Holidays with Khenpo Gyurme

The Yongey Buddhist Center has been blessed this holiday season with the visit of Khenpo Gyurme, Principal of Rinpoche’s Tergar Osel Ling Monastery in Kathmandu.  Khenpo’s arrival was celebrated with members and friends at a welcome dinner on the 19th.  The following Sunday, Khenpo Gyurme helped celebrate Amitabha’s Birthday by conducting the chanting practice and giving an open talk on Amitabha Buddha and the significance of Karma.

On Christmas Day, Khenpo attended the Center’s annual Christmas Party and helped celebrate the joyful holiday season over delicious food with members and friends.  Following Christmas, a trip was made up to Pal Karma Dorje Dzingpa Ling in Northern California to visit the Enlightenment Stupa and enjoy the sunny winter weather.

After the holidays, Khenpo Gyurme will be returning to Rinpoche’s monastery in Kathmandu where he will be starting the New Year’s teaching program for the student lamas. We are extremely grateful for Khenpo Gyurme’s time and effort in visiting the Yongey Buddhist Center and for his special guidance and teachings while here.
