Du Tri Su Initiation and Empowerment

with H.E. 7th Kundol Rinpoche, Tempa Dukte Lama, Geshe Tenzin Tarke Gurung, and Geshe Chhembel Gurung
Sunday, June 12, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Olmo Ling Center & Institute, 1101 Greenfield Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15217.

The 7th Kundol Rinpoche will offer the Du Tri Su Initiation and Empowerment with Tempa Dukte Lama, Geshe Tenzin Tarke Gurung, and Geshe Chhembel Gurung. This initiation and empowerment has the power to clear negative karma and obstacles in our lives, including illness, disease, misfortune, sadness and depression, or natural catastrophes. In particular, this initiation will clear the conditioning of the lower realms of existence. Du Tri Su is the heart practice of Bon, taught by the founding Buddha of Bon, Tonpa Shenrab, in order to give people a practice that has the power to liberate simply by hearing or reciting it.

Receiving this special initiation and empowerment will have great benefits for you and your family for this life and in the future. Tempa Lama especially encourages you to attend and to bring your family. Children younger than 16 attend for free.
