We are still not open for overnight visitors to the retreat center and expect that we will not open this year. You may visit the center during the day but please follow the following rules:
1) Phone us before coming. We need to stagger the arrival of any visitors who might go to the temple as we are not permitted to have gatherings on site.
We are not posting the Zoom link online to prevent so-called "Zoom Bombers."
As a result, we need to ask you to use the "Contact Us" form at the top of this page and ask for the Zoom link.
Apologies for any inconvenience!
No publicamos el enlace Zoom en línea para evitar los llamados "Zoom Bombers".

Oh my dear brothers and sisters of the world. Now it is time to work together to do what we can do to fight this coronavirus as it is affecting people globally. Looking into world history, this pandemic is not the first. There was the plague in 1720, a cholera pandemic in 1820, the flu pandemic in 1920, and SARS in 2003. With this past experience, we need to be more aware and try to correct ourselves now, because this is a result of the collective negative deeds of humankind. We have to remind ourselves what we have done in the past to each other, including the killing and torturing of animals, thereby emotionally creating problems in the world. This pandemic is the result of our negative actions.
We are happy to be able to offer you Rigdzin Dupa (Guru) and Yumkha (Dakini) tsog texts for those who participate in Tsog in their local temple or practice at home. Please note that these texts are the upstate version (not PCDO/NYC in use online by Lama Pasang Tenzin).
