Jacob Ewers May 25, 2020Very wonderful!
Thank you so much for being open guys! Buddhism is a great place to learn how to control your mind and develop positive thoughts and emotions while transforming negative ones. Tibetan Buddhism is really something special, I hope everyone has a chance to encounter it in their lives. I first took up lessons from the Tibetan master, Lama Jigme Namgyal Rinpoche in Las Vegas, I have been enjoying it every since. Having a good retreat center like this is indeed good for practice.
