Walk-a-thon for Sangdo Palri Temple in Crestone

temple-three-quarterThe Sangdo Palri Temple in Crestone, CO, will hold a walk-a-thon to raise funds on October 12. Under the guidance of Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche, it is hoped that the temple will be “a place of refuge where visitors can come to refresh their spiritual practice, make prayers, and deepen their connection to the Longchen Nyingtik tradition.”

October 12 will mark the passing of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, a contemporary and teacher of the Dalai Lama. Khyentse Rinpoche personally blessed the land on which the temple is being built, and in many ways serves as an inspiration for the temple’s construction.

There are currently team locations in Bodhgaya, London, Montreal, Vermont, and Crestone; those wishing to participate are encouraged to set up a team in their own city. For details on how to participate and information on sponsoring other walkers, click here.
