Yuthok Ling, currently under construction at Pure Land Farms will be the first temple dedicated to the Yuthok Nyingthig tradition in the United States.
Located on the highest point of the land, it is a sanctuary of peace and healing energy. At Yuthok Ling we will host regular retreats, teachings, and guided group practice sessions.
A life size statue of the 12th century yogi-physician, Yuthok Yönten Gönpo, known as the father of Tibetan Medicine will be the center-piece of the temple, flanked on two sides by the Medicine Buddha and Shanglon, the special protector of the medicine tradition.
Yuthok Yönten Gönpo was a great non-sectarian teacher, and students and practitioners of all lineages are most welcome to take part in the practices offered here.
In the future, pportunity to engage in solitary retreat will be available for students on secluded parts of the land nearby.
Yuthok Ling will act as the spiritual counterpart to Sorig Institute, our Tibetan Medicine school on the property. Together they represent the union of dharma and medicine, which can be practiced separately or together in perfect harmony, for the benefit of self and others.
A blessing of the Yuthok statue will take place in September 2018, during Dr. Nida Chenagtsang's trip to the United States.
Yuthok Ling is connected with a growing network of Yuthok Nyingthig practice sanctuaries worldwide. Projects are currently underway in Bhutan, Buryatia, Mongolia, and Spain!
"May I achieve wisdom in all medicine sciences,
And benefit all sentient beings like the sun and the moon.
May all that is spoken be omniscient.
May all compounded formulas be medicine.
May all that is given be beneficial.
Grant me the common and uncommon siddhis."— གཡུ་ཐོག་སྙིང་ཐིག་ Yuthok Nyingthig Aspiration Prayer
