In Tibet, there are three types of pilgrimage destinations: natural sights, such as mountains, lakes and caves; sites built by humans, such as temples, monasteries and retreat locations; and the secret grounds, or béyul (sbasyul).
A fourth type of pilgrimage consists of going to meet and pay homage to a Master or a person with special spiritual knowledge.
Undertaking a pilgrimage is a journey towards knowledge and an act that a pilgrim carries out to earn merits.
Merigar (known as the home of the mountain of fire) is an important sacred place for all those who wish to travel a spiritual path in the West. It is the first Gar of the International Dzogchen Community (1981), a place to go to receive the teachings transmitted by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s Retreat Cabin, pilgrimage destination for anyone on a personal journey in the search for knowledge, needs urgent maintenance today.
The work needs to be concluded by the end of 2018 and the total cost for the project is 20,000 Euros.
Thanks to the generosity of many, we managed to reach the goal of 20,000 € for the restoration of the Merigar retreat cabin of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu
Now Merigar – Dzogchen Community of Merigar – founded by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in 1981, will manage the monitoring of the restoration works and the financial report .
