Kangyur Recitation Preparation

Hello everyone,

It is all happening at the same time. In the past two days shopping was made in Kalimpong, bed rolls, dining tables and necessary electrical fittings have been sorted out.Workload has been distributed to each and everyone at the Gompa, despite Bengal general strike yesterday.

Food shopping was made today in Siliguri.

The group from Taktse Shedra  will arrive tomorrow morning and will help coordinate the last necessary preparations in the Gompa. Many Butterlamps will be ready for offering.

The new Kitchen is operational and ready to cook for everyone. A plastic roof will be pitched in front of the gompa for visitors to relax i the shade. Tea and juice will be served.

We are few hundreds euro away from sealing the budget. If you wish to support please contact us at chhimedrigdzinsociety@gmail.com

It is a wonderful feeling to know this recitation will be taking place.

Sarwa Mangalam,
