"Our precious Lama Tharchin Rinpoche established a one month Summer Retreat starting in 1989, calling it our “sangha dharma party”, and we have continued it without interruption to this day. Every year we do practices of the Three Roots deities and conclude with Drubchen (Great Accomplishment). These practices help to counteract negative circumstances for each practitioner, as well as those negative circumstances which cause so much hardship for the whole world, including disease, famine, war, conflict, and especially epidemic diseases like we are experiencing now." [Lama Sonam Rinpoche]

We will open our 2022 Summer Retreat with Vajrakilaya, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche's Putri Rekphung, “The Razor that Destroys at a Touch”.


“Vajrakilaya practice is extremely powerful in removing outer, inner, and secret obstacles on the Dharma path. Vajrakilaya is one of the main yidam practices in the Nyingma lineage and is the root of spiritual accomplishments (siddhis), swiftly bringing both ordinary and extraordinary accomplishments.” [Lama Tharchin Rinpoche]


Because of its power to remove obstacles, Vajrakilaya is traditionally practiced in the final days of the outgoing Tibetan year to cleanse and pacify all accumulated negativities, defilements and obstructions, in order to start the New Year afresh. It is usually part of our annual Gutor-Losar Retreat, but was not held this year due to the parinirvana of HH Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa.


"This Putri Rekphung Vajrakilaya practice from HH Dudjom Rinpoche's Mind Treasure (terma) is the most precious, and he himself said that it is the wisdom heart of Guru Rinpoche, Vimalamitra, and Balmo Shilamenju combined. Therefore, Rinpoche kept this practice secret for 11 years. This is the most powerful and direct lineage in our generation, that came from Yeshe Tsogyal to Dudjom Rinpoche, and then to us."  [Lama Sonam Rinpoche]


The retreat begins with a Putri Rekphung Vajrakilaya Empowerment (wang), given by Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche. You may attend the empowerment by streaming or in person simply for the blessings. To actually receive the empowerment as a gateway to the Vajrakilaya practice, you must attend in person.


Please register to attend in person or to receive the live streaming links. All donations help support Pema Osel Ling. If you are not able to pay at one of the suggested levels, please contact No one will be turned away from streaming the retreat for lack of funds.
