Support Three-Year Retreat
Dear friends, if you are reading this now it is very likely that your heart has been touched directly by our beloved teacher, Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. His amazing profound guidance helps us to transform ourselves, every time he teaches us, year after year. We all know these profound instructions need to be implemented in strict retreat. Rinpoche’s vision of establishing a three-year retreat place here in Gomde Pyrenees is already happening, and the first one will start in June 2022!
A group of lay and ordained practitioners, women and men of different ages and from all corners of the world, will begin retreat in June 2022. This first group will be guided by a senior Lama of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling according to the tradition held in Asura Cave and Nagi Gompa.
This has only been possible through the blessings of Rinpoche and the lineage teachers, and the aspirations of many serious practitioners who genuinely want to focus on the path.
The project is moving forward, but it can only happen with strong financial support from all who can donate, otherwise the renovation cannot be completed by June. Our team of volunteers is currently putting a lot of energy into renovating a complex of houses provided by a generous donor, so that our future retreatants can settle there for three years, three months, three weeks and three days of intense practice.
There is still a lot of work to be done in order to receive retreatants. We need a new heating system and improvement of insulation, a Lhakhang, a kitchen, a water system, and some larger windows, among other things.

We are making a call to Rinpoche’s worldwide sangha and all Buddhist practitioners of any lineage to contribute, and help the group of practitioners start their retreat on time!
We invite you to take one second and reflect about the incredible amount of merit this project will bring, not only for this retreat, but for many to come. Not only for this lineage, but for any practitioner who deeply wishes to do retreat! In this time of great confusion, this is needed more than ever.
We would like to sincerely thank you all for your generous donations and support.
May the benefit of our common effort ripple infinitely and help this world for many generations.
