We Need Your Help! At the beginning of every summer, Rangjung Yeshe Gomde California holds an Annual Work Week to prepare for the summer seminar season. Our Sangha is very fortunate that this year Gomde will be hosting Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Tsikey Chokling Rinpoche, Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, and Khandro Rinpoche. Also, Lama Tsultrim Sangpo will be leading Buddhist Studies and Individual Retreat programs throughout the summer.
Projects and Tasks we hope to accomplish this Work Week include:
- Setting up the dining tent and furnishings
- Cleaning the Shrine room and carpet
- Cleaning and organizing kitchen and back porch
- Deep cleaning Lama House and other houses
- Work in the garden and campground
- Setting up tent cabins with furniture
- Starting to clean out the barn
- Organizing the office
This year, Work Week starts Friday, May 19th in the afternoon and ends Sunday, May 28th at noon. Volunteers may come up at any time, for any length of stay, and will receive free room and board and accumulate merit. Lama Kunzang will lead daily practices during this wonderful opportunity to combine practice, work for the Dharma, and Sangha participation. Plus it’s great fun!
Those who participate for 4 days or more will be offered a 2-day personal retreat here at Gomde on the date of their choice between November and May.
For more information or to sign up please email email@example.com. Let us know if you have any special skills like carpentry, etc. or if there are particular projects you want to work on.
We look forward to seeing you and practicing and working together,
