Guru Rinpoche Day

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

August 20th 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 Khading Tsal, one of Guru Rinpoche's manifestations. On the 10th day of the month of the Dog, when the Tirthikas from Tamradvipa threw Guru Rinpoche into the Ganges, he caused the river to flow in reverse order and rose to the sky performing a Vajra dance, thus becoming known as Guru Khading Tsal, the Guru soaring in the sky like the Garuda.
