“The Shower of Blessings

Full Pilmgrimage Depart ZA Friday 23 December. Return ZA Sunday 15 January 2012.
At beautiful Bodhicharya retreat centre, Sikkim, near Rumtek
(Pilgrimage dates slightly flexible; retreats dates are fixed)
Retreat: 16 people only each in single meditation room with med box!

 “The Shower of Blessings” is the theme of this Vajrayana retreat.
This is a guru yoga developed from the seven-line wish prayer of Guru Rinpoche
authored by Mipham Rinpoche (one of Ringu Tulku’s own practices).

How wonderful to have Christmas in Delhi – with the possibility of an audience with
HH Karmapa during the Karmapa 900 closing ceremonies.
And the New Year 2012 blossoms with showers of blessings and aspirations in Sikkim ─
– a beyul for powerful spiritual practice predicted never to be invaded by the violence of the world.

Travel by jeep through spectacular Teesta river pass
to remote magical monasteries and sacred Guru Rinpoche caves
with backdrop majestic Kanchendzonga 3rd highest Himalayan peak –
symbolising the immensity, beauty, incomprehensibility, and sacredness of our planet.
Enjoy the natural beauty of Gangtok clinging to steep slopes with its floral paradise & art & crafts,
and shopping in pictureseque Darjeeling, amidst tea plantations.

Pilgrimage orchestrated by Erika van Greunen who has led groups to India for many years.

  1. Margaret may be you can answer me , I am very pleased with the theme of the retreat, ” The Shower of blessings” because, as many other students I’m saying this prayer for the paranirvana of Kyabje Trulshik Rinpoche, unfortunetly I can not go to Sikkim, do you think is possible to post the teatchings in Bodhisharya after the retreat?
    with many thanks for your work and dedication

    1. Paula, I don’t know if the teachings will be recorded but I can find out for you and whether it will be possible to make them available to others or not.

      Best wishes,
      Margaret ford
