Annual Ngakso Mending and Purifying Drubchen at Nagi Gompa
January 29 – February 6
The annual 9-day Ngakso Drubchen ─ ”Ocean of Amrita Mantric-mending”─will be performed primarily by the monks, in Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery’s main temple from march 29th until april 6th, 2023. Usually the drubchen is being presided over by the monastery’s abbot, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Phakchok Rinpoche, and Tulku Urgyen Yangsi Rinpoche.
Ngakso (Tib.) means ‘mending (faults) by means of mantra’ while drubchen (Tib.) means ‘great accomplishment.’ This tantric sadhana is a terma (Tib.), or hidden treasure, concealed in Tibet by Guru Rinpoche, and rediscovered centuries later by the incarnated great treasure-finder, Terchen Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa.
Extracted from among the 40 volumes of the Chokling Tersar, the melodious and enchanting sadhana practice is especially effective for restoring broken samaya (spiritual pledges), strengthening the bond between student and spiritual teacher, and dispelling obstacles in the bardo state for those who have recently passed away. The puja consists of two parts carried out daily: morning sessions are devoted to mantra recitation, which invokes the blessings of Guru Rinpoche, his 12 Manifestations, Lord Chenrezig, Lord Amitabha, and the Peaceful and Wrathful Deities. Afternoon sessions feature very touching and profound confession and tantric purification practices, as well as empowerments and a special feast-offering.
