As you know now, the Butterlamp retreat will be taking place from January 10th to January 27th, 2014 at KBM-Khordong Bjangter Monastery

So far we have received 60% of the necessary funds to sponsor the expenses of the Dalda (butter). If you wish to participate financially to make this 23rd Butterlamp retreat possible, please contact us directly via email at the society’s address.

Regarding the accommodation, as you may already know the gompa has a 10 rooms pilgrim's house to receive you. The allowance of the rooms is made on a first come first served basis and it can be confirmed through email.

Cost of leaving is India is constantly getting higher; hence the cost of the retreat as well as the cost of the guesthouse will have to be revised on last year's charges basis.

Also, as the year is coming to an end, please remember to renew your sponsorship of the young monks and their teacher. This annual sponsorship is very important to allow the Chhimed Rigdzin Society to cover the basic costs of their stay and education at KBM-Khordong Byangter Monastery.

Sarwa Mangalam.
