The Grand Blessing Ceremony of the 10,000 Offerings to the 21 Noble Taras
The 2018 Dzogchen Buddha Path Tara Drupchen will commence at 10 AM on Friday, April 27, 2018 and conclude at 6 PM on Sunday, April 29, 2018. (Participants may attend one or more days.)
This three-day public event will be held at the Northwest Tibetan Cultural Association’s Lemelson Auditorium and is a rare opportunity to participate in the Tibetan Buddhist practice and ceremony known as drupchen to help increase personal well-being while contributing to world peace. It is an unprecedented event in the Portland area. Everyone is welcome to participate in this extraordinary ceremony.
The Tibetan word drupchen translates literally as “Vast Accomplishment.” This extremely powerful group practice draws upon all the skillful methods of Dharma contained within the Vajrayana teachings to generate great merit and eliminate negativity of all kinds. This type of sadhana, or “means to accomplishment”, includes abundant offerings, visualizations, mantras, mudras, chanting, music, and dancing. All of these supports for positive thinking harmonize to help create a pure and sacred environment in the perception of the practitioners. It is said that the positive karma generated by several days of drupchen practice engaged with the correct intention can equal months or even years spent in solitary retreat.
