Journey to the Extraordinary

The Empowerments and Reading Transmissions by Rabjam Rinpoche on the Collected Works of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo at Ewam India, January 10 – 24, 2020

Upon the request of Gochen Tulku Namchak Sang-ngag Rinpoche, H.H. Kyabe Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche Gyurme Chokyi Senge has kindly accepted to bestow the rarely offered reading transmission (lung) of the entirety of the collected works of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo (Pema Osal Do-ngak Lingpa) and all the empowerments of the incredible Seven Modes of Transmission.

Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo (1820-1892), was a major treasure revealer—the last of the Five Sovereign Tertöns—and one of the most eminent masters of the nineteenth century. Recognized as the combined incarnation of Vimalamitra and King Trisong Deutsen. His direct previous incarnation was Jigme Lingpa. He studied with masters of every great authentic tradition. He mastered the complete and unbiased traditions of India and Tibet existing at that time which he passed on to his disciples.

Continuously giving transmissions, teachings and empowerments of the non-sectarian teachings of the Buddha; he became the founder of the Rime (non-sectarian) movement in Tibet. Not only did he possess infinite learning, he also developed unsurpassable qualities of experience and realization through perfecting the practice of meditation. Some of his subsequent reincarnations include Jamyang Khyentsé Chökyi Lodrö and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

These transmissions and empowerments are a once in a lifetime inconceivable opportunity in the original land of Buddhism, India; specifically Siliguri, West Bengal, the sacred landscape of the mahasiddhas . The event will be held at the newly built beautiful Ewam temple and Monastery. Accomodations will be at local hotels and guesthouses in and around Siliguri. There will be simulcast english translations via a radio frequency.

Coordinator person for westerners is James Curran who has information on accommodations, travel issues and obtaining an Indian visa. While there is no formal registration we do ask people to get on our attendance list so we can keep the organizing committee informed. There is no fee for this event; there will be ample opportunities to make personal offerings of your choosing. Please contact james@ewamshedra.org for more information.

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 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 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 in additon has centers in Montana, New Mexico, California, India, Nepal, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. The Garden of One Thousand Buddhas is also home to the Ewam Buddhist Institute and the summer Buddhist studies program inaugurated in 2016 by Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche.
