Garland of Jewels (Rinchen Trengwa) Part II
With Drubpön Lama Karma and Khandro Tsering Drolkar • December 7-22, 2018

The Garland of Jewels, or Rinchen Trengwa, tradition of Chöd practice holds a unique position in Machig Labdrön’s lineage of Chöd. At the time of the 3rd Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (1284-1339), Machig Labdrön’s lineage of Chöd had become extremely famous and was widely practiced. However, with the many contexts in which it was practiced, it was hard to distinguish the original heart of Chöd practice that wove together the Prajnaparamita tradition with the essence of the secret mantra generation and completion stages.

Rangjung Dorje preserved the authentic transmission of Machig Labdrön’s Chöd tradition through the Garland of Jewels, and now the living oral tradition of Machig’s Chöd is fully transmitted in its entirety at Tara Mandala. This retreat will be taught by Venerable Drubpön Lama Karma and Khandro Tsering Drolkar, both strongly connected to Lama Naljorpa and Terton Pedgyal Lingpa, the lineages at Tara Mandala, and sincere devotees to the Chöd practice. This retreat is the first of two this year covering the entire transmission of the Garland of Jewels, part II being offered in December.

Although Part I has already taken place (last January), this retreat is open to everyone, and Lama Karma will be giving transmission again, and it is an extremely rare opportunity to receive this living oral chöd lineage that comes directly from the primordial wisdom dakini Machig Labdrön.
