Pilgrimage to Dzogchen - Retreat Houses

Before the communist take-over there were several small retreat centres around Pema Tung and in the forest above. One of these overlooked the meadows of Pema Tung. Here retreatants would stay for a minimum of three years, three months and three days.  During this time they practised the Heart Essence of the Dakini teachings. Through these retreats a total of thirteen masters achieved the rainbow body, a sure sign of having attained enlightenment. The blessings of so many enlightened masters makes Dzogchen a very special place indeed.
