3rd ANNIVERSARY OF SOGYAL RINPOCHE’S PARINIRVANA

At lerab ling and online

To mark the third anniversary of Sogyal Rinpoche’s parinirvana, Lerab Ling will hold a special event to commemorate his vision and Dharma legacy. This event is open to all Rigpa mandala students.

You can join this five-day event at Lerab Ling or live online at home and follow all the practices you wish! It will include sitting meditation, teachings, and Vajrayana practices focusing on the Lama Rigdzin Düpa ‘The Gathering of Vidyadharas,' from the Longchen Nyingtik, and other sadhana practices. 

The schedule will be spacious and run throughout the day. We aspire to accomplish a tsok bum (100,000 tsok prayers) over these 5 days with generous tsok offerings, beautiful flowers and many butter lamps. You are welcome to contribute to these practices and make a donation online.
