Earthquake in Northern India

 There was a 6.8 earthquake in Sikkim, Nepal and North India which lasted for over 40 seconds the epicentre of which was in Sikkim. The roads to Sikkim are badly damaged. 18 people are so far reported dead and many with injuries. Gangtok is relatively safe and none of my family and friends are affected so far. There were 3 more shocks and people lived outside all night. The extent of damage to life and buildings is not yet known as roads and mobile communication are broken to remote places.
I was going to Gangtok today from Delhi but going to Nepal till roads are open again.
We are all well.

  1. Dear Rinpoche, releived to know that you and your family are fine. I hope this situation will improve and that Sikkim and all the nearby countries will not suffer too much. I am sorry about this news. It is strange because I thought of that few days ago, remembering what happenned in Tibet.
    All my love and support if needed, YUMMA MUDRA.
