Shenten Dargye Ling
As the current situation prohibits travel, it was settled that the retreat on Twenty One Nails would still take place but in a different form, via zoom streaming. Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche will be teaching from Triten Norbutse in Kathmandu.
To bring support to our Sangha and to everyone interested in practicing during these challenging times, Shenten Dargye Ling is offering daily online practice sessions led by Khenpo Gelek Jinpa every day from 5PM to 6 PM (Paris time, France, UTC+1) starting Wednesday, March 25th.

This retreat, with the very knowledgeable teacher, Geshe Samten Tsukphud, is highly recommended to everyone, both experienced students and those new to Yungdrung Bon.
