Three-Day Yoga Retreat in Nepal with Rupesh
April 29, 2013 @ 2:00 pm - May 1, 2013 @ 7:00 pm| 275 $
Every moment in our life is an opportunity to draw us towards our inner world. If we start to focus inwards, we will gradually be given realizations regarding the truth about what our life really is. Even death is an opportunity to reveal and understand the occult of life. Being in retreat can be used for this purpose. So embrace this break and use it to learn about how yoga is connected to your everyday life and transform yourself by discussing these realizations with others.
We know that everything is vibrating at a certain rate and the only reason why we see it and can interact with it is because we are vibrating at the same frequency. All through history man has struggled in life for pleasure seeking and happiness. Fighting with birth, diseases, old age and death, all has defined and predicted life and life after death. Still mystery is there.
At this retreat we will spend time seeing, listening, and feeling; thereby nurturing the consciousness of the body through the practice of natural movement and staying in asanas for extended periods of time. We will also work with regulating the breath and studying the philosophical bases of yoga. Everything expires no matter how powerful, rich, and strong it is. So before you leave your physical body, enlighten yourself. You are invited to join me to become invigorated and to renew your energy by enhancing your power and your intimacy with life itself.

Pharping has two main caves that are considered especially powerful because they are associated with Shiva (as well as the nearby Dakshinkali Temple). The caves are also associated with Guru Rinpoche, the teacher that established Buddhism in Tibet. So the whole area is key to the interesting mix of Hinduism and Buddhisme in Kathmandu.
A couple of very important contemporary Tibetan masters have been key in re-invigorating the Buddhist practice at Pharping by establishing centers there – Chagdud Tulku (recently passed away, auto-biography entitled Lord of the Dance) and Chatral Rinpoche (one of the eldest and most revered meditation masters still alive; he’s about 100). After these two set up their centres, there has a been a slew of new monasteries in the last 10-15 years. The Neydo Tashi Choling Monastery was build four years ago and is the home of H.H Ngom Neydo Karma Chagme. The monastery gives education to many monks from remote areas of Nepal.
Neydo Monastery Resort
The lamas from the monastery decided to build accommodation for visitors on the monastery premisses so that guest can learn about Buddhism and their monastery, and the income would help fund the education of the monks. The resort has spacious rooms, all with attached bathrooms, and is build in Tibetan style. The yoga hall has the view of the main monastery hall and the roof top is also a great place for morning class with a beautiful view. Kunsang, the Tibetan chef, cooks a great fusion of Tibetan, Indian and Nepali vegetarian food.
