The Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal is the mother of all Buddhas– the Wisdom Consort of Guru Padmasambhava. Yeshe Tsogyal possesses inconceivable primordial wisdom, compassion, and the power of protection and manifestation of the enlightened activities. This Tagsham Yeshe Tsogyal Practice helps us to attain these qualities through purifying our two obscurations and perfecting the two accumulations.
From a relative point of view, we undergo this unsurpassable practice to become the rightful recipient of the four empowerments and the empowerment of the dynamic energy of intrinsic awareness, to generate the timeless wisdom of great bliss and emptiness, and to create the interdependence of being taken under the care of the precious Guru. From a historical point of view, it is due to Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal’s compassion, wisdom & power of total recall that we have the entire teachings of Guru Rinpoche intact. These teachings are revealed by treasure revealers from time to time. In sum, the Yeshe Tsogyal Drubchöd is a practice on the manifestation quality of the primordial nature in accordance with the unsurpassable Ati Yoga teachings.

During the Tagsham empowerments in Brazil, our precious master H. E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche emphasized the importance and need for this practice for all the Vajrayana practitioners in general, and his students in particular. Therefore, this is one of those few retreats which we can not afford to miss.”
