July 26th....Heading for Retreat....
Though we'll be at retreat for a few weeks, things back home in Poolesville will be hoppin'! This weekend marks another major holiday on the Tibetan Buddhist calendar. There will be practices and celebrations all day! Preparations for the upcoming visits from our own teacher, Jetsunma, and her root teacher, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche will continue as well.
If you want to know more about His Holiness Penor Rinpoche you can visit the Palyul website here
If you are interested in learning more about our teacher here at KPC Maryland, you can read about her
There will be teachings and empowerments offered by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche at the end of August in Maryland, so if you've had even a passing interest in learning more about the Buddhist tradition this would be a great time to plan a visit!
Of course, there is no need to be Buddhist, or even be interested in Buddhism to visit the Stupas! We've worked hard to leave the Stupas in reasonable repair, so you can enjoy them any time! I may post a cameraphone photo from retreat once or twice over the next two weeks, but this will be my last sitting infront of a full fledged computer for a while. : ) Know that even as our Stupa folk spend time learning to deepen in our practices, the Stupas themselves are always offering you blessings. It is our hope you will take some time and see them for yourselves!
