Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche gave:

* Dögü Choktsöl- Dzambala (Barchey Künsel)
* Mipham`s Magnetizing Invocation
* Short and medium Chö (Barchey Künsel)

* Did we receive the transmission for:

At the Dzogchen retreat he gave the empowerment at Rigpey Tsalwang (Empowerment for Awareness Display) according to Rigdzin Pema Jungney.

Lama Tendzin gave an explanation of the Ngakso puja based on the text "Ocean of Amrita" , translated by Heidi. (Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche would like to see Lama Tenzin's talk from 2006 and 07 transcribed and edited for the benefit of people in various countries. Volonteer?)

And ? ...

Please fill in the rest.

Pema Jungne empowerment

The dzogchen seminar of 2008 with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche is now finished.

This Thursday, Rinpoche together with Buchung and Erik Pema Kunsang left Denmark to go to Gomde US. A group of approximately 30 practitioners greeted them as they drove off to Aarhus airport.

Rinpoche gave teachings on all the spontaneous songs of realization by Lama Shabkar found in "The Flight of the Garuda".

The seminar was concluded by an empowerment to Rigdzin Pema Jungney, one of the twelve aspects of Guru Rinpoche from the Barchey Kunsel cycle of teachings.

Needless to say, the teachings were amazing, and being among almost 100 friendly familiar faces of vajra brothers and sisters have been a wonderful experience.

Just as Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche left, the preparations for receiving Chokling Rinpoche and his family began.

This writer have now left Gomde, and will probably not be able to report or post any pictures from the teachings and empowerments with Chokling Rinpoche. But stay tuned, there may be others ready to share what's going on...

Ngakso puja at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde.

A few years ago Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche suggested that we perform the Ngakso puja every year.

So, today the international sangha at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Denmark gathered to practice the Ngakso puja with feast offering.

Approximately 70 practitioners performed the vajrayana purification and mending ritual from the Barchey Künsel terma revealed by Chokyur Lingpa.

Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche was the vajra master, Lama Tenzin was leading the chants. Buchung played the drum and Achung was chöpön.

Everything proceeded very nicely with people being able to follow the text and actually do the practice without getting lost among the pages of the various chant books.

A lavish feast was offered with not only vajra pure offering articles, but also purely organic (and vegetarian).
