Kusoom Ling Drubdra International announces its Yar-Tsham September 2023!

As we all know that due to Covid 19, TYBSC UK had to postpone the yearly Yar-Tsham (Summer Retreat).

As always, the Retreat will run for 15 full days.

The topic of the Yartsham will be Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud Dzogchen teachings.

The retreat is also open to the general public and the specific PREREQUISITE must be fulfilled.
Details including venue will all be made known to individuals once they register.

The envisaged date would be from Friday the 1st to Friday the 15th September 2023.

Register with Umzey Rob Tsewang Norbu:


Ku-soom Ling Drubdra International will not hold the Yearly Yartsham (Summer residential retreat) as we did in the past, until further notice. This is due to the continuing international COVID situation and for health safety precaution.
The Yearly Yartsham and non-residential retreats will be resumed when the situation is conducive.
However, the ongoing Zoom based events are continuing, including the Three Year Dzogchen Course for the International Drub-dhe, as an alternative to Yar-tsham. This Dzogchen Teaching is mainly based on ZHANG ZHUNG NYEN GYUD. The course is restricted to ONLY those who have received Dzogchen Ngondro and Ngozhi teachings, as per Ku-soom Ling Drub-dra international's curriculum.

visited TYBSC UK in May 2019

News and Appeal: The Gonpa and The Residence

This is also to update you on the BONPO GONPA known as “Kusoom Lhundrub Ling” at New Barnet which was formally acquired on 4th, March 2013 by TYBSC under the direction of Khyimsar Lama Rinpoche. It is now called Gonpa since the installation of the Buddha statue, from Lhakhang as initially named. Although the Gonpa did not grown in size on a conventional level but on a spiritual level it has grown boundlessly since the successful installation of the statue of the JOWO TONPA SHENRAB, in the best possible authentic method & wisdom way including its RAB-NEY-consecration, based on Yungdrung Bon Buddhism of Zhang Zhung and Tibet. Thus the Gonpa forms the complete spiritual essence of Zhang Zhung and Tibet—a little TIBET at your door step!!! Therefore, we have created a most profound Holy-Pilgrimage site at your door step and Khyimsar Lama Rinpoche strongly suggests that every human being should take advantage of this, regardless of one’s believed faith, to come for pilgrimage. Pilgrimage or NEY-KOR’s concept is to purify one’s kar-mic sins which have been accumulated during one’s many past life times, in one’s present life and one’s future lives, through various negative actions such as killing, stealing, sexual misconducts, lying, causing frictions, idle gossips, negative intentions, evil thoughts, repudiation of enlightened teachings etc.

One can make sincere CONFESSIONS in front of the Buddha Tonpa Shenrab who is lively there in the GONPA with HIS indiscriminate Love and Compassion. The London Jowo Tonpa Shenrab, as Rinpoche also calls the statue, is ever ready to FORGIVE you if you sincerely confess all your kar-mic sins and PROMISE not to repeat such actions again from now on and the possibility of being forgiven is in the horizon of BUDDHA TONPA SHENRAB!!! There will be no cost at all to come for the PILGRIMAGE. Traditionally, one can make offerings or bring organic butter which will be offered in front of your London Jowo as shown here in your and your family’s name (both living and dead). It’so simple to do yet has GREAT BENEFIT!

Such an authenticity is lacking in almost everyone’s life. Khyimsar Lama Rinpoche intentionally created the Gonpa and the statue keeping in mind that people have nothing other than bubble-like lives and are lacking such an opportunity! Nobody should die without purifying one’s karmic sins here and NOW! Students in UK, Europe and USA should encourage anyone to come and organise such NEY-KORS, which is again an act of compassion.

In the 2013 News update, we have mentioned that the NEWLY ACQUIRED Lhakhang/Gonpa is a stepping stone for a retreat centre. As it’s fifth year is approaching, TYBSC under its directorship of Khyimsar Lama Rinpoche, looked and searched various lands & properties and were able to find a number of suitable retreat centres in the Lake District and Wiltshire areas, etc. However, due to lack of funds, we could not proceed further.

With love and best wishes, From Rinpoche and the trustees of the TYBSC
