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.

Red Tara Statue at Dechen Ling

Red Tara

This statue of Red Tara, one of the first sculptures made in the West by Chagdud Rinpoche, sits in the shrine room of Dechen Ling, in Cottage Grove, Oregon, the first Chagdud Gonpa center outside of Tibet, and Rinpoche’s home for many years.

Khyentse Rinpoche with Chagdud Tulku and Lama Sonam in France

Almost twenty years to the day that Chagdud Rinpoche, Lama Sonam, and a  group of students met and received teachings from Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and a hundred years after Khyentse’s birth, his young incarnation returned to America, giving teachings, blessings and empowerments to old and new friends.

After visits to New York City and Vermont, Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche came to Boulder, Colorado,  and Phuntsok Choling, the nearby retreat center of Mangala Shri Bhuti.

At the Boulder Theater, Mattieu Ricard introduced a film on Dilgo Khyentse, “Brilliant Moon”, in the afternoon, and in the evening, Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche gave the Pema Tse Nyingtik Longevity Empowerment.

The annual Rigdzin Dupa retreat, the “Gathering of theVidyadharas”, (a terma of Jigme Lingpa) took place in the “new” shrine room at PPIAti Ling this year.  As yet unfinished, and without windows or doors, it is open to the fresh summer breezes from the ocean nearby.  We enjoyed having space to prepare tsok, and for  kids to join us, playing at the back of the hall while we accumulated 100,000 tsok offerings.  During breaks, we were delighted by beautiful weather and abundant flowers in the garden, and renewed the prayer flags that circle the garden.
