Phowa, one of the Six Yogas of Naropa, is a method for transferring one’s consciousness at the time of death to Buddha Amitabha’s Pure Land – a place without suffering – where conditions are conducive to practicing Dharma and coming to enlightenment quickly. Learning this method and facing the inevitability of death enables one to die with confidence when the time comes.
The Drikung Kagyu lineage is renowned for its particularly powerful transmission of the practice of phowa. Every 12 years the Drikung holds the Great Phowa Chenmo. During that time, the Drikung Kyabgon confers the transmission on thousands of monks, nuns, lamas and lay people attending from all around the world.
Khenpo Konchok Molam has received several phowa transmissions from HH Drikung Kyabgon – most recently this spring in Washington DC. – and has generously offered to instruct our sangha in the practice. Each session will involve both instruction and practice. If you decide to attend you must attend ALL sessions.
