Sangha-members from Sakya Dechen Ling, Stuttgart held the first small group retreat at Sakya Changlochen Ling between 19th and 23rd May. This was a Ngöndro retreat to enable German sangha members to practise prostrations and Vajrasattva. The retreat was possible now that the new building has become fully functional with 3 new bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a well-appointed kitchen. We were able to prepare our own delicious meals ranging from traditional Nepali food to French cuisine! It was very inspiring to be able to practice in the tranquil surroundings of Changlochen and we are looking forward with great enthusiasm to returning there for the summer course with Lama Jampa Thaye in August.
