Dear Friends of H.H. Chhimed Rigdzin Rinpoche

Since Rinpoche was travelling through Europe quiet a long time and many of us enjoyed the wonderful opportunity to meet Him, to receive initiations, teachings and to practice together with Him, He now has returned to India. He is quiet well after the difficulties of travelling.

He is invited for consecration of a temple of the Mahabodhi society in Lumbini/Nepal on the 8th November. Afterwards He is planing to go to Kathmandu.


The building of the Gompa is delayed because of the long rain season (it wasn't possible to deliver material) and other difficulties. The walls are ready in a raw form. Now the work on the ceiling is going on day and night and also the round for the prayer wheels is just build.

But the consecration still will be on the newmoon-day of 25th December 2000
