Fire Puja: This is done for the purpose of magnetizing resources and fulfilling one’s desires. It’s best if one can offer a red flower for the sake of this puja, but if not providing one’s name will also suffice.
