Sep 12, 2018 - The monks of Rigde Maha Guru Monastery, at Sarjung, Samdrup Jongkhar, has entered the first ever Summer Retreat (Yarney), which was observed for 45 days starting from July 27, 2018 and concluded successfully on 09th September, 2018. The practice of Summer Retreat (Yarney) was initiated during Lord Buddha’s era himself and has been practiced to date by all sects of Buddhism without having any distortion. This particular retreat has been observed during summer to escape from committing sin of taking lives, as it is the time for beings like insects, worms, birds and many others to take birth. It also help people to accumulate merit through their generosity by making an offerings.

The objective of observing such event by RMGC at monastery is in prayers for the good health and long live of our King and their Majesties. The prayers are also made to bringing a never ending peace and harmony within the Nation and in the entire universe.

The organizer would like to thank Rinpoche for his continued guidance like rays of the sun, Mentor Khyenpo Tenzin Choeda for presiding the retreat like a waxing moon, and monks for participating zealously like a glittering stars. We also would like to thank the sponsors for their generous support like an ocean full of pearls.

Let us all work even more and commit towards making a happy days ahead!
