The Drubcho of Vajra Kilaya (Putri Rekpung) that we are going to practice during
this retreat week was composed by His Holiness Düdjom Rinpoche and consists in
an intensive recitation of a text including numerous specific visualisations
(meditations) and their respective mantras. The retreat's participants
(experienced or beginner practitioners) will be guided through this complex
practice by Namkha Rinpoche and his assistant Lama Sonam Tashi.
This method allows to deepen and stabilize our capacity to practice in a
coordinated manner with the body, speech and mind, reaching hence a more
positive and beneficial state of mind. Vajra Kilaya is one of the main deities
used in Vajrayana practices in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. It is
said to be particularly effective to dispel obstacles, both in our daily life
and on our path towards enlightenment. The Drubchö consists of two main parts.
Firstly, the Lejang (or activity ritual) aims at cultivating the qualities of
enlightenment in the practitioners' mindstream. The second part, called Mele (or
lower activity) aims at liberating obstacles.
The rarity of the Masters who have the ability to transmit, teach and guide this
kind of practice makes this retreat an extraordinary event. Thus, Namkha
Rinpoche, disciple from Thinle Norbu Rinpoche and Semo Dechen Rinpoche (older
son and daughter of Düdjom Rinpoche) will allow each participant to benefit from
his incredible experience of this Vajra Kilaya Drubcho.
Teachings will be translated simultaneously in English, French and Spanish.
