Rinpoche, Teachings and Temple
At the end of August we concluded our 2019 seminar with Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche. Rinpoche inspired and instructed new-comers and rejuvenated and opened the hearts of experienced practitioners, with practical and applicable guidance instructions on the entire path. The seminar unfolded and all was simply perfect. Gomde made many new friends and supporters. We hope that you will all return again and again to your spiritual home located on the magical island kingdom of Lindholme.

May we recognise the amazing benefits of not harming others.
May we take to heart karma cause and effect.
May effortless kindness unfold in us all.
May we see that the start of liberation is having the freedom to not follow after our own thoughts.
