During this 8-day retreat, Tulku Jamyang Rinpoche & Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche will lead participants in the Concise Troma Sadhana practice and the Troma Ngondro (Preliminary Practices). Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche will also give question and answer teachings. On the last day, we will practice the Intermediate Length Troma Sadhana.


In Lama Sonam Rinpoche's words:

"This year during Summer Retreat we will practice Tröma Nagmo from Traktung Dudjom Lingpa’s pure vision treasure revelation Chönyi Namkhay Longdzö, The Treasury of the Expanse of the Sky of Dharmata: The Profound Heart-Essence of Mahasiddha Saraha, Pith Instructions for Severing Attachment and Expectations and Recognizing the Natural State of One’s Own Mind.


"In the vajra speech of the root text it says, 

I, Saraha, the Lord of Siddhas,

Keeper of the secret treasury of the dakinis,

Entrust this most essential heart essence,

Which is only for a few fortunate disciples,

To you, Great Traktung.


"Thus, the Great Treasure Revealer himself, in the all-encompassing completely pure wisdom display of his own phenomena, saw that the embodiment of the hundred Mahasiddhas, Glorious Saraha, and the Lake-Born Vajra Samantabhadra, Guru Rinpoche, were but different illusory dance expressions of one single wisdom. He saw them directly and actually received their blessings, and they gave him teachings through symbolic indications. Through that, the treasure box of the profound expanse of the sky-treasury of the nature of phenomena was opened through the magic of self-manifesting wisdom-awareness, and great treasure revelations welled forth inexhaustibly from his wisdom mind.


"This is the distilled essence of all of them; it is deceitless in its teachings on how to accomplish all activities and siddhis, and it is complete with all the key points of the paths of the teachings on the transcendent perfections and the practices of severance (Tib. gcod) found in Guru Padmasambhava’s treasures. Through this practice we can accomplish the Great Transference Rainbow Body in this very lifetime, just as thirteen of Dudjom Lingpa’s disciples did, and just as followers of this lineage continue to do up until now.


I, Saraha, the Lord of Siddhas,

Have placed this condensed heart essence

As a glorious protection for sentient beings in the degenerate age.

Those who have the karma to reach for the state of lasting happiness

Will receive the blessings of the profound wisdom mind lineage.

There is no doubt that they will accomplish Buddhahood in one lifetime.


"Dudjom Lingpa said, 'I practiced diligently for one lifetime and actually reached the supreme state of Buddha Vajradhara. This is my final advice for my beloved lineage holders: practice correctly, my fortunate sons.'”



While Troma Ngondro is generally undertaken only after completion of the Dudjom Tersar or other general Ngondro, students who have an interest in the Troma Cycle, or in Dzogchen in general, were urged to attend the retreat. There was no specific practice commitment for students who receive the Oral Transmission and teachings during this Troma Retreat.
