Very Special Event:

Complete Yuthok Nyingthig Empowerments and Teachings with Dr. Nida Chenagtsang

In order to consecrate our new Yuthok Ling temple, Dr Nida will offer three days of empowerments, supplementary instruction, and ritual consecrations.

Suggested donation of $200 - 300, plus teaching gift to Dr. Nida.

Offered extremely rarely, the complete set of Yuthok empowerments includes:

  1. Root Empowerment (rtsa ba mchog dbang)

  2. Essential Ripening Empowerment (smin byed don dbang)

  3. Permission Blessing of the Medicine Goddess (sman gyi lha mo’i rjes gnang)

  4. Knowledge-entrustment Empowerment of Kapila Rishi (drang srong ser skya’i rig gtad)

  5. Conclusory Long-life Empowerment (mtha rten tshe dbang) 

The Yuthok Nyingthig (Tib. གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་), the ‘Heart Essence of Yuthok’, composed by Yuthok the Younger, is a complete cycle of Vajrayana Buddhist practice, beginning with the preliminary practices (Tib. སྔོན་འགྲོ་ “ngöndro”) and progressing through the development and completion stage practices to the highest practices of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. It is characterized by its concise and simple methods which bring about both worldly benefits, including improved health and longevity, as well as the ultimate benefit of complete spiritual liberation. The Yuthok Nyingthig is the main spiritual practice of Tibetan physicians, and it contains many unique techniques to heighten the intuition and healing capacities of the doctor.

Please note, this is a non-residential event. We have teamed up with the beautiful nearby Tara Sanctuary to offer accommodation for our guests.
