Congratulations to those of you who joined us in the recitation. Hopefully our common aspiration has been heard and as a result will bring us some good news soon. We are happy to inform you that in a joined effort we have successfully managed to recite 145.500 Om Soti prayers.



That was probably the best way to celebrate this 20th Butterlamp retreat together.

From our side the retreat went fine and as planned we went to Kechopalri lake in Sikkim to start the recitations from there.

We could do it by the lake in the small lamp house that had been built recently, keeping us warm throughout the day. It really was a lovely experience. We also offered and hung prayer flags to keep the aspirations and prayers flow into the air as long as possible



Back to Khordong Byangter Monastery we continued with the retreat while reciting the Om Soti prayer all together on daily basis for an hour. The retreat came to an end on January 14th, 2011 with a total of 115.000 butter lamps offered for the benefit of all sentient beings and the Om Soti prayers accumulation went on for another two full days.

Normal daily life started rapidly after that. Classes reopened and will continue until the preparation for the celebration of the Tibetan New Year on March 5th, 2011.
