Drub Nyiy Döjö Gatsal Three-Year Retreat

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. 

 

 

Due to the blessings of our sublime lineage lamas, our three year retreat (drubdra) has concluded October 2019. It has fulfilled the aspirations of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche (1936-2013), under the guidance of Kyabje Dudjom Yangsi Sangye Pema Zhepa, with Lama Pema Dorje Rinpoche (1942-2018), Lama Sonam Rinpoche and Drubpon Pema Rigdzin (Freddie).

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).
