His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche visit November 2023

11/18/2023 - 11/25/2023

Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche

Gaden KhachoeShing Monastery is very blessed and honored by the upcoming visit of His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche from November 18th - 25th 2023

During this visit, His Holiness will bestow Vajrayogini Initiation and offer commentary on Vajrayogini practice. Vajrayogini practice is one of the unique heart practices of our Gaden Ear - Whispered lineage passed down from Kyabje Phobongkhapa Dechen Nyingpo to Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang so forth.

This is a very rare opportunity to receive this Initiation and teachings from His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche at a place blessed by Vajrayogini and Dorje Shugden (Gaden KhachoeShing). We invite all our dharma brothers and sisters around the world to this precious dharma event. It will help us to preserve and promote to continue this unique practice of the Gaden Nyen-gyue lineage for the benefit of all beings.

His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Choktrul Rinpoche is the eighteenth in a lineage of eminent Indian and Tibetan pandits and masters. Kyabje Rinpoche completed his primary studies under his root guru H.H. Kyabje Lati Rinpoche and Kyabje Dagom Rinpoche, Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche and many other respected teachers. At present he is spiritual director of the Trijang Buddhist Institute Vermont. He has travels many countries to teach dharma and help countless sentient beings.

Vajrayogini Initiation

The Vajrayogini initiation is one of highest yoga tantra teachings. Relying on Vajrayogini practice, one can achieve Buddhahood within one lifetime despite unfavorable circumstances. In this degenerate age, Vajrayogini blessings will be stronger and more quicker to receive. By relying on Vajrayogini, this tantric female form of Buddha, one can quickly attain higher spiritual qualities and create the conditions to be reborn in Vajrayogini pure land (Kechara) in one short life time. This practice conveys methods for transforming all our daily activities into a swift and blissful path to full enlightenment.  Teachings will start 2pm each day. Kangso 10am on Friday.
