Yangzab Three Roots Empowerment:
Gateway to Yangzab Treasure Teaching Cycle
The Yangzab Three Roots Empowerment is one of the most important empowerment's in the Yangzab Dzogchen Treasure Teaching Lineage which was revealed by Drikung Rinchen Phuntsok and is held by the Drikung Kagyu Lineage. The Three Roots in this practice are Dharmakaya Guru Rinpoche/Yeshe Tsogyal, Hayagriva and Vajravarahi. One of the special features of this practice is that the Lama, Yidam and Dakini can all be accomplished within one practice. Drikung Rinchen Phuntsok revealed this practice as part of an extensive treasure teaching cycle known as the Yangzab Terma Teachings. This treasure was revealed as an earth treasure and contains an extensive array of practices. Drikung Rinchen Phuntsok also received a Pure Vision where he was taken to Guru Rinpoches Copper Covered Mountain Pureland where the empowerment of the Three Roots was bestowed upon him personally by Guru Rinpoche. This practice contains great blessing and is very powerful in these degenerate times. Don't miss this special opportunity to enter into the full mandala of the Yangzab Dzogchen Treasure Teachings.

Completion Stage Hevajra Empowerment
Hevajra is a wrathful emanation of the Buddha Abshokya. It was one of the primary practices of Marpa and is the central practice for the Sakya school of Tibetan Buddhism. It is an Anutara Yoga practice. It is in the practice cycle of Hevajra that the practice of Tummo or "inner heat" first appears. This is one of the more important empowerments within the Vajrayana and is rarely given. Drupon Thinley Nyingpo has received this empowerment as well as extensive Hevajra Teachings from H.H. Chetsang Rinpoche, head of the Drikung Kagyu traditions as well as from other highly accomplished teachers. The empowerment and sadhana come from a collection of four key annutarayoga tantra deities (Guhyasamaja, Cakrasamvara, Hevajra, and Kalacakra) put together by the Drigung Kagyu master Rigdzin Chokyi Dragpa, entitled the Perfect Yoga.

Hevajra Completion Stage Teachings
The practice of Hevajra, is one of the most important mother tantra practices. It has been practiced both widely in India and Tibet by many Mahasiddhas and continues to be practiced to this very day. The empowerment and sadhana come from a collection of four key annutarayoga tantra deities (Guhyasamaja, Chakrasamvara, Hevajra, and Kalacakra) put together by the Drigung Kagyu master Rigdzin Chokyi Dragpa. Teachings will include from the Four Coemergent Deities Completion Stage text which contains the essence Completion Stage Teachings that goes with the concise Two-Arm Hevajra Text which has been translated and will be available.
The Completion Stage text text by Rigdzin Chökyi Dragpa was designed specifically to compliment the generation stage sadhana of Hevajra with the Hevajra Completion Stage Practices. These teachings include very important profound yet practical teachings on the Completion Stage including practices on the Tsa, Lung, Tigle and Tummo practice. The teachings on this text will be a rare opportunity to receive pith instructions on the heart of the ancient Vajrayana practices of theHevajra Completion Stage Practices. His Holiness Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche says that the revitalization of the Hevajra tradition in the Drigung Kagyü is one of his main priorities in this lifetime. This is a rare opportunity not to be missed and will complete the cycle of Completions Stage Teachings that Drupon Thinley Ningpo Has been giving at the DDCV over the last two years
