Guru Rinpoche Day

  • Academy of Mantric Disciplines 119 Roosevelt Drive Poughquag, NY, 12570 United States (map)

June 23rd marks the 10th day of the lunar calendar when the male energy of skillful means is most prevalent. 

This day also marks the Anniversary of Guru Sengey Dradok, one of Guru Rinpoche's manifestations. On the 10th day of the month of the Monkey, when the Tirthikas from South India tried to cause great harm to the Dharma, Guru Rinpoche vanquished the Tirthikas and their gods and guardians into dust with his great powers.  Waving triumphantly the Victory Banner of the Dharma, he became known as Guru Sengey Dradok, the Guru who roars like a lion.
