Under the repetitive request of the monks of Nangchen, particularly the faithful sanghas of Nangchen Garh, Drukpa Choegon Rinpoche has finally returned to the beloved holy land of his root guru in August of year 2013.

After such a long wait, the heart-warming and inspiring moment has dawned for the two great masters to meet again. From the Vajrayana perspective, nothing could be more meaningful than the reunion of a guru and his heart-son.

The primary objective of this trip is to perform the hair-cutting ceremony for the six-year-old  Pema Choegyal and to conduct various relevant rituals according to the conventional Vajrayana tradition. Prior to the hair cutting ceremony, Rinpoche has conferred few important empowerments and transmissions to all the Rinpoches, Tulkus, monks and nuns at Nangchen Garh.

On top of that, Rinpoche has accepted the invitation to visit and bestow blessings in few key temples of other lineages in Nangchen. Despite the tight and heavy schedules, Rinpoche has compassionately conferred few public teachings, initiations and blessings to the fortunate disciples. Even though the monastery has not sent out any official invitation, thousands of devotees flocking in from afar to witness this sacred and memorable moment.
