A Drupchen is a traditional form of meditation retreat in Tibetan Buddhism that lasts for about ten days. It involves a large number of lay and monastic practitioners and is led by at least one High Lama.
It is regarded as a very powerful practice, and is said to act as a remedy to the negative forces at work in the world, and to promote inner personal peace, peace within the community and world peace.
It epitomizes the depth, power, and precision of the Vajrayana, drawing together the entire range of its skilful methods: mystical, ritual, and artistic. All blend to create the transcendent environment of the pure realm of the deity and awaken, for all those taking part, the pure perception of ourselves as a buddha and our surroundings as a sacred world.
Drupchen, A Visual Journey, which is mainly without narration, was made by Stephane Lun-Sin and takes an immersive approach to place the audience in the middle of this sacred ceremony that took place in 2011 in the presence of great meditation masters such as Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, Chokling Rinpoche and Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche as they opened the new Chokling Monastery in India.
