Our Annual Summer Retreat starts on May 29, 2020, the seventh day of Saga Dawa, Buddha’s Birthday. We will begin by practicing Tsokye Tuktik (The Heart-Essence of the Lake-Born Vajra), doing a practice called Tseyang Khabtruk, a uniquely uplifting combination of long-life and wealth-gathering practices that has never been done before in the west.


H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche is Guru Rinpoche’s regent in our time; it is from the profound expanse of his wisdom mind that the Tsokye Tuktik cycle of practices was revealed. Tsokye Tuktik has the most extraordinary blessings of all Ladrup (Lama accomplishment) practices. The warm breath of the dakinis has not faded from it; there has been no chance for damaged samaya to interfere with it; it has extremely fresh wisdom blessings, and the flow of the river of its lineage blessings is uninterrupted.


The Tsokye Tuktik cycle contains outer, inner, secret, and innermost secret accomplishment practices of the Lama, Guru Rinpoche. The secret accomplishment practice of Tsokye Tuktik is a longevity practice with Guru Rinpoche in union with Mandarava, and we will practice it with the inner accomplishment practice, Orgyen Khandro Norlha, Guru Rinpoche in the form of a wealth deity.


Oral Transmission (Lung):
Lama Sonam Rinpoche will be giving the oral transmission (lung) for both the Khandro Norlha and the Tsokye Tuktik (Lake Born Vajra) sadhanas the first or second day and probably again on the last day. Rinpoche asks that everyone please stream the lung in real time, and not plan to receive its blessings from the recordings.



Lama Sonam Rinpoche and our staff have prepared an online, read-only digital text especially for this retreat. The text link will be sent to those who register. This text will not be available for purchase, but will allow participants to follow the practice in real time with easy page turning. If you would like to have your own copies of the texts:
