Oral transmission of Dudjom's sungbum
Kuensel Online[Wednesday, December 15, 2004 20:11]
More than 5,000 devotees from the eastern dzongkhags are receiving empowerment and transmission of Dudjom Rinpoche's Sungbum or Tersar (25 volumes of collected works of Dudjom Rinpoche) and other blessings from Garab Rinpoche at the Rangjung Woesel Chholing monastery in Trashigang.

The discourse of the Terma (Dudjom Tersar) tradition begins at 7.30 am and concludes at 6.30 pm with Wanglung blessings in the afternoon every day.

Lams, monks, laymonks and nuns from 57 religious institutions from various parts of the country are also attending the 45-day oral transmission which began on November 26. An eight day annual Phurpa Namchag Pudri Drubchhen (Vajra tradition) will follow the transmission teachings. The Drubchhen is held for the general well being of the country.

Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987) was well known as a very prolific author and a scholar. His writings are celebrated for the encyclopedic knowledge they display of all the traditional branches of Buddhist learning, including poetics, history, medicine, astrology and philosophy according to Dudjom Buddhist Association International.

Unique in having received the transmission of all the existing teachings of the immensely rich Nyingma tradition, Dudjom Rinpoche was also famous in particular as a great Terton (treasure revealer), whose Termas are now widely taught and practiced, and as the leading exponent of Dzogchen (complete teachings).

Located some 17 kilometres from Trashigang town, the Rangjung Woesel Chholing monastery is situated on an elevated ridge overlooking the Rangjung town and neighbouring villages of Bidung and Radhi.

It was built in 1989 by Garab Rinpoche to encourage local people in Rangjung and people across the country to enroll themselves with the dratshang. The three-storied Rangjung Woesel Chholing monastery resembles the Moendroeling lhakhang in Tibet.

The monks of the dratshang mainly preach and practice the Dudjom Tersar of Nyingma tradition. At present, the dratshang has more than 110 monks and four teachers headed by a Khenpo.
