Introducing monthly Phowa practice at Gar Drolma, starting Sunday, September 23rd.
For the first time, Gar Drolma will offer a monthly Great Drikung Phowa Chenmo practice, every third Sunday from noon—1:00 p.m. Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche has requested that only those who have received the Phowa transmission from a teacher attend this special practice.
Options for those who have not yet received the Phowa transmission:
This popular practice helps assure a more positive rebirth, or possibly even attainment of Amitabha Pureland, at the time of death. If you are interested in this practice, but do not have the transmission yet, here’s what you can do now:
- Contact us at email@example.com to meet with Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche to receive the instructions when possible or sign up for the next Phowa retreat held at Gar Drolma. You will be notified when it occurs.
- Attend our monthly Amitabha practice the first Sunday of every month from noon—1:00 p.m. (However in October only, it will be the second Sunday, October 14.)
- Submit names to be added to our book of those remembered at our monthly Amitabha & Phowa practices. Merit of these practices will be dedicated in their honor.
