800th Anniversary of Jigten Sumgon’s Parinirvana in India

This year marks the 800th anniversary of the parinirvana of Drikung Kagyu founder Dharma Lord Jigten Sumgon.  In commemoration of this event, His Holiness Chetsang Rinpoche and the International Drikung Kagyu Council have announced a great celebration of teachings and rituals to take place in Dehra Dun at Jangchubling, the seat of HH Chetsang Rinpoche, from October 19th to the 25th.  All Drikung Kagyu practitioners are encouraged to attend this event if possible, or alternative events that will happen around the world.  We’ll do our best to keep people informed as to what is happening with this and other Drikung Kagyu events.
