Throughout the year, many drubchens and drubchö are held at Mindrolling Monastery continuing with the great tradition and precious practice set forth by Chögyal Terdag Lingpa.

During the autumn one of the main drubchö held at the monastery is the Kame'i Tsogchen Düpa. During this time, five separate drubchö are held simultaneously creating a most profound environment of deepened practice and generating boundless blessings for all sentient beings. The great Sadhana of Yangdag, the Sadhana of Gyuthrul Zhiwa and Sadhana of Tsogchen Düpa were held in the three shrine rooms of the Great Stupa – the Guru Lhakhang, the Shakyamuni shrineroom and in the lineage shrineroom called the Le Lang.

The Gyuthrul Throwo was held in the main shrine room of the monastery and the Lung Lug Tshe Pag Med (Amitayus) Sadhana was held in the shrine room of the Shedra.

Venerable Tulku Gyurme Namgyal presided over the Sadhana of Yangdag, Venerable Tulku Ugyen Tenphel Nyima was the lopön for the Gyuthrul Zhiwa, Venerable Tulku Lhundrub Tengay was the lopön for the Tsogchen Düpa, Venerable Thutob Namgyal was the lopön for the Gyuthrul Throwo and the lopön for Lung Lug Tshe Pag Med was Venerable Tulku Ugyen Lhundrub.
