Dechen Summer Retreat 2012

The annual summer retreat at Sakya Changlochen Ling in France began on 19th August, when Lama Jampa Thaye started teaching Sakya Pandita’s renowned work “Elucidating the Thought of the Sage”.
Over 80 people gathered daily to hear this seminal text which clarifies the essential Buddhist teachings, tracing them back to their original sources. The first part of the teaching concluded on 24th August, and Lama Jampa will continue to teach this text next year.
The retreat is continuing until 31st August with daily meditation practice sessions on White Tara.
For most of the attendees, this was their first chance to see the considerable development of the property over the last two years, which has been supported so generously by members of the Dechen Community and beyond.
