Announcement of Hevajra Drupchen

Milarepa 2First Hevajra Drubchen in Europe
 with H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Thinle Lhundup. It is with the greatest joy that we announce the upcoming visit of H. H. Drikung Kyabgon Thinley Lhundup. For the first time in Europe, His Holiness will lead the Hevajra Drubchen according to the Marpa Ngok transmission of the Drikung Kagyü lineage. The event will begin with a Hevajra initiation and teachings, followed by the Drubchen.

 

Marpa journeyed to India three times to receive and practice teachings. Most of Marpa's transmissions derive from Naropa. Hevajra was Marpa's main Yidam from the 13 Mother Tantras. His Holiness wishes to revive Marpa's Yidam practice, as this Mar Ngok line is in danger of dying out.

Therefore, His Holiness hereby officially declares that the Milarepa Retreat Center in Germany will be the location where the Drubchen and all Mar-Ngok Hevajra Tantra teachings will be practiced as a "Specialty" here. His Holiness has accordingly created a program in which each year there will be alternately a Hevajra and a Nairatmya Drubchen from the Hevajra Mandala.

All practitioners from throughout the world can participate in the Drubchens. The teachings will be translated into English and German. No previous knowledge is required.

The Naropa tradition of the Hevajra was Marpa Lotsa main Yidam and Marpa Kagyu's main practice lineage. H.H. wants to revive Marpas important lineage as it is endangered and on the brink of extinction. In order to implement to this important teaching we setup a Mar-Ngok website. This website was authorised by Carl Djung and Jette Aarestrup Mortensen. For more details: http://www.mar-ngok.org

Registration for the Hevajra Drubchen takes place on a first come first served basis. The number of participants is limited. Please register early at www.milareparetreat.org
