Book Discussion (no Phowa Practice this week – note time change)

April 14, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

We will be discussing Mind Beyond Death by Dzogchen Ponlop to gain deeper insight into the human experience at death and beyond. Our mo‌n‌t‌h‌ly Great Drikung Phowa Chenmo practice will continue every ‌th‌ir‌d S‌un‌‌day from no‌on—1:00 p.m‌. with the book discussion running from 1‌:00—2‌:00 p.m.‌

Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche has requested that only those who have received the Phowa transmission from a teacher attend this special practice. However, the book discussion is open to all who wish to attend. Mind Beyond Death will be available in our bookstore.


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 info@gardrolma.org 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.
  • 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.
