A group of fifteen retreatants has just entered the first three year retreat of our Shedrub Mandala in the west, on September 23rd, 2022!
Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche led a day long ceremony at the newly renovated retreat center at Gomde Pyrenees. The day started with an elaborate fire puja, pacifying local forces, followed by a touching speech by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche and an ‘auspicious rain of flowers’! Finally the boundary of the retreat area has been established and it was time to say good bye to family and friends for the next three years.
The previous days Rinpoche had imparted the necessary reading transmissions, empowerments and instructions.
We heartly invite you to join us on a tour through that special day.
