Explore “Little Tibet”
This two week pilgrimage offers an intensive immersion into Tibetan Buddhism in Ladakh aka “Little Tibet”. Survey ancient monasteries, meet traditional healers, oracles and monks, receive powerful teachings from a revered lama and settle into a retreat in a remote village in the high Himalayas.
Our journey coincides with the auspicious teachings of the 104th Ganden Tripa, H.E. Tri Rinpoche, head of the Gelugpa order of Tibetan Buddhism. Over the course of several days we will receive transmission of the Three Principal Paths and the Yamataka initiation.
