Losar Lungtas 2019

We’ll Hang your Prayer Flags in Pharping, Nepal in March 2019 for Long Life and Prosperity in the Year of the EARTH BOAR

Help us to maintain the language, culture and traditions of Tibet by hanging Lungtas in the sacred place of Pharping, bringing you good fortune and coordinating your elements with those of the New Year. The Lungta flags will be empowered with mantras by experienced meditators and by H.E the 8th Dugu Chögyal Rinpoche

Donation: 5 GBP per set of Lungta flags
(One set is made up of 5 flags, it is customary to hang the number of Lungta corresponding to your age)

Insight Tours

Where Buddhist culture comes alive...

If you want to experience magical Myanmar from a myriad of perspectives this is the tour for you. The ten days were a fast moving kaleidoscope of wondrous events. Forget about the photos, I have found that the impressions themselves have left an indelible inner imprint that plays on in my imagination...
