Sunday, August 6: Empowerment of Gesar Gyalpo (enrichment) and Lingdro dances

We are very pleased to announce that on Sunday, August 6, at 9:30 AM Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche will be bestowing the empowerment of Gesar Gyalpo, Wish Granting Jewel, at the Ripa International Center. Celebrations of the Wang include the presentation of the Lingdro Dances performed by the Swiss Tibetan Lingdro Dancers. This day is co-organized by the Swiss Tibetan Community. The Ripa Center and the Sangha are very much looking forward to this auspicious day and to the celebration of the Tibetan cultural heritage here at the home of the Ripa lineage in the West.

Gesar Enrichment Drupchoe:

The Enrichment Gesar – also called Sengchen Samphel Norbu Gyalpo, Great King Lion of the Wish Granting Jewel – is the embodiment of all the wisdom and mundane wealth deities. This practice was written by H.E. Terton Namkha Drimed Rabjam Rinpoche himself, as part of his revealed mind treasure (Terma) on the teaching cycle of Gesar, with the blessings of Guru Padmasambhava.

This is a very rare opportunity for students receive these precious teachings from Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche. In this lifetime, as prophesied by Guru Rinpoche, His Eminence, the Ripa lineage holder, is a mind emanation of Gesar. During the time of Gesar, he was Dongbumpai Gyatsa Gyalkar, the brother of Gesar.

The teachings and practice of Gesar are vital to this time and age of degeneration. In essence, Gesar is the Body emanation of Manjurshri, Speech of Avalokiteshvara, Mind of Vajrapani. In quality and activity, Gesar is the same as Guru Padmasambhava.

It is said that participating in the Enrichment Gesar Drupchoe brings immense benefits to one’s life: improve health, increase one’s own lifespan as well as merit and success in every day’s life.
