Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche’s

Khyung Mar ~Red Garuda

Drubpa Retreat

March 19th -26th, 2024
In Person Only

Rinpoche felt it was time to have a serious Khyung Mar ~ Red Garuda Drubpa retreat to help the students who are learning the Khyung Mar ~ Red Garuda practice and to deepen and refresh past students who have taken or practice with the Khyung Mar ~ Red Garuda practice.

Connecting with the Yidam Khyung Mar, experience the serious ceremonial structure under the guidance of Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche.

This advanced tantric practice of the Khyung Mar will be taught and lead by Latri Khenpo Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche. He would like all students to acknowledge this retreat as a serious sacred advanced retreat. Rinpoche welcomes all who have studied the Red Garuda ~ Khyung Mar, either by his online course, retreats or by other masters and who are genuine and willing to practice for self or healing for others to join us at this retreat.

Rinpoche will guide us in keeping inner experience of Khyung Mar blessing and energy. This Drubpa will be opened with the installment of the Khyung Mar altar, daily Tsok offerings, Phurba, Ta Chen, Chi Tsam and other sacred ceremonial practice. Items will be collected and placed on the alter till the Drubpa is over. Rinpoche encourages everyone attending to have a Phurba, and Melong at the retreat for a blessing and transfer of the Khyung Mar energy during the retreat.

Through this retreat, you will discover the deep mysteries of the Red Garuda. By the end of this retreat, you will be able to close your eyes, hear the call of the Red Garuda, see the Red Garuda and feel the power of the Red Garuda instantly when in need.

This practice will take you to a place of greater understanding, where you may be able to unveil the mystery of the Red Garuda, and be even more powerful in your practice.

The Khyung Mar ~ Red Garuda practice is a powerful practice. Yeru Bon Center has had many students emailing and sending letters on how the Khyung Mar practice has helped them to heal. Even our own Deborah, went deeply into the Khyung Mar ~ Red Garuda meditation when she had her heart attack and continued until after her surgery days later. She will tell you, it was her practice of the Khyung Mar that kept her alive.

Other students who struggled with cancer will tell you, how the Khyung Mar practice helped them to heal and to manage their illness. Many more students throughout the years have said the same.

There are over 57 parts of the Khyung Mar Teaching, making this a deep and complex practice. But the reason behind our work to present the progressive teachings of the Red Garuda is purely because this is an amazing practice. A Tantric practice, a powerful healing practice, a daily living practice, and a visual and meditative practice.

Besides your Phurba and Melong, we will ask you to bring a copy of Rinpoche’s Khyung Mar Book.

Commitment. Because of the seriousness of this Red Garuda Retreat, Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche has requested students must attend the entire retreat from beginning to end. This is to maintain the sacred space, continuity of community, and focus of all practitioners.

At the end of the retreat all students will receive a special item for your altar, designed for the students attending this retreat, signifying you are a Khyung Mar Nyam Lenpa, Experienced Khyung Mar Practitioner.

If you are new to the Khyung Mar ~ Red Garuda Practice, you are still welcome to come, but you would understand this practice better, if you were able to review the online course and Rinpoche’s book.
