Dudjom Rinpoche at Thegchok Ling - Switzerland


The Rigdzin Community is very excited and honoured to announce that 


His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche Sangye Pema Shepa
—the reincarnation of HH Dudjom Jigdrel Yeshe Dorje— 


will give teachings and empowerments,
on August 2-6, 2019, at the Thegchok Ling centre in Lausanne 




Dudjom Rinpoche Sangye Pema Shepa is the main holder of the Dudjom Tersar tradition, one of the most important lineages of the Nyingma tradition. His Holiness will mainly teach on the Chö practice of Tröma Nagmo. This practice, which literally means ‘to cut’, involves a visualisation in which our own physical body is offered as food to other beings. Its purpose is to destroy or ‘cut’ our ego-clinging. The Chö was introduced to Tibet by the Indian master Padampa Sangye and his Tibetan disciple, the yogini Machik Labdrön. His Holiness will comment on the practice of Chö of the Dudjom Tersar tradition, which is a terma of Dudjom Lingpa.


His Holiness will also give the empowerments of Dorje Drolo, Vajra Kilaya and Troma Nagmo according to the Dudjom Tersar tradition, as well as the elaborated long life empowerment of Chime Sogthig, the Essence of Immortality.

Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa was born in 1990 in Kham, Eastern Tibet, as the grandson of Dudjom Rinpoche. He was recognised as an incarnation of Dudjom Rinpoche by Chadral Rinpoche, Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, and Minling Trichen Rinpoche, who were some of the most eminent masters of the Nyingma tradition. In 1994, the enthronement ceremony was held in Nepal by Chadral Rinpoche, which gathered together many students of Dudjom Rinpoche, including Penor Rinpoche, Dzongsar Khyente Rinpoche, and Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche.




Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa studied from a very young age under the guidance of Chatral Rinpoche himself, who he always considered as his root lama and main refuge. Under his guidance, he performed the preliminary practices of Dudjom Tersar and Longchen Nyingthik and stayed for three years in retreat.
Since then, Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa has become the main holder of the Dudjom Tersar tradition throughout the world. He has granted several major cycles of empowerments, including those of the ‘Collected Works of Dudjom Lingpa’ and the ‘Collected Works of Dudjom Rinpoche’.




Tickets are available on :




Beware that places at the Thegchok Ling Centre are limited (150 seats).




We have just learned that His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche wants all his teachings to be only on donation. Dudjom Rinpoche actually promised Kyabje Chatral Rinpoche not to ever make entrance tickets for his teachings. This will influence the organization of the entire European tour of His Holiness.

In our present situation, we do not have a major donor who can fund the entire event. As a result, we have no choice but to rely on collective donations to make the event financially feasible. The price of the tickets, of 487 CHF was fixed according to all the expenses planned for the event. We had calculated that if most participants would pay this amount, the event would be feasible.

From now on, you can to order tickets for Dudjom Rinpoche’s teaching on our site (www.rigdzin.ch/shop) on either a donation of 487 CHF, or on a donation of any other amount of your choice, according to your possibilities. We obviously encourage you, if you can afford it, to offer at least the amount originally set. Tickets will be sent home within 2 weeks of booking, regardless of the amount you pay.

The number of places is limited, therefore, it is very important to take your ticket in advance. In case there would be too many participants for the space the temple can reasonably allow, we would give priority to those who ordered their tickets in advance to sit inside. It is also important to transfer your donations in advance to the account of our association so that we can evaluate the feasibility of the event. If it turns out that we do not reach the amount we need for this event, we would be obliged to cancel it. In this case, all money that you have transferred to us would be refunded after deduction of transaction fees.

For those of you who have already taken a ticket, you can email at rigdzincommunity.ch@gmail.com if you want a partial or full refund of the amount you paid.


Important : only if there are tickets left will it be possible to buy tickets directly at the door on August 2. We ask you to please come at least one hour prior to the beginning of the teaching or empowerment to purchase your ticket.


Doors open and ticket-selling opens at 8:00 am (for morning teachings 9:00 am)
Doors open and ticket-selling opens at 2:00 pm (for afternoon empowerments 3:00 pm)


The visit of His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche will be finalized and confirmed by the related authorities. In case of cancellation, the price of the ticket will be fully reimbursed, with the exception of the transaction fee which is 3.5% (CHF 17.05 for CHF 487 pass).


It is strictly impossible to park your cars in front of the Thegchok Ling Centre. Please note that all the places marked in yellow are private places belonging to the neighbors. Make sure you use public transport or park your cars in the public car parks in Lausanne.


Possibility to picnic on site at lunchtime.
