Vajrasattva Hand Mudras

In 2001, Lama Tharchin Rinpoche taught how to do the hand mudras for the the Dorsem Lama Chopa practice by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje. Because this is the practice we have been doing for Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa’s Maha Parinirvana, it’s a good time to reintroduce this recording to learn the hand mudras. ~ Recorded at Pema Osel Ling with a two hour runtime.

Also available, instruction text in a black and white photographic arrangement of Dorsem Lama Chopa Mudras: the ritual hand gestures by Lama Sonam Rinpoche published by Vimala Treasures.

The Maha Parinirvana Livestream from Pema Osel Ling continues daily 9:00 am – 12:30 pm and 2:30 – 6:00 pm until March 18th.
