Aspirational prayers for peace and happiness
 Guided by Dzogchen Ranyak Patrul Rinpoche

DHARMA CITY (Belgium), July 5 - July 16, 2012
A text about the meaning of drupchens and written by Patrul Rinpoche can be read here

A drupchen (great accomplishment) is a group practice in the form of a meditation retreat partaking of the Vajrayana tradition and guided by an experienced Lama. During the seven or ten days of the retreat, practitioners continuously perform the sadhana, offer the tsok feast and recite the drupchen prayers and mantra, doing so in shifts in order to rest between the recitations.

In July 2012, Patrul Rinpoche will guide a Vajrasattva Drupchen, like he did in 2010 in Georgia and 2011 in Dharma City and plans to do every year during the fifth Tibetan month. Compared to previous years, this time a greater focus will be made on the preparation of the Drupchen. A four days preparatory course will give everyone the time to learn the perfect way of performing a Drupchen, and the Drupchen will run for 7 nights and 6 full days. It is an extraordinary opportunity for everyone to keep alive this tradition of their lineage and to create a cause for future well-being and happiness for themselves and for all beings. The drupchen will take place in the serene setting of Dharma City, imbued with Rinpoche's kindness and compassion.
 
Participating in this powerful practice is regarded as bringing the same benefit as practicing during several years in solitary retreat, training those attending in pure perception and sharpening their ability to perceive their environment as a Buddha realm.
