The Los Angeles center Chagdud Gonpa Thupten Ling is hosting Jigme Tromge Rinpoche from Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd October 2017, for a series of teachings and empowerments for bodhicitta, Guru Rinpoche, Riwo Sangchod, Vajrasattva, Vajrakilaya and Protectors. All are welcome.

On October 27th and 28th, Lama Padma will be giving teachings on Red Tara in the Bay Area. These teachings will be primarily for sangha who want to learn more and deepen the practice they established with Lama Tsering earlier this year.

From November 2nd – 10th, Rigdzin Ling will host four sets of Nyung Nays. The practice of the fasting ritual is an easy yet powerful means to clear away obstacles to physical and mental well-being. It brings the practitioner to the essence of the supreme secret of Chenrezig, the compassionate expression of all buddhas.

Join us December 17th at Chagdud Gonpa for a celebration commemorating Winter Solstice. We will conduct a traditional Buddhist smoke offering (Riwo Sangchod) and light hundreds of butterlamps, marking the turning away of darkness and beginning of the return of light.

The Helena Fire has now been contained, the evacuation has been lifted and the roads in and out of the area are open. The sky over Rigdzin Ling is clear, the temperature is cool and there have been light rain showers now and then. The fire did not cross into the Rigdzin Ling boundaries. Thank you for your prayers and please continue to hold the local community in your hearts. Many people are still suffering from losing their homes and possessions.
