LTRDR.jpg

Drub Nyiy Döjö Gatsal is a Nyingma School of Vajrayana Buddhism Three-year retreat center in the Dudjom Tersar Lineage.  The center was established by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche in 1992.  The retreats have continued since then uninterruptedly .  After the passing into parinirvana of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche in 2013, the retreat was led by Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche under the guidance of Kyabje Dudjom Yangsi Rincpoche.  Since Lama Pema Dorje Rinpcohe's passing into parinirvana in 2018, Lama Sonam Rinpoche and Drubpon Pema Rigdzin have continued to lead under the guidance of Kyabje Dudjom Yangsi Rinpoche. 

 

The current retreat will be completed in October 2019 and a new one will follow in Ferbruary 2020

"...We are all connected within the same mandala, supporters and supported alike... Our merit, like a drop of water in the ocean, will always increase.. until we realize stainless enlightenment together." 

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

 

Due to the blessings of our sublime lineage lamas, our current three year retreat (drubdra) will conclude on Wednesday  October 23, Dakini Day. This drubdra has fulfilled the aspirations of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, under the guidance of Kyabje Dudjom Yangsi Sangye Pema Zhepa (Dudjom Rinpoche), with Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche, Lama Sonam Rinpoche and Druppon Pema Rigdzin (Freddie).

This meaningful event will be marked by the final fire offerings (jinseks) in a five-day cycle from October 18 to October 22 concluding on October 23 - Dakini Day. We invite you to make a connection and share in the blessings through sponsorship of these special jinseks.

Taking part in and/or sponsoring jinseks bestows many benefits. Lama Tharchin Rinpoche said, "This activity (pacifying jinsek) heals the imbalances of physical elements that result in sickness, removes negative energy, pacifies karmic defilements of countless lifetimes and liberates us from unwanted circumstances."

 

You may make offerings in your name and the names of loved ones and/or for special projects, events and aspirations. Your names will be read during the fire pujas and you and your loved ones will be remembered in all prayers. (Offerings over costs will go toward much-needed drubdra repairs).

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's Vision of the Three-Year Retreat: "In the west there are many Dharma practitioners and many teachers,  but I feel that the students lack a real overview of the body of the Dharma teachings from beginning to end.  In order to serve the Vajrayana teachings I would like to open the road to understanding Dharma in its entirety. Since I will be staying in America for a long time, I would like to provide an opportunity for those willing and able, to practice this path to completion. I hope some will be able to teach this doctrine themselves, thus preserving and advancing the Dharma in the west in its original, pristine form" (1997).
