Coinciding with the Saga Dawa Düchen (ས་ག་ཟླ་བ་དུས་ཆེན་), a five-day annual Pema Tseyi Nyingtik Drubchen started today.
Pema Tseyi Nyingtik: Pema Tseyi Nyingtik Drubchen (པདྨ་ཚེ་ཡི་སྙིང་ཐིག) is a mind terma revealed by Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, a practice of longevity based on Amitayus (ཚེ་དཔག་མེད་). Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche first had a direct vision of the mandala of Amitayus related to this practice, arising from a lake in Dokham, while he was offering a ganachakra puja on the banks of the lake. Later, as he was circumambulating the meditation cave of Vairotsana at Pema Shelpuk, he had a dream in which Yeshe Tsogyal handed him a yellow scroll. Following Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö’s guidance, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche puts this cycle of teachings in writing and granted him complete empowerment and practice instructions.
