This Audio-CD was created thanks to the auspicious meeting of Ven. K.C. Ayang Rinpoche and the monks of the Drikung Kagyu World Peace Tour 1999 to celebrate the inauguration of the new house of the Drikung Sherab Migched Ling center in Aachen, Germany. The wish to record the inimitably chanting of Rinpoche as well as traditional prayers and meditations of the Drikung Kagyu tradition existed for long time. With the present live recording great store was set not to change the original tone quality and dynamism, to guarantee an authentic fidelity.

Beyond Duality
S.E. Garchen Rinpoche
Total Time: 16:20

Garchen Rinpoche is known as reincarnation of one of the main disciples of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon. Due to this special relationship we asked him to chant the "Song of Rainfall" and the mantra of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon. Furthermore there are the mantras of White Tara and of Achi Chokyi Dolma as well as a supplication to Tara, which is often recommend by Rinpoche. Everybody, who met Rinpoche once, knows his special way to chant the mantra of Avalokiteshvara. That mantra makes the conclusion of the recording.

Chanting from the Heart
Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen Rinpoche

Total Time: 56:22

The chanting of Khenchen Rinpoche is calm and sensitive. His melodies are clear and harmonious. After a short while one is able to chant the melodies by oneself and thus make the mantras of Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon, Vajrasattva, Manjushri, the Green and White Tara and Achi Chokyi Dolma sound beautiful and oratorical. Regarding this the "Supplication to the Lamas" is an especial pearl of chanting. The chantings are framed by Refuge- and Motivation-Prayers as well as Aspiration- and Dedication-Prayers.

Ontul Rinpoche is the reincarnation of one of the twenty-five main disciples of Padmasambhava and is thus in direct contact to the transmission of blessings.

Love and Compassion
Masters of Drikung Kagyü Lineage

Total Time: 41:00

OM MANI PADME HUNG is certainly the most often recited mantra in the Tibetan society. In the process of centuries many different melodies emerged. We asked various masters of the Drikung Kagyu Lineage on their visitations in Aachen, Germany to chant this mantra of Avalokiteshvara; in particular we asked H.H. Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang Rinpoche, H.E. Garchen Rinpoche, H.E. Ayang Rinpoche, H.E. Adak Rinpoche, Drubpon Champa Rigzin and Lama Gar Tsering.
Thus seven different melodies with a wide array of chanting got together. They are framed by a short praise at the beginning of the CD and a dedication at the end. Furthermore there are two prayers to Avalokiteshvara on the CD, one of which is "The Treasury of Benefit and Happiness" to be known by some.

Chod Meditation
Drubpon Chamspa Rigzin

Kyobpa Jigten Sumgon composed a Chod practice called "Kusali Tsog Sog", i.e. "The method for beggars to accumulate merit".
Drubpon Chamspa Rigzin is a master of this meditation, in which one uses a Chod drum and a bell to attend the chanting. The consistent rhythm of the played instruments and the beautiful melodies of the chanting makes this practice one of the most marvelous meditations of the Vajrayana Buddhism.
