The Drupchen Tong-Thun

The Vajrayana Foundation 33 years of unbroken Drupchen Retreats began with a tenth lineage holder of the Repkong Ngakpas, Lama Tharchin Tsedrup Rinpoche, a Tibetan Dzogchen master in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism.

On July 9th, the 10th day of the Tibetan Month of the Iron Monkey in the year of Water Tiger, we celebrate a most auspicious day, Guru Rinpoche’s birthday with Drupchen Sindhis and with the Empowerment of Dudujom Rinpoche’s (Jigral Yeshe Dorje) Collection of Seven Treasures to be bestowed by Tulku Thadral Rinpoche. Join Tulku Sangye Tenzin, Tulku Jamyang Rinpoche, Khenpo Sonam Rinpoche, and Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche at the Peme Osel Ling Retreat Center in the Santa Cruz Mountains for this Dharma Celebration or you can join via livestream for great blessings.

Here are the direct no registration livestream session links:

July 9, 6:00 am – Collection of Seven Treasures Drupchen Session 1 –

July 9, 9:00 am – Collection of Seven Treasures Drupchen Session 2 –

July 9, 1:00 pm -Dance of the Eight Manifestations of Guru Rinpoche and Other Sacred Dances –

Instead of having a traditional day at the end of Drupchen when we enact the Eight Manifestations of Guru Rinpoche, Lingdro, and perform other sacred dances, this year the dances will be integrated into the puja. Please let us know if you would like attend. We request that all participants bring evidence of a recent negative Covid test and wear a mask in the shrine room. Get more information at
