The Wednesday evening of the week-long craft retreat at Aro Khalding Tsang (the home of Ngala Nor’dzin and Ngala ’ö-Dzin) saw the re-painting of the shrineroom almost complete. This was fortunate, as Wednesday evening was the only evening when all members of Ngala Nor’dzin and Ngala ’ö-Dzin’s sangha were together, as several people were only able to be at part of the nine day retreat. It was wonderful to be together in the shrine room for an evening of practice – a marvellous opportunity for inspiration and transmission. Ngala Nor’dzin and Ngala ’ö-Dzin gave transmission of Shintu Mélong Zabmo. It also meant that we were able to practice tsog feast together on Thursday morning.
