Tsekar – White Amitayus, an introduction

Tsekar Drubchen – an introduction

The Tsekar Drubchen is a collection of liturgies for the Great Accomplishment Group Sadhana of White Amitayus, written down by the two great masters Chokgyur Lingpa and Jamgon Kongtrul.

Tsekar means White Amitayus and drubchen means great accomplishment.
The following is an excerpt from the empowerment manual written by Jamgon Kongtrul the First.

In essence the White Amitayus is the totally unobscured dharmadhatu (basic space of phenomena) of all tathagatas. It is as the natural radiance of this utterly indestructible, ultimate state that Amitayus manifests as the sambhogakaya endowed with the five certainties and with buddhafields and bodily forms the densely arrayed ornaments of which are equal to the expansiveness of space.
Just as the analogy of the king of wishfulfilling jewels which is able to appear in a variety of colors, in the same way Buddha Amitayus in his boundless compassion is able to assume any possible form that is in accordance with the karmic disposition of those to be trained. This is why he appears as the Lord of Longevity in five families endowed with the perfect activity that easily protects you from the immense fears of mortality, that possesses the special mantras that bestow both temporary and ultimate benefit, or which readily helps you to attain your desired aims simply by having faith and devotion.
The White Amitayus practice which is endowed with all these eminent benefits was discovered by the great incarnated Chokgyur Lingpa from various places in eastern Kham.

This was what Jamgon Kongtrul said. The tradition for practicing the Tsekar drubchen ceremony of the White Amitayus has been continued in an unbroken lineage until the present day. The late master Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche revived this tradition at his seat in Nepal, the Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery, where the drubchen is performed every spring with attendance of hundreds of lamas, monks, and lay people. Here the drubchen is presided over by the monastery’s abbot, Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, and the vajra master, Chokling Rinpoche.
