Summer Teachings and Retreats 2015

As the summer approaches we are getting close to our first month long summer retreat, with teachings and practice at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde Cooperstown together with Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche, lamas and sangha. This is a time to be able to spend time practicing with Rinpoche and sangha and receive further teachings and guidance in our practice or learn how to practice the dharma and establish a daily practice.

28 May 2015 - Compassion in Action

Dear Friends Near and Far,

We are trying our best over here in Nepal. Thank you all so much for your support. On this Guru Rinpoche day I would like to remind you of a few things.

28 April 2015 - Nepal Earthquake

Dear Friends Near and Far,
As you all know, on Saturday Nepal suffered a devastating earthquake that took the lives of thousands of people and has left many tens of thousands of others destitute, vulnerable, and filled with fear. Fortunately, our community of monks, nuns, and students are safe and our monasteries relatively undamaged. Many other areas though have suffered overwhelming loss and destruction.

23 September 2015: Message from Bhutan Pilgrimage

Dear Friends Near and Far,

I apologize for the lateness of this Guru Rinpoche Day email. We have been on pilgrimage for the the past week and have been unable to send this  until now due to wifi issues. We were just at the Tharpaling monastery of my guru Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche and the wifi was not strong enough to send this message.
