6th Annual Sangwa Yeshe Drubchod Update!

Ewam warmly invites all Ewam students, as well as those who are new to these teachings, to attend the 6th Annual Sangwa Yeshe Drubchöd. It will be presided over by HE Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, the spiritual founder of Ewam International. In addition to Rinpoche and Namchak Khen Rinpoche, many other eminent masters such as Ven. Jetsunma Jamyang Palmo and Drubpon Lama Karma will bestow various teachings in between the Drupchod sessions. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this occasion, as it will be very unique compared to earlier Drupchods you may have attended.

What is a Drubchöd?

Drupchöd is a Vajrayana Buddhist ceremony aimed at bringing temporary accomplishments (siddhis) of pacifying, enriching, magnetizing, and subjugating as well as the supreme accomplishment of attaining enlightenment within a lifetime. We believe that participating personally or making offerings of money or service with the proper motivation can bring you, as well as the object of your dedication, long life, good health, prosperity, power, wish fulfillment, and the removal of obstacles.

With this retreat you can also increase your knowledge of Vajrayana ritual practices, which will bring you benefit in personal retreats and group practices. You may also arrange to come 2-3 days in advance to learn from Khenpo Namchak Dorji how to use ritual implements and make tormas.

Information for Newcomers

This retreat is open to all levels of Vajrayana practitioners. Any person who attends the first day, June 8th, and receives the required empowerment to practice, may attend either partially or fully for the week.  Click here for more information and to register.

About Ewam

“May the universe and sentient beings enjoy a new era of peace and happiness through the interdependent power of bodhicitta - the awakened, compassionate heart/mind. May it arise where it has yet to arise, not weaken where it has arisen, and grow and flourish forever.” -Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, Founder of Ewam’s Garden of One Thousand Buddhas

The name Ewam ('Eh-wam') itself brings together the two Sanskrit syllables for wisdom and compassionate methods. Actualizing the union of these two is the goal of all Buddhist practice.

Ewam International in North America and Asia, The Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism, is a non-profit organization under the guidance of founder and spiritual director, Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche. The Ewam Sangha members support Rinpoche's activities and benefit from the immense merit and enrichment, taking profound teachings from Rinpoche.

Although the International seat of Ewam and its activities resides at the Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in the beautiful Jocko Valley in Arlee, Montana, Ewam has centers in Montana, New Mexico, California, India, Nepal, Taiwan, and Hong Kong.
