Sidpe Gyalmo, the queen of the Universe

Within the Yungdrung Bön tradition, there are many protectors who offer support and protection. Chief among these protectors is the enlightened deity, Sipé Gyalmo, the Queen of Existence. Uniquely, she is both a yidam and a protector.

Drubkhang, at Menri Monastery

Drubkhang (Meditation center, also called the Proctector temple), is the main temple where her prayers and offerings are performed daily in Yungdrung Bon Monasteries. She is called upon to remove external, internal and secret obstacles for both practitioners and for the religious tradition.  In this way, she protects health, prosperity and spiritual development as well as supports our success in whatever we want to accomplish.

The retreats of twelve main deities of Yungdrung Bon are also performed in Drubkhang in the last week of every lunar month.
