Event Details

  • Nov 5, 2023 (Sun)
  • 10.30 am – 1.30 pm
  • Kechara Forest Retreat
  • Free. RSVP here as seating is limited.



In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, most serious practitioners request oral transmissions of the texts they are studying or practising. An oral transmission plants the blessings of the text being transmitted in the mindstreams of the people in attendance. These blessings empower our spiritual practice so that it eventually fruitions into realisations and attainments.

During the transmission, the lama recites aloud the text being transmitted. The lama himself must have received the oral transmission faultlessly from his teacher, who received it from his teacher, going back in an unbroken lineage to Buddha or the original source of the text. On the part of the attendees, we must listen to the words of the transmission with full attention, coupled with the motivation to benefit others.

In this manner, we receive the blessings of the lineage without which we would not be able to reap the results of our practice to their full extent.


How to Join

  • Admission is free and everyone is welcome. To ensure we have enough seating for all guests, please RSVP your attendance here.
  • You must be present throughout the entire ceremony. If you leave the hall while the oral transmission is in progress, it means that you did not receive the transmission.


Prerequisites and Commitments

  • There are no pre-requisites to receive this oral transmission. Anyone can attend and admission is free. Kensur Rinpoche has requested attendees not to offer khatas or kuyong (monetary offering) for the transmission.
  • There are no commitments after you receive the oral transmission.
