OBJET: REPORT DES PROGRAMMES RIGPE DORJE DE L’AN 2020 À L’ANNÉE 2021
Dear Friends in the Dharma,
Venerable Drupon Khenpo Lodro Namgyal and our sangha at Pullahari and Kagyu Thekchen Ling monasteries are praying for all the fatalities and patients of CoVid-19, and all people, animals, our world and sentient beings in this difficult time. We hope our message finds you, your family and close ones well and safe.
After much thought, we have decided to postpone this year’s Rigpe Dorje Philosophy and Meditation programs to next year, 2021. The dates will be:
October 2 – 31, 2021 Rigpe Dorje PHILOSOPHY Program
November 7 – 17, 2021 Rigpe Dorje MEDITATION Program
Payments for registrations for the 2020 Programs that are already received by our office will be brought forward to 2021. Please contact us if you wish to cancel.
The decision to postpone the programs was made after much thought. We anticipate that it will take time for many countries to recover from the trauma of the CoVid-19 pandemic and the consequences of the lockdowns in transportation, trade, supplies etc.
The lockdown in Nepal that began on March 24 is now extended to April 30, 2020. Though there are relatively few reported cases of CoVid-19 so far, communities, monasteries and people in Nepal are observing the lockdown with good discipline.
Attached are some pictures of the activities going on in our monastery and at the Home.
We pray that we the pandemic will end soon. Until then, THINK OF OTHERS AND KEEP SAFE.
Yours in Dharma,
Khenpo Chokey Gyaltsen
