2020 Trinle Nyingpo Retreat

Trinle Nyingpo Retreat June 26th-July 12th

2020 Trinle Nyingpo Sadhana retreat
Guru Rinpoche

During the Trinle Nyingpo Retreat, students will devote themselves to the Yoga of Essential Activity for the Dispeller of All Obstacles (Tukdrub Barché Künsel Trinlé Nyingpo). This year we will deepen our connection with this practice. The meaning of each liturgy and its accompanying visualizations for the main practice will be reviewed as well as instruction on cleansing offerings (sang), gathering offerings (tsok), and protector libations (solka). There will also be instruction on the ritual traditions of chant melodies, mudrās, torma making, shrine arrangements, and musical instruments. The Yoga of Essential Activity is the concise version of the main guru sādhana for the Dispeller of All Obstacles cycle, the main practice cycle of the New Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa (Chokling Tersar) tradition.

This retreat will be of great benefit to all students who practice the Tukdrub Barche Kunsel.
