Palyul Tibetan Buddhist Sangha
Yumka: the Queen of Great Bliss
Yumka is practiced on Dakini Day (25th day of the Tibetan lunar calendar) in Namdroling and many other Nyingma monasteries and centers around the world. The central meditation visualization of the practice is on the wisdom Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal, as the Khandro. The wisdom Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal was also a consort of Guru Rinpoche and the founding mother of Tibetan Buddhism. All female buddhas are manifestations of Wisdom Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal. Through this practice one understands Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal to be the embodiment of the three kayas.
This practice is a tsog (or feast offering), so please bring a small food offering (already prepared), flowers and/or other offerings. For first time visitors, this a longer practice (approximately 1.5 hours). If possible, please bring a device such as iPad/lap top/tablet…we will be sharing the text via Zoom for everyone.
The Palyul Sangha aspires to nurture, strengthen and serve our community through study, practice and living the Buddhadharma. We follow the principle of Bodhicitta- loving kindness and concern for others- which brings happiness and benefit to all living beings. We are under the direction of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche and our spiritual guide Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche. All are warmly welcome to join us!
Practice will begin at 10:30am
