Disheartening Blow

This is a short note to inform you all that between the happy times of Holi and the auspicious day of our Life release event the gompa got hit by a disheartening blow.

An extremely strong wind blew all night on March 28th, accompanied with ligthning, thunder and hailstorm.

As a result as you can see on the photo album, trees got broken into half, fruits fell on the floor, Kitchens' roof went missing and above all one of the 2 Deers standing on both side of the Dharma wheel on the roof of the Gompa got pulled out of its basis and sent to the floor.

Luckily there has been no human nor animal casualties at Khordong Byangter Monastery, but in the morning it really was a disheartening sight.

Lamas and staff spent all day collecting debris and clearing around. On the next day Tulku Ugen brought the Deer for repair. It will take time before all falls back in place.

Tsethar on Dakini Day - April 2nd 2016

Hello everyone,

Photo album Tsethar 2016

Here is Tulku Ugen's write-up about our wonderful annual life release event 'Tsethar':

"Yesterday, on the auspicious Dakini day we have released approx 250 kilos of life fishes like koi, taki, Singi and guchia/bam (eel). There was no way to count them while releasing but to my estimate, all together we have released between 75 to 80 000 fishes.

It was even very auspicious as we started our puja, a number of butterflies took their maiden flight from the aquatic plants. I hope someone could have captured them in their smartphones so we could have shared that beautiful sight with you. The polish couple, Mr. Marek and Anne were extremely happy to see and participate in the event.

The event was completed with breakfast near the barrage and soft drinks. We received kind cooperation from the supervisor of the dam and his staff. 

OM AA HUNG BENDZA GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUNG. May all the fishes enjoy freedom , happiness, long life . May all of them have fortune of free water to swim, live freely without any fishermen; without polluted water and enjoy their pristine life.

We would like to thank all the sponsors for the event. May the merit of dedicating the act of life release be enjoyed by all whose health , happiness and longevity were wished and prayed for. I wish and pray that all of us can dedicate more virtuous act in this life and make our lives meaningful. 

Thank you again for all our Zindags for their kindness and I hope we may be able to do so again in near future. Sarva Mangalam."

Tulku Ugen
