The Yamantaka Tordok at Mindrolling
This important Drubchö is held from the 23rd day of the 12th lunar month to the last day of the year. It is performed in accordance with the ritual of Yamantaka of the Shinje Dregjom terma discovered by Chögyal Terdag Lingpa in order to dispel all the obstacles for the coming year. This ceremony is considered a very special ritual for the peace and welfare of all the sentient beings. Witnessing the lama dances performed on the 28th and 29th days during the ceremony is said to avert the obstacles of the coming new year.
