Yangti Nagpo 2019 Dates

Garden of One Thousand Buddhas - Arlee, Montana

Vajra Group (Year 1) ~ September 13th - September 20th

We are very happy to announce that Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche has generously decided to open up the Yangti cycle of teachings to a new group of students again this fall.

The teachings of Yangti Nagpo ("Black Quintessence") are a cycle of teachings belonging to the "Yangti" class of Ati Yoga teachings of the Nyingma Tradition. A lineage holder of the Yangti Nagpo Cycle, Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche has taken upon himself the responsibility of upholding, preserving, and disseminating these unique practices both in Asia and the United States.

Although sometimes mistakenly considered to be solely focused on dark retreat, Yangti Nagpo is in fact an extensive cycle of spiritual trainings spanning the breadth of Tibetan Vajrayana practice. All participants, regardless of previous experience, begin the cycle of teachings at the preliminary level and progress through the practices. See the Yangti Nagpo website here.

*Anyone interested in joining this retreat must have permission to attend from Rinpoche prior to registering. Please email Khenpo Namchak Dorji at tulkusangngag@gmail.com to request permission.  Be sure to include your practice history; teachers with whom you have studied, which ngondro you completed/are currently engaging in, or if you are a new student to Buddhism, etc.

Please contact yangtinagpo@gmail.com with questions or for more information.

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.
