The annual 9-day Tsekar Drubchen ceremony belongs to the “Great Accomplishment Group Sādhana of White Amitayus” extracted from among the 40 volumes of the Chokling Tersar. Traditionally, the Drubchen commences on the 8th day of the first lunar month of the Tibetan New Year, ushers in auspicious circumstances for the practitioners’ twofold attainment of longevity and primordial wisdom.
More than 500 monks, nuns, high Lamas, and laypeople, both local and Western, are expected to attend the Drubchen which is performed in strict round-the-clock sessions for 24 hours each day. For 9 days the extraordinary event will presided over by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Phakchok Rinpoche, and Tulku Urgyen Yangsi Rinpoche.
Throughout the 9 days, all visitors are welcome as observers or participants in the pūjā, and may come and go as they wish.
