At Tharpaland

Its been a month filled with retreats

With a daycourse and two weekend retreats

As well as our usual study programmes

Listening to Buddha’s wisdom teachings

Meditating on emptiness

and debating some of the finer points!

In between the group retreats…

work continues… on the roof

… in the office

… and in the kitchen

While outside..

Autumn has arrived

and the streams are full

Our Guru Yoga and Mandala Offering Retreat begins

Enabling us to accumulate merit

and receive blessings in preparation for the fall festival

While Prajnaparamita is filled to offer to Geshe-la

and we prepare to leave for Paris to receive Geshe-la’s wisdom teachings directly
