1st ADC - Dragons Going Places

The huge helium-filled Balloon that was set up just in time to go with the theme for the day
"Dragons Going Places"

The Most Venerable Yangben Lobpon gave an introduction on the history of the Drukpa Lineage in Bhutan

Kyabje Satrul Rinpoche gave a vivid and moving account of the Yogis and Yoginis of Eastern Tibet
who gained enlightenment within a lifetime through the practice of the Dragon ways.
He also provided a glimpse of the plight of the Drukpa Lineage in Eastern Tibet,
where masters of the lineage now need to come together, hand-in-hand,
to protect our precious lineage.
Kyabje Satrul Rinpoche is the nephew of the late Kyabje Adeu Rinpoche,
and he is also the regent of Kyabje Adeu Rinpoche.

Kyabje Sey Rinpoche introduced a very interesting history of the Drukpa Lineage in the Himalayas.
He is the son of the late Kyabje Apho Rinpoche, who is also the grandson of one of
the greatest yogis of the last century - Drubwang Shakya Shri of the Drukpa Lineage.

composed by His Holiness himself, based on a text written by the Fourth Gyalwang Drukpa,
the great Kunkhyen Pema Karpo, one of the most celebrated Yogi of the 17th century.

Rinpoches, Tulkus, monks, nuns and lay devotees lay on the floor to receive this unique empowerment
