My next trip to Europe!

Dear all,

I’ve been a tad busy lately with quite a few things. Since I’m ALWAYS sitting in my room, I don’t have many occasions to take pictures. Pity, I know, but I will resume when I’m out of here.

I’m still in our main monastery in Tsopema. I had planned to be in our other monastery in Darjeeling by now, but since my dear master is facing some eye problems in Nepal and had to postpone his return to Darjeeling to meet me, I’ve postponed my trip as well. He hopes to be done with the checkup and treatment within a month, so I guess I’ll leave for Darjeeling a bit sooner than that.

As of now, me and my attendants are scheduling my next teaching tour of Europe. Thanks to my hosts, friends, and audiences in Germany and Greece, my last tour of 2 months was a very good success (I measure success by how much of a positive change I manage to bring into people’s lives, and not by how much donations I gather!). All the centres and friends have repeatedly re-invited me, even while I was there, so I WILL return in August!

Besides Germany and Greece, I’ve received invitations from France, Holland, Spain, Denmark, Portugal, and Belgium to teach. My attendants and I are currently setting the dates and the teachings, so if anyone wishes to discuss an invitation or details about my teachings and dates, kindly email my office at ChokyongOffice@gmail.com. One of my attendants will contact asap.

I’ll write more soon, as things happen. May you all be well and happy!

Love,
CPR

Kora..

Dear all,

Hope you’ve been well. I’m fine, and still in our main monastery in Tsopema, northern India.

I went around the holy lake of Guru Rinpoche a couple of days ago, which I hadn’t done for more than 3 years!! The reason being that it’s considered good for a Tulku to remain indoors as long as possible. Well, I guess I went a little too far! 3 years is bloody long, if you think about it!

Anyway, I went round the lake (which we call ‘kora’ in Tibetan), accompanied by our senior monks and local devotees. We did lots of Guru Rinpoche mantras for world peace and well-being. Felt fantastic!! My dear attendant Phuntsok took a bunch of pictures, which I’ve uploaded onto my account on Picasa.

I would like to share them with you, so click the link below, go through them, and let me know if you like them.

Be well, and may you all live long, healthy, and happy lives!!

During my 5 day visit to a couple of centres in Athens, I took a lot of photos at the Acropolis, especially the famous Parthenon. I learnt some interesting ways of taking nice photos, which are towards the end of the album.

Dear all,
