Welcome to Vimala!

Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche

Founded in 2007 under the auspices of the Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche, Vimala is a nonprofit Tibetan Buddhist organization devoted to facilitating spiritual development by supporting the study and practice of dharma (the teachings of the Buddha).

Vimala's activities include collecting, archiving, and disseminating dharma teachings and practices, with a particular focus on those associated with the Nyingma lineage of Vajrayana Buddhism.  In addition, Vimala supports the translation of dharma in order to make it available to practitioners worldwide and facilitates the training of future translators and teachers to help ensure that dharma will remain in the world for the benefit of future generations.

Chimed Sok Tig (Quintessence of Deathlessness) Long Life Practice--

Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche has encouraged his students to do the Chimed Sok Tig (Life Essence of Immortality) practice, in order to support our own longevity since long life gives us greater opportunity to practice dharma.  Almost simultaneously, advice was requested from the Dudjom Sangyum as to how to support Gyatrul Rinpoche's continued health and longevity; although his health is generally quite good these days, he is subject to the aches and pains of his 90-year-old body.  Her answer was, practice Chimed Sok Tig!  Thus, Tashi Choling encourages all students to recite and accumulate the mantra for this practice. 

Click here to download the Chimed Sok Tig daily practice (the text also includes a short commentary on the visualization and a diagram of the syllables.)

NEW!  A lovely new translation of the extensive practice of Chimed Sok Tig is now available!  See the "featured treasures" below to order (item #XTCHISOKRET).
