From Sept 24 - Oct 10, the Chokgyur Lingpa Foundation will be hosting the first of its two Sadhana Ritual courses, which will concentrate on the sadhana practice of Zabtik Drolma (The Profound Essence of Tara).The aim of the course is to provide students with an opportunity to learn in detail about both the meaning and practical aspects of Vajrayana ritual practice.
During the course, students will be instructed on the meaning of development stage practice in general and the visualisation stages of this sadhana in particular. Students will also be taught the different melodies and mudras for the practice; how to make the related tormas; play the vajra and bell; and how to act as the shrine master and chant master.
The teachings will be given in Tibetan by one of the senior monks of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling monastery and translated into English. Teachings will be held at Pal Kagyu Shedrup Tashi Dhargay Phuntsok Ling monastery (aka Riwoche monastery), Tinchuli, Kathmandu, which is just five minutes walk from the Boudhanath stupa.
Classes will be held for approximately five hours a day, five and a half days a week, and all of the participants will also have the chance to perform the practices together each day.At the beginning of the course, His Eminence Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche will kindly bestow upon all participants the necessary empowerment and oral transmissions.
