Rigdzin Ling Water Restoration Letter from Lama Padma Gyatso

                                                                                     
Dear members and friends of Chagdud Gonpa,
         
Amazingly, we have arrived at our destination! It has been almost a year since the fire destroyed the Rigdzin Ling water system and it has now been fully rebuilt. The task was challenging and complex enough to demand that, side by side with our staff and volunteers, we hired consulting engineers, excavators and especially skilled trades people. The system has not just been restored as it was, but replaced with greatly upgraded fire-resistant pipes (well over 1,500ft.), reinforced fittings and a newly built and redesigned valve shed–the control-room of the system.
         
All of this was made possible because of the downpour of blessings from your prayers and your generous outpouring of money. The 265 individual donations we received totaled $170,000. The final cost for the project was $170,000. No kidding! Just under $20,000 of that total was from local grants designated for fire recovery. The balance was all from you, the Dharma community. You, who appreciate the beautiful intention of Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche to create opportunities that connect people with the Sacred Dharma and be a support in their accomplishment of it. I feel honored to be part of this community and am filled with deep gratitude for being able to write this brief letter of good news to all of you. 
         
         With love and respect,
         Lama Padma Gyatso
          
PS – Exciting reforestation project update coming soon.

The fasting ritual practice is an easy yet powerful means to clear away obstacles to physical and mental well-being. It brings the practitioner to the essence of the supreme secret of Avalokiteshvara, the compassionate expression of all buddhas.
