    We are happy to announce that the Venerable Drubpon Ngawang will be holding a two-day retreat on Chenrezig (via Zoom) on the weekend of Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th March.

    White in colour, Chenrezig embodies the activity of compassion of all the Buddhas. We will follow the text composed by Drubwang Shakya Shri, entitled 'The Sadhana of the Great Bodhisattva, the Noble and Sublime, called The Bindu of the Most Profound Essence'. A link to download an english version of the text will be sent out soon. This retreat is especially recommended for beginners. 

    There will be two sessions each day, from 9.30 to 11.30 am and from 2 to 4 pm. Once again we are fortunate that Tsunma Ngawang Jinpa will be acting as translator for the retreat

    The costs of the teachings is £12.50 for a single day or £20 for the weekend.

    Please follow this link to book.

    Booking will close on Friday March 18th at 12 noon and the Zoom links will be sent out by email shortly after that

    These teachings are open to all regardless of your level of experience of Buddhism. Many of us will have become more familiar with Drubpon Ngawang's teachings over the last 18 months by following the regular live streamings from the Drukpa Plouray facebook page. These teachings have covered a vast range of topics relating to Buddhism, including the history of the Drukpa Lineage, the essential points of Vajrayana practice, as well as fundamental Buddhist teachings such as the Four Noble Truths. Many of these teachings can also be found on YouTube

    Based on a summarised preliminary practice this short Guru Yoga practice has been composed by His Holiness the Gyalwang Drukpa for his western students. Guru Yoga is considered to be highest, most profound practice by allowing us to realise the union of our perfectly pure mind with the Enlightened mind of the Master
