About This Event
In accordance with the wishes of Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Gomde California will hold a very special retreat this summer on our primary Guru Rinpoche practice, the Trinley Nyingpo. Our esteemed resident teacher and senior monk at Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling, Lama Tsultrim Sangpo, will lead this 35-day retreat.
Last year’s seminar with Lama Tsultrim Sangpo took us into the intricacies of deity practice through this special sadhana from the Tukdrub Barche Kunsel, The Heart Practice that Dispels all Obstacles. We had the opportunity to refine our understanding of Vajrayana through Lama Tsultrim’s clarifying instructions on visualization, mantra recitation, and ritual practice. Now we invite everyone to put their learning into practice and attend Gomde California’s first annual 35-day retreat program.
The blessings and power of carrying out a Trinley Nyingpo retreat cannot be stated. This is an opportunity for the Gomde California sangha to engage in authentic, committed practice with an extraordinary and accomplished retreat master.
This retreat is open to everyone, but we ask that all participants stay through the entire length of the program. Bringing together all of the conditions to offer a retreat like this involves significant costs; however, because we feel that this retreat will benefit the attendees and our community in wonderful ways, Gomde California is offering the program at a significantly reduced rate.
May this precious opportunity swiftly give rise to the clarity and compassion of the Buddha’s realization.
Dates will soon be provided, and registration will open end of March.
“There are incredible dharma blessings in every particle of Gomde … Such a spot is very, very rare to encounter in the world. The environment itself brings a great deal of peace and blessings to meditators here.” – Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
Venue HighlightsGomde is located just off Highway 101 on the outskirts of the small town of Leggett, three and a half hours drive north of San Francisco. The beautiful Eel River winds through 250 acres of woodlands, meadows and bluffs, forming several very welcome swimming holes along its course. Peaceful walking trails meander through forests of fir, madrone, redwood and oak, opening onto stunning vistas of rugged beauty.
We offer Summer seminars with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche, Phakchok Rinpoche and other beloved teachers. Gomde is also home to the Dharmachakara Translation Center, accredited through the Kathmandu University. DTC offers translator training and residencies.
