Welcome to Mar-Ngok.org

Mar-Ngok.org was launched in the blessing of the fullmoon day 9th of July 2017 (Tibetan calender: 15th day, 5th month) by the wish of H.H. Drikung Kyabgön Thrinley Lhundrub. The motivation of H.H. Drikung Kyabgön Thrinley Lhundrub is: 1) establishing Marpa in his proper place within the Kagyu Lineage, thus using the force of history. 2) as well as revitalizing the transmissions passed from Marpa to his pupil Ngog Chöku Dorje, especially with focus on 2 of the Ngok mandalas: the Hevajra (9 deity) and Nairatmya (15 deity).

In the middle of the 19th century Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye gathered the special lineage on the Hevajra Teachings. For centuries such teachings were also transmitted in the Sakya lineages. In mid 1990´s His Holiness gathered the aspiration to revitalize the Kagyu teachings of Marpa on Hevajra and Nairatmya. Again and again for over 5 years, His Holiness requested Kenchen Appey Rinpoche for the teachings on the Hevajra Tantra. These were given in 2001 in Kathmandu. Later in 2004 or 2005 His Holiness transferred these teachings to around 40 prominent Drikung Kagyu lamas, drupöns, khenpos and rinpoches. It is very precious, that His Holiness now in 2020 will again transfer these precious teachings as a gift to this world for the new millennium.

[Special notice: the dates and programme for the Mar-Ngok Hevajra event in 2020 have been changed several times.]

[The final program: teachings on the Hevajra Root Tantra, based on commentaries by Marpa and His Holiness. There will be given Hevajra Empowerment on the first day.]
