The Tsegyalgar Summer Sangha Retreat took place from 7/15/21–7/24/21 at Khandroling in Buckland, Massachusetts. We were linked with our primary dance instructor, Prima Mai, Merigar West, as well as Jampaling, Padmaling, Thadraline, Sangyeling, Kunsangar North and South, Dzamling Gar, Thuy Nguyen, Natalia Makarova, Ruslan Kim and Petra Zezulkova. For many of us, it was our first experience of practicing in the same moment in time with our Global Dzogchen Community.
Tsegyalgar East's Summer Sangha Retreat on Khandroling, the Land of the Dakinis, July 15 - 24, 2021

In July, over forty of us from near and far gathered at the Sacred Ground of Khandroling in Buckland, Massachusetts to take part in a 10-day multi-faced retreat. Arriving, I experienced four (almost forgotten) joys: seeing cars and realizing we were together again, greeting vajra sisters and brothers with actual hugs, practicing in person rather than online, and experiencing the power that group practice creates.

The Life and Works of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
| Liz Granger: The Mirror
Chögyal the Dharma King, Namkhai Norbu Jewel of All Space, was born a special person. He was not a common man. He brought from his past lives a great wealth of virtue, wisdom, and merits and transmitted authentic lineage treasures of Tibetan Buddhism, sharing genuine living teachings with very fortunate students in the modern world. He was highly learned in every aspect of Tibetan culture, history, and all academic subjects, as well as the holder of an inestimable heritage of Bön, Buddhist, and Dzogchen teachings.

Thirty years ago on July 7, 1999 Chögyal Namkai Norbu had a dream of the Vajra Dance for the first time while he was staying at Khandroling, the seat of Tsegyalgar East, USA. Khandroling is where the only Universal Mandala (that we know of) exists on this planet. In his dream, Rinpoche found himself in a circular temple with four glass doors, watching over a thousand people singing and dancing the Song of Vajra.
