I am so grateful to have had the chance to teach and get to know the monks at Sakya Choepheling Rimbick. They are such kind people and I had so much fun with them. They gave me a nice farewell, almost drowning me in blessing scarves. I have uploaded a lot of photos so everyone can maybe see a bit of what my time was like. I hope they're interesting!

Although it's only 20km in a straight line from Darjeeling, Rimbick is a 3-5 hour drive away.
