Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
sends us a message from Bodhgaya in which he encourages all his students to practice in retreat! Rinpoche talks about Gomde Pyrénées as a beautiful and remote place where you can practice in groups under the guidance of Drubpön Lama Tenzin and individually.
Rinpoche also mentions the annual Sphere of Refined Gold retreat as a wonderful opportunity for profound practice. In 2024, this retreat will be held from February 24 - April 23. Please follow Rinpoche’s advice and join your Dharma sisters and brothers in practice! You can register here.
"When we are suffused with compassion in what we do, then definitely we are perfect practitioners."
