To participate in the Dechen Gyalmo Drupcho from home, follow these 3 steps:
1 ) Register above with your email address
There is no fee to register for the program but we are encouraged to make offerings. Please register by October 2, 2021.
Rinpoche has spoken of drupcho practice as a “wish-fulfilling jewel” for bringing about accomplishments on the path, and a true labor of love.
An important part of these practices is the feast offering we make every day. This practice of "great giving without holding back" reverses our habitual self-centered psychology and can thus enable practitioners to overcome even our most tenacious obstacles.
To cover the costs of hosting practice at Phuntsok Choling and for the tsok offerings, we suggest a $25/day contribution.
You can also make a prayer request here.
3 ) Order the liturgy
If you do not already have the Sadhana liturgy, we strongly recommend that you order a physical copy of the Sadhana Set. We have found that it is much easier to follow the online practice session with a paper copy instead of trying to view the liturgy online or on a device. Please do this ASAP so that it will arrive in time for the start of the Drupcho. You may also purchase a digital pecha through msbstore.org. Note: this updated version of the sadhana set includes the DG tangkhas, DG lineage prayer translation, as well as numerous corrections to symbols, links, etc. If you purchased the previous digital pecha, email [email protected] and we will send you the updated version for free.
This program is open to everyone who has gone through the MSB Lineage Ceremony. For questions about attendance, please write to the Study and Practice department. If you can't make it to the program, you can still share the merit of these feast practices by making an offering.
How to participate in the practice from home:
The best way to participate in this program is to do every session. If that isn’t possible, one can do any number of full days of practice. However, since every day is a complete practice, do not plan on joining for assorted sessions here and there. We suggest you open the stream and be ready to begin 5-10 minutes prior to the start of each session.
At minimum, Rinpoche recommends making a Tsok plate with a variety of offerings including fruits, cheeses, some meat, beverage. You should have a shrine with bowl offerings. If possible, it is good to have mendrup and rakta on your shrine.
