Karma Yoga Tasks for 2013 Retreats

Karma Yoga Tasks for 2013 Retreat

Hello Dear Vajra Family,The offering of one's energy in service to the Teachings is a wonderful practice that integrates body, speech and mind while creating many causes for our community to flourish and benefit ourselves and others. It is also a necessary force for the care, maintenance, and flourishing of Tsegyalgar East especially now as we still have much to do to prepare for the Retreat with our deeply-loved Guru Choegyal Namkhai Norbu. This is an opportunity for us to demonstrate our appreciation for his endless Guru activity in traveling the world to bring the precious Dzogchen Teachings to us and so many.  His vision inspired this wonderful Gar which we nurture with our activity of caring for it.Please join us in preparing for his arrival and the Retreat by contacting Dave at geko@tsegyalgar.org413-230-8305  to help with any of the following tasks.  Thank you.
