About 4 years ago i made a connection with a local Dag-Shang Kagyu center and its teacher Lama Rinchen Khandro. I worked and lived as a caretaker for Kagyu Tekchen Cholin's retreat center for two years where i had a chance to deepen my connection to dharma
My main practice has been Karma Kagyu influenced, mainly Ngondro, currently focusing on the guru yoga section. I have been also deeply influenced by teachers like Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Alan Wallace, Mingyur Rinpoche and Tsoknyi Rinpoche.
I have done a couple of group and personal retreats including: Retreats with Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, Tosknyi Rinpoche and Khamtrul Rinpoche, 1 month ngondro retreat, 2 month ngondro retreat and other shorter retreats.
I'm 26 years old and i have been practicing dharma for about 5 years.
My only aspiration in life is to be able to spend at least a couple of years in full time dharma study or retreat
I'm doing what i can to see this happen.
Lama Rinchen Khandro, Namkhai Norbu, Tosknyi Rinpoche, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche
In my last retreat an aspiration grew in me to deepen my connection with Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche sons. When I finished i found out that Tskonyi Rinpoche was coming to my country to teach a 3 week retreat witch is a rare opportunity that i do not want to miss.
I'm trying to sell a property. When i do ill make a donation for an offering bowl petitioner.
I have been given a 50% Scholarship for this retreat
$300 For retreat fee and Accommodations
$50 Paypal & ofering bowl fees
Any money left will be spend in travels, and food which i will try to cover myself.
