T’hroma Nagmo Tsok ~ with Lama Padma
This T’hroma Nagmo practice belongs to the Dudjom Lingpa Cycle. It was one of the first sadhanas H.E. Chagdud Rinpoche taught in the West and it has continued to be a treasured practice of the Chagdud Gonpa sangha.

Every Day Dharma: Awakening Moment to Moment
~ A Dharma Talk with Lama Padma
We often wonder how we can integrate our practice into our everyday life as if both needed to be reconciled, while in reality our life is our practice ground. Lama Padma will illuminate how we carry our practices into the world, touching our whole life experience.
All are welcome! Incense-free event.
Suggested donation $20

Kusum Gondü Avalokiteshvara ~ Teachings & Tsok
This sublime practice of the Great Compassionate One is a revealed treasure of the terton Tromge Khacho Wangpo and was the Chenrezig practice of H.E. Chagdud Rinpoche. Lama Padma is a lineage holder for this Chenrezig practice.
May 5, Sunday, 9am – 12pm
Red Tara Tsok
In words of H.E. Chagdud Rinpoche: “Red Tara practice is an open door to bliss and ultimate awareness. Just as you use a mirror to see your face, Tara meditation is a means for seeing the true face of your mind, devoid of any trace of delusion.”
