Support Gomde Ukraine

What's happening at Gomde Ukraine? Our doors are open again, and we are looking forward to meeting our dear Dharma siblings to receive precious teachings and practice together. We extend our deep gratitude to all of you who keep our Ukrainian community in their hearts and prayers, and we are especially thankful to Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California for their unceasing support and care, as well as our kind Lithuanian patrons and many individual donors. It is with all your generous donations that we were able to provide personal financial support to our sangha members who were affected by the ongoing war the most. And thanks to your continuous contributions we are now able to host on-site events this and next month, providing participants with free accommodation, delicious vegetarian home-made food, and Ukrainian translation of the teachings. August 25 - September 4: we will gather at Gomde Ukraine to watch Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche's 8-day teachings live-streamed from Gomde Austria. In-between the teaching sessions we will engage in group and individual meditation practices, sang and tsok offerings. August 20-21, September 13-17: Ukrainian participants of Bodhi Training program taught by Erik Pema Kunsang will come together at Gomde Ukraine to receive the teachings online, contemplate, discuss, and put them into practice together. Again, meals and accommodation will be free of charge. Gomde Ukraine is a retreat center of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, that is maintained with offerings and donations of our community members and fellow sanghas. You are also welcome to contribute and thus help us create comfortable conditions for the Dharma practice, free meals and accommodation at our Gomde for Ukrainian practitioners. Many of them are facing serious difficulties and are on the verge of survival, having lost their loved ones, their jobs and homes at these terrible times of war. To support …

Plan 2020 – restoring the first building at Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s retreat center

After 3 years of hard work in a retreat centre of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche we understood that we can't just wave a wand to build the temple and ayurvedic sanatorium. Building process lingers. But we don't want to leave such a powerful and sacred land without any care until we don't find a proper funding. That's why we decided to revitalize this place right at the beginning of the next year. See details of our plan below.

Sādhana Ritual Course 2018. November 29 – December 22

Samye Institute has announced its ninth annual Sādhana Ritual Course This course will focus on the Trinley Nyingpo and Pema Khandro sādhana practices from the lineage of the New Treasures of Chokgyur Lingpa (Chokling Tersar). The main points of practice, including ritual traditions of chant melodies, mudrās, torma, shrine arrangements, and musical instruments, will be taught in Tibetan by Lama Sherab Dorje, a senior lama of Ka-nying Shedrub Ling monastery, and translated into English. Main objective is for non-Tibetan practitioners to be able to learn and practice the Vajrayāna ritual tradition in a genuine and thorough way. The Tukdrup Trinley Nyingpo sādhana (the Yoga of Essential Activity from Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of All Obstacles) and the Pema Khandro (from the Three Roots of the Profundity of Longevity Cycle) are both deeply profound practices that were revealed by the Great Treasure Revealer, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. The Trinley Nyingpo is the condensed sādhana for the accomplishment of the twelve manifestations of Guru Rinpoche according to Accomplishing the Guru’s Wisdom Mind, Dispeller of all Obstacles (Tukdrup Barchey Künsel). The Pema Khandro is the magnetizing ḍākinī practice belonging to theThree Roots of the Profundity of Longevity Cycle, among the Seven Cycles of Profundity (Zabpa Khordün).
