This is Shar Minub.
A place of practice. One of only places left where monks uphold the traditional 253 vows. A new ground for discipline and training. A place Shamarpa created to allow for authentic development in meditation and ethics.
One of my fellow travelers said the other day, “This is a place where no commitments have been broken yet. A place to go to make wishes.”
And that is what we’ll do.
If you have wishes that need making, I’m in it for all beings, and that includes you. Let me know.
