Pangphug Monastery is very pleased to announce that we will be celebrating the 900th Anniversary of the First Karmapa Düsum Khyenpa at the end of this month. The celebration will be hosted at Pangphug Monastery for three days on September 29th, 30th, & 31st. We are anticipating a large gathering and participation from approximately 1000 monks from 15 different monasteries. The local lay community will be participating in the festivities and events as well.

The Celebration events will include practices of Karma Pakshi Guru Yoga Tsok (Feast), khata offerings to and receipts of blessings from the famous “Speaking Statue” of Düsum Khyenpa, as well as the performance of other rituals and dances.

This event is graciously being sponsored by The Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.

Pangphug Monastery is well known as one of the great sites founded by The First Karmapa, Dusum Khyenpa (1110-1193), one of the four main students of Gampopa. During his 84-year lifespan, Dusum Khyenpa founded many monasteries in different areas; among these are his five major seats, those of his body, speech, mind, knowledge, and activity. Lingthang Pangphug is the seat of Activity.
