Phowa

PHOWA (Transference of Consciousness at the Time of Death)

Rinpoche introduces practitioners to both Nyingma and Drikung Kagyu practices that will prepare one to face death with confidence.

“Among the tantric methods, Phowa practice is the most direct, quickest way to achieve to the enlightenment state.  More than this nothing. This Phowa practice is very easy compared to other practices in the Vajrayana Buddhism.  Everybody can do this practice.” “One time [taking the Phowa] course is not enough.  Those who have been in the Phowa course 7 or 8 times, those people still they need more practice.”                                                                                                H.E. Ayang Rinpoche

“It [Phowa] is extremely helpful for the dying person and, like a traveler being put on the right path by a friend, has the power to prevent rebirth in the lower realms.”   Words of My Perfect Teacher, Patrul Rinpoche
