Participate in the Rainy Season Retreat — Kagyu Tekchen, India

Please join Acharya Choying Gyurme and Rigpe Dorje Centre  in making an offering for the ongoing Rainy Season Retreat (Vassa) at Lava Kagyu Tekchen Ling, His Eminence Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche’s Monastery and Seat in India. This traditional annual event dates back to the time of the Buddha. Observed during the monsoon season, monks gather for intensive prayer to generate spiritual energy for the benefit of all beings and global well-being.  

We can show our gratitude and support to the monks with a collective offering for food and tea and needed provisions for the retreat. In fact, this kind of participation was recommended by the Buddha to the lay communities at that time. In this way, we contribute our drops of devotion to the vast ocean of blessings engendered by this retreat. 

Offerings, whatever amount, are welcome. Please make cheques payable to Rigpe Dorje Foundation. PayPal is available at
