|Medicine Buddha Mandala Consecration||11.00- 12.30pm|
|Lunch||12.30 – 1.30pm|
At Land of Shambhala we have been working to construct Sudarshana, the city where the Medicine Buddha first taught the Medicine. The herb garden is in the shape of the Medicine Buddha Mandala surrounded on all sides by magical trees including a Bodhi tree. Inside the Mandala are 4 gates with 16 prayer wheels filled with the mantras of the Medicine Buddha guarded by 16 dragons. In the outer ring of the Mandala will be the 6 additional Medicine Buddha’s according to Dolpopa’s text and 2 Taras linked to healing. In the center, is a precious Medicine Fountain filled with the healing water of Lama Lobsang Trinle a manifestation of Vajrapani and the Medicine Buddha. The Vietnamese community have donated a Medicine Buddha sculpture made of Blue marble.
Consecration is an incredible important step for any holy object. It is when the Gurus embodied as the Buddha invite the essence of the Buddha to come forth in the object for the benefit of beings.
Khentrul Rinpoche Jamphel Lodrö has invited one of his favorite and highly respect masters, H.E. Kathog Rigzin Chenpo to consecrate the statues and the space.
H.E. Kathog Rigzin Chenpo learned Tibetan medicine and about the healing qualities of herbs from Khamtsang Rinpoche who was also a Tibetan Doctor. Rinpoche spent many years in his youth searching the mountains for medicinal herbs. He taught him the Medicine Buddha Tantra text and how to understand Coded text and prophecies. He also studied Geography, Feng Shui, Medicine and Astrology from Thubten Norbu Rinpoche.
Tibetan. Khentrul Rinpoche Jamphel Lodrö will translate to English.
Additional translations to be determined.
This event is a public talk that will be live streamed on Facebook on Dzokden.

Kathog Rigdzin ChenpoRimé & Nyingma Vajra Master
The sixth reincarnation Kathog Rigdzin Chenpo Rinpoche was born in the Golok region of Qinghai Province. When he was young, he was recognized as the incarnation of Rigdzin Chenpo by such Lamas as the sublime Khamtsang Terton, Karma Chakme of Pelyul, Lama Norpel Jadral Rigtsel, Gown Tulku & many others. In a previous life he was also one of Dolpopa’s 14 heart disciples. Rinpoche is now the spiritual leader of the Kathog Rigzin Chenpo Dharma Association and the abbot of the Kathog Rigzin Chenpo Dharma Meditation Center Center in Taichung City, Taiwan. He maintains several retreat centers in Tibet, Singapore, and Malaysia.

Khentrul Rinpoché Jamphel Lodrö is the founder and director of Dzokden. Rinpoche is the author of Unveiling Your Sacred Truth 1, 2, and 3, The Great Middle Way: Clarifying the Jonang View of Other-Emptiness, A Happier Life, and The Hidden Treasure of the Profound Path.
Rinpoche spent the first 20 years of his life herding yak and chanting mantras on the plateaus of Tibet. Inspired by the bodhisattvas, he left his family to study in a variety of monasteries under the guidance of over twenty-five masters in all the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. Due to his non-sectarian approach, he earned himself the title of Rimé (unbiased) Master and was identified as the reincarnation of the famous Kalachakra Master Ngawang Chözin Gyatso. While at the core of his teachings is the recognition that there is great value in the diversity of all spiritual traditions found in this world; he focuses on the Jonang-Shambhala tradition. Kalachakra (wheel of time) teachings contain profound methods to harmonize our external environment with the inner world of body and mind, ultimately bringing about the golden age of Peace and Harmony (Dzokden).
