  • Sengey Tsewa teaching with the Venerable Drubpon Ngawang

    We are happy to announce that the Venerable Drubpon Ngawang will be giving teachings on Sengey Tsewa, in London in March 2020.

    Sengey Tsewa or "The Revelry with the Lion" is a particular practice of Prajnaparamita. Dakini Machig Labdron offered the teaching of Sengey Tsewa to the Omniscient One - Kunkhyen Pema Karpo (the Fourth Gyalwang Drukpa 1527 - 1592) - through his guru Ava Dhutipa. Ever since then it has been the main practice of many yogis of Tibetan Buddhism. The beneifits of Sengey Tsewa practice can be categorised into two parts :

    1. Through the practice of non-attachment (Shunyata) towards one's own body, one will be able to free oneself from sufferings such as diseases and unwanted incidents, and accumulate merits to eventually attain the form of Buddha (Rupakaya)

    2. Through the practice of non-attachment (Shunyata) towards one's own conceptual thoughts, one will be liberated from the mental distractions and eventually attain the full realisation (Dharmakaya) of complete omniscience (Wisdom of Buddha).

    His Holiness the Twelfth Gyalwang Drukpa
