Le vendredi 12 février a eu lieu le Losar (nouvel an tibétain), après 5 jours de rituel de Goutor qui ont été retranmis en direct pour la première fois sur la nouvelle Chaîne YouTube “KML Gompa TV” et qui depuis le 12 retransmet les pratiques quotidiennes du matin ainsi que la pratique de Tchenrézi du soir qui ont lieu dans le Temple de Montchardon.
A l’occasion de cette journée, nous avons demandé à Lama Teunsang si il était possible de filmer une courte vidéo pour nous transmettre un message.
Nous somme très heureux de vous proposer cette courte interview (9 minutes) et espérons que ce moment avec Lama vous apportera autant de joie qu’à nous.

Lama Tonsang – Message for Losar 2021

On Friday 12th February, the Losar (Tibetan New Year) took place, after 5 days of the Gutor ritual which were broadcast live for the first time on the new YouTube Channel “KML Gompa TV“. Since the 12th, the daily morning practices as well as the evening Chenrezig practice which take place in the Temple of Montchardon have been broadcast live.
On the occasion of this day, we asked Lama Tonsang if it was possible to film a short video and give us a message.
We are very happy to offer you this short interview (9 minutes) and hope that this moment with Lama will bring you as much joy as it did to us.

As in early January, the Lama again mentions the remarkable practice of Lodjong and Tonglen.
You can go to the Montchardon website and consult the page dedicated to the practice of Lodjong given from December 28th, 2020 to January 1st, 2021 in Montchardon. The first two days Lama Teunsang transmitted the text of Djamgoen Kontrul Lodreu Thaye’s comments on Tchekawa Dorje’s 7-point Mind Training with the comments. Then Lama Sangpo transmitted the instructions on the practice of Lodjong with the explanations on “Tonglen”. You will find details about this practice on: https://www.montchardon.fr/lodjong

This summer the programme will take place under special circumstances, since the Centre can resume activities provided that sanitary measures are strictly observed.

Whether you are vaccinated or not, whether you have a negative PCR test or not, does not change the need to respect sanitary measures.

Your presence in Montchardon implies that you strictly respect sanitary measures in all circumstances.

We are now used to these measures:

  1. Wear a protective mask in the temple during the whole teaching or practice period, in the refectory until you start eating, and in all situations where it is difficult to maintain a 1m distance with others.
  2. Hand wash with hydro-alcoholic gel when entering and leaving the temple and refectory, whenever accessing the self-service area and on all occasions when touching a collective object.
  3. Maintain a distance of 1m around yourself, in the temple, in the refectory and when moving around in the Centre.

Access to the temple will be limited to 70/80 people to respect sanitary distances.

For accommodation, the rooms that accommodate several people will become individual rooms, except for couples or families. The number of places in the dormitory will be reduced to space out the beds. This will allow us to accommodate about 80 people.

The campsite area will be open, and the layout of the tents should follow the same guidelines. Disinfectant will be available in all places where necessary.

These rules must be maintained in Montchardon at all times.

Indeed:

- We have a moral obligation to protect ourselves and others from disease, especially as we live in collective premises.

- It is important to continue to protect Lama Teunsang, whose immunity is greatly diminished, even though he has been vaccinated.

For these reasons, we are asking all those who come this summer to commit to respecting sanitary measures. This commitment will take the official form of a box to be ticked on the registration form, which will allow everyone to come to the Centre with complete peace of mind.

If you cannot or do not wish to follow these guidelines, we ask you not to come to the Centre while these rules are in effect.

The same applies, of course, if you are ill or have symptoms of the virus.

When you leave, if you need to have a PCR test, this can be done in the cities in the area. However, it will be up to you to organise (making an appointment, travelling to and from the test site), because the Centre cannot manage these procedures.
