Khenpo Ugyen Wangchuk

The Red Vajrasattva practice has been held at Rigzdin Ling, with daily practice and a drubchen annually each year.  This year Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche was the Vajra Master.   Khenpo Ugyen Wangchuk, a scholar accomplished in the arts of the Vajrayana, was the skilled umze and, as in years before, patiently coached our chopens, musicians and other participants with humor, skill and precision.

This year’s practice was attended by several Chagdud Gonpa lamas and  marked with exceptionally strong signs of accomplishment, as well as abundant joy and good humor.
