His Eminence the Ninth Ogyen Tulku Rinpoche will be in Washington, D.C. this weekend, February 27 and 28, as the very honored guest of Palyul Changchub Dargyeling: the formally sanctioned Palyul lineage center serving the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia, personally established by the late Kyabje Penor Rinpoche as the legitimate lineage seat in the region, and now under the spiritual direction of Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche.
Ogyen Tulku will bestow the Guru Rinpoche as Medicine Buddha (Urgyan Menla) empowerment on the 27th, and will lead a Shower of Blessings puja on Chotrul Duchen, the 28th. Further details may be had by clicking this link to PCD's brochure.
If you are in the region, and wondering what to do for Chotrul Duchen, this is the place to go.
