Festival of Lights and the 24th Butterlamp retreat announcement

Hello Everyone,

Today the whole of India celebrates Diwali- the festival of lights.
It is also a day during which dogs are honored.
So in Khordong Byangter Monastery and at Tulku Ugen Chencho's house both were celebrated.

Dogs got a treat with nice sandwiches and got offered with a flowers necklace.

Chhimed Rigzin Rinpoche's Stupa got prepared all day to be illuminated for the night.

We shall take the opportunity of this day full of light to announce:

The 24th Butterlamp Retreat at Khordong Byangter Monastery from December 31st, 2014 to January 15th, 2015.

Please note that from this year onwards the schedule of the retreat shall always start on the 10th day of the tibetan 11th month and end on the 25th day of the same month.

Over this 15 days period all 111,111 butterlamps shall be duly offered.
As every year sponsorship to purchase the Dalda to fill up the lamps, to purchase the wood to melt the Dalda and cook for the participants and to purchase the Tsog offerings are very much needed.

Please contact us if you plan to participate or sponsor the 24th butterlamps retreat.
Bookings for accommodation at the Pilgrims' house are open .
