Here you can see the retreat house project (a view from east, west, main plan and views from different sides). It is a small house of 20m2 of size, including kitchen corner and bathroom. It also has a terrasse in front of the house. The house is planned in a way that is suitable for a cold climate (water system enter into the house from one place in the middle – as the house has a beam foundation, water pipes have to be insulated in a special way. If there are more donations that allow to build a bigger house, it is possible to change everything (add beams for a foundation etc). The room plan is not fixed – it is possible to move inside walls (probably the meditation room has to be bigger, kitchen and bathroom can be smaller). Construction of the foundations will start next week (from the 16th of December). We are very grateful for the donations we have received up to now. We have also received one bigger donation specially for kitchen. However, lot of donations is still necessary. Please use this great chance to practice generosity!

In the middle of November 2019, Khenpo Karma Wangyel visited again the construction site of the future retreat center. The final decision about the construction works was made – it is faster to build individual retreat houses for practitioners with a temple hall that can be built later. If in the beginning only the retreat houses and a kitchen will be built, the first group of retreatants can start their three-year retreat in the beginning of 2021.
As of December 10th 2019, we have got two offers for the construction of the houses and we are waiting for the third offer and a sketch of the house. There is enough money now to start the foundation works and place the order of the deep drilled well. A rough price for one retreat house will be around 10,000 euros. As soon as it is clear which company we will use, we can present here a detailed list of works and the exact cost of every step.
GURU RINPOCHE EMPOWERMENT and FEAST PRACTICE (tsokkor)
Let us come together
and transform the future Yeshe Khorlo’s three-year retreat center’s land into
Zangdokpalri – Guru Rinpoche’s abode. It is said that this can be done
specifically through the practice of tsok offering (feast offering).

Pema Lingpa’s Sangha Officially Registered
In order to fulfill the objectives of Gangteng Rinpoche in Europe and in Estonia, the students of Rinpoche first created a non-profit association Yeshe Khorlo Eesti in Estonia in 2016.
However, as a non-profit association cannot organise the coming of the resident teacher in Estonia, an official Sangha (Pema Lingpa’s Sangha) had to be registered as this procedure falls within the competence of the Sangha. That was was done on the 7th January 2019. As of January 2019, the Sangha has 12 members.
