Blessings are Connected

“I would just like to recommend to people who haven’t visited Pema Osel Ling to do so. The community there is very kind and helpful. If you can do the annual ngondro retreat at least once, that would be good because there’s so much practical instruction.

We’re so lucky to have a place like this to go to where the teachings are very accessible and delivered with such care. I recently returned from teachings there and each day since I’ve had moments of realizing, in new ways, how many blessings are connected to this community and what the lamas have set up.” ~ Paul
