Dorje Drolo Trekchod Teachings and Practice

Text List 


Every year we have Trekchod retreat. From Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche continued the teachings every year.  Due to his parinirvana, Lama Sonam Rinpoche will give the teachings this year. He has chosen to give Trekchod meditation instruction from His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche's Dorje Drolo cycle, as they are the essence of many different teachings that are particularly appropriate for these degeneration times.


Lama Tharchin Rinpoche gave Dorje Drolo Trekchod teachings many years ago and Kyabje Dudjom (Yangsi) Rinpoche gave the complete Dorje Drolo empowerment this year. Lama Sonam Rinpoche thinks now is the proper time for this very special teaching: “All practitioners need to have this kind of practice to prevent obstacles. It is very necessary. The best medicine solution for degenerate times is Dzogchen practice.”


Lama Sonam Rinpoche will give group teachings, and students will have extensive time for practice and opportunity for private instruction, if desired. Limited private rooms on first-come, first-served basis. Now is the time to put Trekchod into practice! 


This retreat is for experienced practitioners. Students must have completed Ngondo and Rushen practices. Please contact the office if you have a question about your qualifications.
