Thanksgiving Retreat


With Loppon Jigme Rinpoche, 

Teachings on The Final Words of Gyurme Dorje (Nang Drak Rik Sum)

“Minling Terchen Gyurme Dorje’s final testament prayer, widely known as Nang Drak Rik Sum, is prayed at the end of every sadhana and meditation session throughout almost all Nyingma traditions. 

“This four line prayer entails the vast and profound meaning and practice of Buddha Dharma.  It contains the basis, path and fruition of the entire Vajrayana practice. To hear and meditate on this prayer for even a minute will shower blessings and awaken the mind. Such is the power of this precious prayer that has inspired and blessed immeasurable practitioners of our time.

“In tribute to the late Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, this Thanksgiving retreat will discuss this very precious prayer.” ---Loppön Jigme Rinpoche

Minling Terchen Gyurme Dorje, the founder of the great Nyingma Mindroling Monastery in 17th century Tibet, gave his final, essential advice in this extremely concise prayer just before passing into parinirvana.
