A Letter from Kalu Rinpoche

The following article is from the Spring, 1988 issue of the Snow Lion Newsletter and is for historical reference only. You can see this in context of the original newsletter here.

When I was in San Francisco last year, I was impressed with the number of serious and devoted Dharma students, so I decided at that time that a retreat center for the City Sangha would be most beneficial. My wish was that the center could purchase some land, not too far from the city, and establish a place where students could go on the weekends to relax, take teachings, and engage in the practice of meditation. I stated this many times during my public talks in San Francisco and many people heard and were enthusiastic about the idea.

Lama Lodro is in the process of finding a suitable piece of land for the center. Any assistance, either physical or financial that any of you are able to render will be most beneficial. Since the land will belong to the lineage and not to Lama Lodro or to any particular individual, it will serve all beings equally, and it is said that the merit accrued from making such a contribution will last as long as the land remains in existence, so it will be a timeless contribution.

All My Blessings,

Kalu Rinpoche
