A Moment of Peace for You
We receive requests for prayers daily. Thinking of the many hardships occurring in so many lives, we send aspirations for the release of all beings from suffering in our meditations. We are also inspired to to send you a moment of peace from the nunnery grounds, as though you were walking with us on the new contemplative path.
This is definitely an amateur video - but new technology made it possible for Ani Yeshe to film a portion of the path, and with added help, we inserted Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen's beautiful chanting.
Be sure to turn on your sound.
We are very pleased to announce
that we are now formally affiliated with
Drikung Samtenling Nunnery
of the Drikung Kagyu Institute
in Dhera Dunn, India.
