Please bring mala, bell, dorje, and damaru (small Tibetan drum) if you have them.

As a Vajrayana practitioner you will learn different mudras. It is essential that we learn the meaning and significance of these mudras and how to perform them. It is good to know about the different colors and the types of beads that are used to make the malas. In addition, we will learn about ritual instruments, their significance, and how to use them. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will be happy to consecrate/bless the instruments that you bring to the session.

Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama's Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche. He received teachings from twenty-five masters representing all five schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Tulku Yeshi has written thirteen books, ten of which have been published, on the subject of Tibetan Buddhism and culture, including “A One Thousand Year History of Sakyapa.” He has published three books in English: his autobiography “A Modern Liberation Odyssey - An Autobiography of a Tibetan Nomad Lama”, “Handbook for Half-Buddhas” and “Tibetan Zen.” He also writes novels, poetry for mind training, provides Tibetan astrology readings, can advise people on how to enjoy their life, and can bestow empowerments. Currently he is working on Dharma activities at Sakya Monastery in Seattle.
