Come and join the dance! Rinpoche has stated that Khandroling is the seat of Goma Devi and is a special place, for this is where he received the terma of the Vajra Dance. He advised us to construct the Vajra Hall which will house and protect the Universal Mandala.
The first talk given by Choegyal Namkhai Norbu July 2012 at the new Vajra Hall,
being built in Khandroling, Buckland, Mass.
Between 2008-2010, the Dzogchen Community of Tsegyalgar East has successfully completed the first two phases of construction of the Vajra Hall with donations of $516,000 USD from the local community.
Starting in 2010 our Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu opened participation in this project to all members of the International Dzogchen Community. At a time when there are many worthy Dzogchen Community projects all over the world, we invite you to help complete this very large and important project manifesting from Rinpoche's vision.
The budget for completing the Vajra Hall over the two year period of 2011 and 2012 requires an additional $600,000 USD for Phase 3. In 2011 donations and pledges from the worldwide Dzogchen Community reached $383,000. This leaves a balance of approximately of $215,000 to be raised during 2012. It is our wish and intention to complete the construction this year in order to be ready for the Vajra Hall inauguration, which Rinpoche specified would occur in 2014. The realization of the Vajra Hall, the temple of Goma Devi, is unique in the world and very meaningful for all dancers of the Song of the Vajra and practitioners of Jhanadakini, Goma Devi and Mandarava.
