Nirmanakaya

Body of the Buddha

This tiny cabin features large windows along its porch, looking out into a bowl-shaped glade, which has a peaceful and protected atmosphere; so much so, that groups of deer frequently sleep close by the cabin. It is located near the retreat road, but hidden from view, in short walking distance to the meadows surrounding the Purkhang, the stupa-like monument in the upper retreat area. From Nirmanakaya, one can easily walk down to the main house, if need be.

Nirmanakaya’s practice space has been ripened by generations of retreatants.
