Portal in Time
We took a major leap back in time to perform rituals, prayers, visualizations and offerings at sacred sites just as pilgrims have done for centuries.
The pilgrimage included a retreat with Geshe Tenzin Zopa on Atisha’s Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment at Kopan Monastery. It concluded with the group taking refuge and Bodhisattva vows under the iconic gaze of the Boudhanath Stupa.
