At the sincere and persistent requests of Venerable Thich Vien Thanh's disciples, His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa finally agreed to visit Vietnam in 2007. In His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpas first visit to Vietnam in December 2007, more than 20,000 Buddhist devotees attended the empowerments and teachings. His Holiness took with him Their Eminences Khamtrul Rinpoche Jigme Pema Nyinjadh and Thuksey Rinpoche and nine monks in his first visit, consecrated an ancient holy land provided by the government to be used for spiritual retreats and practices. Celestial dragons were seen. Rainbows appeared continuously. Thunders signifying the roar of celestial dragons and drizzles signifying the rain of blessings happened frequently before and after several sessions of empowerment and teaching.
It was in this auspicious setting that His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa and His Eminence Khamtrul Rinpoche visited Vietnam the second time. The successful spiritual journey could not have been possible without the merticulous planning of His Eminence Khamtrul Rinpoche and his disciples in Vietnam. Everyone is extremely moved and inspired that a few of these young masters of the Dragon Lineage have now gradually and actively assuming their roles and responsibilities. The visit concluded with an attendance of 80,000 individual devotees in a gathering in Ho Chi Minh city, southern part of Vietnam. Otherwise most gatherings during this second visit were attended by no less than 20,000 to 50,000 devotees.
