Happy Year of the Wood Dragon & a New Teaching from Lama Tharchin Rinpoche


Losar Tashi Delek Phun Sum Tsok!

Happy New Year of the Wood Dragon 2024!

May the auspicious and majestic Year of the Wood Dragon 2024 bring long life, prosperity, and lasting happiness, with the courage and strength to accomplish all our goals!

Our own root lama and supreme head of the Nyingma, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, was born in the year of the Wood Dragon. In honor of this auspicious New Year, we are offering a 1996 teaching by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche on the Terma Tradition, the sacred hidden treasures tradition of Padmasambhava and the Nyingma school of Vajrayana Buddhism. It represents the great secret short lineage of Buddhist transmission in Tibet.

You can stream the teaching for free on SoundCloud, where you'll also find many other recordings by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche.

For more teachings on the terma tradition, please read the excellent "Hidden Teachings of Tibet, An Explanation of the Terma Tradition of the Nyingma School of Buddhism" by Tulku Thondup Rinpoche (Wisdom Publications, London: 1986).

Also, in honor of the Vajrakilaya Gutor practices to dispel obstacles and negativity of the previous year, be sure to visit us on YouTube to view videos of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche performing the Sha-Nak Cham (Black Hat Dance) and other activities from past Gutor Losar Retreats.
