film of Bodhicharya Meditation Centre, Sikkim

Here's is a short film taken by Bruno when he visited Rinpoche's Meditation and Retreat Centre in Sikkim during December 2006 : click on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oui3YJRHLVk

Currently there are 8 people practising here long term, in the 2nd year of a 3 year retreat. There will be an article written by Pat Murphy in the upcoming Rigul Trust Newsletter.
More details of that when it is published.
Rinpoche has initiated the planting of a herb garden here to grow Himalayan Medicinal Plants. We are waiting news from Rahima who has been working on that recently with Rinpoche. The retreat is self funded in part, and in part by the Rigul Trust - but also depends upon donations - of time, money, and energy to enable the supporting projects. We hope to bring further news of this soon, including practical ways to contribute.
