The Rinchen Terdzod Empowerments

Gratitude to the Senior Nuns of Samten Tse

Each evening after the empowerment, the Core Coordinators pass on the information regarding the next day’s empowerments to the senior nuns of Samten Tse who work late into the night preparing and translating the list for the next day's empowerments.  The entire gathering very much appreciates knowing the names and number of the empowerments and the nuns accommodate many people by making the lists available in both Tibetan and English. The nuns are also archiving rare texts, tsalis and mandalas.
