An Excursion and Banquet in Mussoorie

Midway into the retreat, all the participants were able visit to Samten Tse Retreat Centre. During this tour the retreat participants were able to spend time with the nuns and enjoy a wonderful Tea and Coffee reception. Everyone was then invited to spend the night in Mussoorie where Rinpoche and Jetsünla hosted a banquet for everyone. Many monks and nuns also joined in this wonderful get together.
