The dark cabin was the first building project the community took on, the year was 1983. It is located half way between the School House and Khandroling on private land. The reason for this is because Rinpoche said "Yang-ti is a little secret and needs a place were it can be protected."
The cabin has 4 rooms with electric heat, futons and a flush toilet, and is easily accessible.
No cooking, no candles, no incense. Bring a thermos if you require hot water for herbal tea. It is not good to use caffeine while doing Yang-ti practice.
