!Cancellation of events with Jigme Rinpoche

"If you are able to accept unexpected adverse circumstances as an aid in training the mind without focusing too much on them, it means that you have achieved mastery."
Jamgon Kongtrul

Dear friends, due to the fact that Jigme Rinpoche was diagnosed with pneumonia, we have to cancel the retreat and the instructor course in May.
Rinpoche's health is stable, but excludes any stress. And there are plans for another visit to Russia in September, during which a retreat and training of instructors will take place.

If possible, dedicate your practices to improving your well-being and speedy recovery to Jigme Rinpoche.
