Red Vajrasattva Retreat
Five-Day Drubchod with the Reading Transmission of
Patrul Rinpoche’s ‘Words of My Perfect Teacher’

Vajrasattva meditation practice purifies the subtle mental and emotional habits that obscure our free, compassionate and open nature. Utilizing the skillful means of the Vajrayana tradition, it is swift and powerful.

A Drubchod is a group ritual ceremony that includes prayers and mantra recitations, relevant Dharma teachings and daily feast offerings (tsok). The retreat culminates with the accepting of the spiritual accomplishments (siddhis) and concludes with auspicious prayers and aspirations.

During the retreat, Jigme Tromge Rinpoche will read the scriptural transmission (lung) for Patrul Rinpoche’s classic commentary, Words of My Perfect Teacher, which is available in a wonderful English translation. It is imperative to receive this transmission as an authorization to read this text and fully comprehend its meaning.

The prerequisite empowerment will be conferred by Jigme Tromge Rinpoche on the morning of the first day.

JIGME TROMGE RINPOCHE is the resident teacher of Ati Ling. The son of the late master His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche, Rinpoche was born in 1965 in Orissa, India, where he had the good fortune to receive a traditional Buddhist education. He has had extensive training in the teachings and practices of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism and has studied with many great masters of our time including H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, H.H. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche and the venerable master, Khenpo Ngakchung. He also studied philosophy with Khetsun Sangpo Rinpoche and at the philosophy school of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, late head of the Nyingma school.
