Annual Ngensong Dongdruk Puja

Over the course of three days our monks will accumulate 150 repetitions of the Ngensong Dongdruk puja, the Akshobhya practice of the Tukdrup Barché Kunsel cycle.

In this very special practice, Akshobhya is invoked together with the buddhas of the five families, the five manifestations of Avalokiteshvara, as well as a further eight bodhisattvas.

Ngensong Dongdruk is a powerful method for purification and especially for guiding the deceased. Through the purification of the negative karmic causes and conditions, this practice ensures a good rebirth, the fulfillment of wishes, and the accumulation of merit and wisdom.
