About 2019

Since the conclusion of the resident retreat period in March we are now more dedicated to accomplish various tasks and projects.

We are also looking forward to receive the statues of the 14th Künzig Shamarpa and Gendün Rinpoche which we expect for the end of April.

Furthermore, we have received the good news that Ven. Beru Khyentse Rinpoche and Drupön Nyigyam will come to visit Marfond in August and will then give transmissions on these occasions.

Events from October ´18 to March ´19

Like in the previous year we dedicated the whole month of November for an Amitabha retreat, starting with a two-week long Drubchö which was followed by another two weeks of individual Amitabha practice.  This was felt to be a precious time that we spent together and we hope to be able to repeat it in the future.

This was then followed by the annual resident retreat were we received transmissions by Lama Walli until we started with the ten days Mahakala and Sang Pujas for Tibetan New Year.

To our greatest joy we received a visit of Gendün Rinchen Rinpoche at the beginning of January. He visited the people in the Drubkhang before doing an Amitabha Tsok Puja with all of us in our big temple. We finished the evening together having a dinner in a joyful and warm atmosphere. We are very happy to see that Rinpoche is taking great interest in the activities and development of the centre.
