Memorable Takshang Visit

Apr 12, 2015 - A large number of practitioners of RMGC group from Thimphu, with more than 50 members visited Takshang on Sun April 5 along with the holy presence of H. E. Rinpoche.

The journey started early morning from Thimphu and all practitioners gathered at the base of Takshang for the morning tea and snacks. The visit is memorable, auspicious and special of its kind that set a milestone in the history of RMGC. The visit is more special because of our venerable Rinpoche's presence that provided all of us the significance and essence of the visit to pay homage to one of the greatest Guru Rinpoche who built Takshang Gonpa in the 7th century A.D. on the cliff of a high altitude mountain.

Each practitioners prepared their own packed lunch so that we can relish and enjoy one another's 'Pot luck lunch', while we bunch of few practitioners been parasites to our practitioners who brought the packed food :)

This was our first trip to Takshang and we practiced together under the guidance of respected H. E. Rinpoche.


Jan 13, 2015 - RMGC coordination/board meeting was conducted on 2015-01-10 in which all the Dzongkhag representatives attended the meeting. The meeting was graced by H.E. Jigme Rigdzin Rinpoche and it was very successful.

The board members discussed several agenda items that includes construction of Tshokhang and other constructions in the Gonpa. The roadmap for 2015 is discussed.


Jan 13, 2015 - For your kind information, Rigde Maha Guru Monastery finally has access to motor road till Sarjung Goenpa..This is the latest development. In fact, we saw it happening soon after all the practitioners came out of the Retreat Program on Jan 6.
