In November 1997 Rinpoche spent again a week of retreat with an international group in the Halscheid Retreat center Karma Thekchen Yi Ong Ling.
The main focus were explanations and group practice of the Medicine Buddha Sadhana.
Additionally there were Ngöndro practice sessions in the mornings, to complete as a group the accumulation of 4 x 100.000, that had begun the year before. The last numbers of Mandala offerings were added and the goal was reached.
The recordings include long sessions of reciting together, interspersed with explanations and many discussions. Again it is a relaxed and joyous atmosphere.
