Please do not visit the monastery if you feel unwell and/or have a fever.  We look forward to your visit when you feel better. 



The PTC sangha will be chanting a special longevity practice, Tsedrup Sangdu, dedicated to the long life and good health of our precious Guru Vajradhara His Holiness Chamgon Kenting Tai Situpa, for his Dharma activity and removal of all obstacles. This sadhana is a terma (hidden teaching) revealed by the great Tertön (treasure revealer) Ratna Lingpa.
