Guru Rinpoche or Padmasambhava was one of the Indian masters responsible for bringing Buddhism to Tibet in the 8th century. He helped establish the first monastery, Samye, and it was during his tenure that the first monks were ordained. Padmasambhava also tamed many of the negative forces that obstructed the teachings & practice of Buddhism, converting powerful entities into protective guardians of the Dharma. Nechung Monastery’s roots are associated with this preeminent master.
This Guru Yoga & Tsok is concise practice—a liturgy with beautiful melodic verses dedicated to Padmasambhava and our lineage gurus. Tsok is a gathering of people assembled to make inner, outer, and secret offerings of all that is precious in the world to our teachers and the myriad of enlightened beings.
Nechung Rinpoche will explained this meditative practice and we will engage in the Guru Yoga & Tsok together.
