Drikung Phowa Practice


Phowa, or “transference of consciousness at the time of death,” is the simplest and most direct method to attain enlightenment.


If phowa occurs correctly, the consciousness of the departed is reborn instantly in the pure land of Dewachen, avoiding other dangerous rebirths. It is one of the Six Yogas of Naropa.

While there are many marvelous fascinating phowa instructions in the various tantric traditions, the Drikung Phowa lineage, whose Tibetan name "Jaktshukma" means "the standing grass blade," is one of the most powerful and precious phowa practices still taught today.


Phowa jagtsukma instructions are presently upheld in an unbroken lineage through the Drikung masters. The Drikung order is famous for its ability to successfully transfer the power of the phowa meditation to initiated and devoted practitioners who practice it.
