Summer Retreat( དབྱར་གནས) from 27th july till 9th sep 2018.

Jul 27, 2018 - For the first time in the history of Rigde Maha Guru Monastery, the monks of Gonpa is observing a Summer Retreat(དབྱར་གནས) which is scheduled from 27th July till 9th September. This tradition of observing retreat annually was instituted by Lord Buddha himself and started thereafter. As it became difficult to travel for alm begging for Buddha and sangha community during monsoon season and to minimize the trouble it may cause to the minute creatures while walking, Buddha framed this program of observing such retreat bound by strict discipline. It gives sangha a quality time to learn , meditate and contemplate. It is also a great opportunity for dharma benefactors to accumulate immeasurable merits by offering meals and other necessities to the monks by personally going to their residence.
