In September, at the conclusion of the Vajrayana Retreat, the sangha came together for a three-day Minling Dorsem (Vajrasattva) drubchö, the authentic and renowned ritual tradition of Mindrolling Monastery. Her Eminence Mindrolling Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche presided over the drubchö, which was elegantly led, in Tibetan, by the chief umdze of Mindrolling Monastery, Ven. Tulku Ngawang Jigdral Kunga Rinpoche.
Jetsün Khandro Rinpoche has described the drubchö as the summit of the Lotus Garden year. It is believed that tremendous benefit and merit arise from the collective practice of a drubchö for each practitioner in particular, and all sentient beings in general.
