Sacred Pilgrimage to India

7 September – 3 October 2019

“We can not help the past but by securing the future we are able to undo our past (karmas)” HEZR.


Thanks to those who have already shown interest and signed up for this meticulously carved pilgrimage, visiting holy places handpicked for our spiritual benefit (including Ladakh, Delhi, Varanasi, Bodhgaya, Rajgir, Darjeeling, Gangtok, Pelling, Kalimpong). For those who have just heard of this event, may you take the chance to look into it and sign up. His Eminence Zimo’g Rinpoche would like to personally invite you to join him on this special journey, delving into the beauty of the colourful Indian subcontinent where the seed of Buddhism sprung and many great masters have come. It is Nalandra’s and Zimo’g Rinpoche’s true honour to welcome you on the boat of happiness that will travel throughout the Ladakh ranges, to the holy sites of our beloved Buddha, and the sites of the marvellous second Buddha Guru Rinpoche.

This will be Rinpoche’s fifth pilgrimage tour and all the benefits will sustain the centre for sangha where teachings, study, meditation and contemplations are performed. Moreover, it will also help to build the temple of worship in the not too distant future (A western Nalandra, named after Tibet Nalandra, after Nalanda in India). It is a joint venture for oneself to visit those holy places and receive spiritual purification, and it also paves the way for Rinpoche’s good works for Dharma.

All the ends are secured for our convenience by our generous volunteer tour co-ordinator Heather Morris (Rinchen Gyalmo). It will be like one big family living and travelling in the light of loving, helping, and carrying the blessings for many lifetimes to come.

Rinpoche has granted relevant teachings such as the Four Noble Truths, 12 Deeds of Buddha and Padmasambhava etc, as well as meditations (in the mornings or evenings depending on the schedule).

The cost of hotel accommodation and tour package is very economical for this kind of unique journey, which will rewrite the history of our legends.

Please visit the brief and detailed tour itineraries and logistics pages and let us know if you’re interested. We will be more than happy to answer any questions. Please call Heather Morris on 0420 575 022 or email
