Nalandra finished the year’s activities with a highly successful Grand Mahakala Puja on 16-18 December. We thank Zim’og Rinpoche for an immensely productive year of teachings, meditations, tsoks and special events including a Vajrasattva retreat, Padmasambhava empowerment, spiritual journey to the Padma Retreat Centre in India and pilgrimage to the holy places of the Buddha in India and Nepal. Thanks also to Venerable Hojun for teaching calm abiding meditation and leading regular meditation sessions, and to Tsering Dorje for running a Tibetan language course. It has been a year packed with rich spiritual teachings that have brought great benefit to Rinpoche’s students and all beings. May he live long so we can continue to benefit from his teachings! We look forward to another productive year in 2017.
