Drupchen - "great practice" - is a group Chakrasamvara sadhana practice that the Vidyadhara requested to be performed each year after Milarepa Day. It is initiated by construction of the Chakrasamvara sand mandala and a feast shrine, followed by daily feast practice. Daily practice sessions will run 9 am until noon, and 2 pm until 5 pm.
Special teaching sessions:
Wednesday (March 19th) 7:15pm Acharya Lodro Dorje
Friday (March 21st) 7:15pm Acharya Mermelstein
Sunday (March 23rd) Feast begins at 9am, Talk by Acharya Lodro Dorje at 3pm
Chakrasamvara practitioners are encouraged to come together to review, renew and celebrate.
Help is needed with coordination, set-up, food, as well as the different positions of chopon, umdze and dorje loppon throughout the drupchen.
Suggested donation of $10 daily to cover feast expenses, and $20 on the last day for the final feast.
Open to Sadhakas having received the Chakrasamvara Abhisheka. Registering is encouraged, to have a sense of numbers!
