This November, Pranamaya returns to Neydo Tashi Monastery for a yoga and Buddhism weekend. We will combine practising yoga with an introduction in Tibetan Buddhism and meditation with the Khenpo (teacher) of the monastery. There will be a morning walk to explore the special mediation caves in the area. We will also provide a basic introduction into monastic life and Tibetan Buddhist art. Kunsang, the Tibetan Monastery chef, will cook his delicious and healthy vegetarian meals: a fusion of Tibetan, Nepali and Indian cuisines.

Yoga Teachers: Lennette and Marion.

Cost: 9,750 rupees per person on twin sharing basis.

Includes: transportation from Pranamaya Yoga Studio Patan to Pharping and back, all meals, water and tea, accommodation on twin sharing basis with attached bathroom, expert yoga teacher, dharma teacher and translator.

Departure: Saturday November 24 at 8.30 am from Patan, return to Patan on Sunday November 25 around 7 pm.

The proceeds from the accommodation go to education of monks from remote parts of Nepal.

Pharping

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.
