The 10th lunar day of each month is the time to practice Drenpa Namkha and his two sons, Tséwang Rikdzin and Pema Tongdrol according to the Yungdrung Bön religious tradition. August 10th 2019 is the 10th day of the 6th lunar month. Drenpa Namkha was an historical figure who realized complete liberation and is revered as both a great lama and also a yidam, or meditational deity.
May the collective, compassionate blessings of the Victorious Ones of the 10 directions come for the welfare of sentient beings in this world.
I pray for uninterrupted blessings from the subduer of demons, Drenpa Namkha.
Now, during this negative time, the forces of good are lost and the forces of evil rule the land.
You are surrounded by the gods and goddesses of the earth and their retinues.
I pray to the Great Lama and his two sons, to the subduer of demons, Drenpa Namkha,
may the forces of good have power to act in this world!
My present and future refuge and protector, bless me to accomplish all of my intentions!”
— Extract from the Fourteen Verse Supplication to the Subduer, Drenpa Namkha
