After the Khondros Retreat
I just returned from a retreat on the Dzogchen pith instructions of the khondros (dakinis). I have much catching up to do in this journal (and elsewhere).
The most amazing moment on this weekend retreat was when I was walking across a long lawn to the dining hall, and I looked up and saw Khenpo Tenpa Yungdrung Rinpoche standing on the roof of the dining hall. He looked right at me, and then slowly deeply bowed to me. This reverence and humility humbled me. It was one of those moments one never forgets. This was a retreat on the teachings of the lineage of enlightened women, the khondros, and his gentleman, the abbott of Triten Norbutse Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal, was the teacher.
