H.E. Garchen Rinpoche 2013 Seattle Teachings

Drikung Seattle proudly welcomed H.E. Garchen Rinpoche to Seattle, WA
January 17–20, 2013

Garchen Rinpoche kindly conferred Milarepa empowerment and precious Mahamudra Teachings

The Five-fold Path of Mahamudra includes the cultivation of bodhicitta, guru yoga practice, yidam practice, Mahamudra practice, and the dedication of merit. This is a special way of laying out the path of practice according to the Drikung Kagyu lineage. It is especially good fortune to receive these teachings from Drupon Yeshi Rinpoche, because he holds this lineage purely. He received it directly from one of the main Drikung Kagyu lineage holders, Drubwang Pachung Rinpoche, and also from Drubwang Tenzin Nyima, the main lineage holders of the Fivefold Path of Mahamudra. To receive the direct transmission of these teachings from Drupon Yeshi Rinpoche is thus a very rare and precious opportunity.

Special thanks to HH Dagchen Rinpoche and his entire family and all the dignitaries, staff and members of the Sakya Monastery for hosting us so graciously.
