Today I received total of 3 flyers in the mail for the upcoming 2006 Summer retreat at Palyul Upstate Retreat Center.http://retreat.palyul.org
Here is a memory from 2004:
During 2004 retreat at Palyul Upstate Retreat Center many people were thinking about weather, as retreat took place one month late then usual, several quite chilly nights were inevitable. Here is a picture of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche during one of the very last days of that retreat. I personally find this picture to be great source of ease and comfort.
An offering of aspirational prayer:
“In all lifetimes, may I never be separated from perfectly pure guru,
Utilizing the glorious Dharma to its utmost,
And by excellently perfecting all pure qualities on the stages and paths.
May I swiftly achieve the state of the Glorious Lama!”
