Guru Rinpoche Drubcho

Enquiry Form


Guru Rinpoche, otherwise known as Padmasambhava, was pivotal in bringing Vajrayana Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th century. He helped to establish Samye Tibet's first monastery which then became an important base from which much of the Buddha's teachings were translated from Sanskrit to Tibetan by learned translators. He is considered, by Tibetans, to be the second Buddha due to the importance of his activities.

Another way of relating to Guru Rinpoche is as a guiding power which emanates from pure mind, anywhere in time and space: the universal teacher. The dialogue between disciple and guru is really the age-old interplay of illusion and truth, darkness and light, the relative and the ultimate. Guru Rinpoche is the archetypal perfect teacher: a role model.

Join Choje Lama Yeshe Losal Rinpoche and the KSDL Sangha for the Guru Rinpoche Drubcho which is said to help overcome external and environmental obstacles and inner mental obstacles. Lama Rinpoche will join us for the last few days of the Drubcho.

This practice involves many prayers, music and mantra recitations as well as offerings of Tsok.

Please bring food as an offering for the Tsok.
