The Great Bön Stupa for World Peace in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, was consecrated on December 4, 2010. Now, Ligmincha Mexico has a program to improve the retreat center and also allow groups and individuals to generate merit by sponsoring a series of new stupas.
Stupas, or chorten in the Tibetan language, are an important part of Bön and Himalayan culture. Serenity Ridge Retreat Center, headquarters of Ligmincha International, now has its own stupa—the first Bön stupa in the United States and Ligmincha’s fifth stupa worldwide.
If you live close to Serenity Ridge, you are welcome to join others in the area for social events, volunteer work, classes and other activities. To be added to the local sangha email list so you can be notified about upcoming events, email email@example.com.
A special photo tribute to Kunzang Khang, the beautifully designed multipurpose building at Serenity Ridge, and its project manager Grover Overstreet, appears in the October issue of Voice of Clear Light.
New volunteers are always needed and most welcome at Serenity Ridge Retreat Center, headquarters of Ligmincha International, and to serve the larger organization. We depend on the assistance of committed volunteers to help in running many of our day-to-day operations and other functions.
