A new Three-year retreat begins


Due to Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's constant endeavor, a large temple structure was built around the Asura Cave of Padmasambhava. It is now continued and has been enlarged by Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. Many groups of monks and many other people have since then been in the traditional three year retreat at this sacred location. Here you see one such group about to enter.

Dear Erik,

Could you please share, if possible, what the three year retreat program in the Choklig Tersar tradition usually consists of? Is it the same as in other Nyingma tradtions?

Great picture, of great people, thank you. May the merit of their endouvor be boundless!

The program is pretty much the same in all the traditions: one year of preliminary practices, one year yidam sadhana and one year the inner tantras.
