As every year we are going to perform the long puja of Dorje Phagmo (Dorje Phagmo Drubtab).
NOTE: Due to very big amount of work connected with preparations to fill the statue and stupa, we have decided to perform Dorje Phagmo puja in traditional way with painted mandala and without fire puja. Therefore, there will be no sand mandala this year. Because of that, we start the practice on Friday the third of July, at 9.00 a.m.
Please register in advance (see registration form), preferably before the 23th of June 2015.
One of the most important Buddhist holidays - Saga Dawa Düchen, the day of the Enlightenment and Paranirvana of Shakyamuni Buddha ( this year it was the 2nd of June), as well as few next day we spent on preparations of the substances and filling with them the Naga vases.

Since the early spring the construction works on stupa and lhakhang have been done. The interior of the lhakhang has already been plastered and initially painted. The whole floor has been casted. The part of the lhakhang with the shrine, where the main Buddha statue will be placed, has also been prepared. In the middle of May Lama Gelek came from Kathmandu. He is supervising the filling of the statue and the stupa.
