The annual Rigdzin Dupa retreat, the “Gathering of theVidyadharas”, (a terma of Jigme Lingpa) took place in the “new” shrine room at PPIAti Ling this year.  As yet unfinished, and without windows or doors, it is open to the fresh summer breezes from the ocean nearby.  We enjoyed having space to prepare tsok, and for  kids to join us, playing at the back of the hall while we accumulated 100,000 tsok offerings.  During breaks, we were delighted by beautiful weather and abundant flowers in the garden, and renewed the prayer flags that circle the garden.

Here is a collection of slides of the retreat…..or you can view the collection in a larger format, and down load pictures, here

Our beloved Chokyi Nyima,, who, disguised as the mild-mannered translator, Richard Barron, has done so much to bring Longchempa’s teachings to the West, has also enriched our lives immeasurably in translating for our precious lamas.  For the Red Vajrasattva drubchen at Rigdzin Ling, he translated the superb teachings of Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche.
