Vajra North--Rigdrol Dechen Ling Society - is the Canadian chapter of Chagdud Gonpa, founded by the late Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche (1930-2002), a highly accomplished and respected master of the Nyingma School of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism.
The Society was established in 1984, when His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche made his first visit to Whitehorse, and continues to the present time with a solid group of dedicated Buddhist practitioners. Throughout the year, the Society regularly brings to Whitehorse various lamas to provide public presentations, conduct seminars and retreats and provide empowerments for specific meditation practices. A prayer, written for Vajranorth by Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche:
The view of unwavering, self-arising awareness, is the foundation. Meditating by letting the mind rest in its true nature, uncontrived and self-liberating, is the path. Effortlessly expressing one's true nature, is the blissful fruit. May this precious place of happiness and benefit to self and others expand and increase.
