Rinpoche began the ritual by conducting a Fire Offering Puja to remove obstacles, followed by the preliminary empowerments. He was later visited by Tulku Rinzin Pema, the master who would be bestowing the oral transmission.
On the second day, before the start of the empowerments, Ringo Tulku, the host of the transmission and the chief master of Palyul Choekhor Ling, offered a special mandala to Yangthang Rinpoche in blue, white, and red to commemorate the recent terror attacks in Paris.
Auspiciously, 21 November was Guru Rinpoche Day, and practitioners from Bhutan, China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Tibet, and elsewhere made offerings to Rinpoche and other monastics. Rinpoche himself also made an offering to all the tulkus, Khenpos, monks, and nuns in attendance.
Rinpoche bestowed the final part of the Nyingtik Yabshi empowerment on 22 November, along with a Long-life Empowerment to conclude the transmission.
On the morning of 23 November, Yangthang Rinpoche returned to the main shrine hall to join the second half of a Tsok Offering Puja conducted by all the monks at Palyul Choekhor Ling Monastery. Rinpoche then presented certificates to the monastery’s Khenpos and qualified teachers.
