Mindrolling Monastery in India is renowned throughout the dharma world today as the lineage and monastery dedicated completely to dharma activities, and as a main center for maintaining the precious secret Vajrayana doctrine. Its buildings, shrine rooms and libraries contain the great treasures of Mindrolling — including precious and original teachings, thangkas and murals — and provide housing for hundreds of monks who devote themselves entirely to the practice and study of dharma.
Extensive renovations and reconstruction have been ongoing at Mindrolling to repair damage caused by earthquakes and excessive rain over many years.

EIGHT STEPS TO TAKE INTO THE NEW YEAR
On New Year’s Day, Rinpoche gave a web address to worldwide Mindrolling sangha. In her address, Rinpoche suggested that we look not just at unwanted circumstances, but to their cause. "Many of you were asking about how to relate to this kind of year; how to relate to the many changes we all face; and how to relate to events that are not necessarily what we expected or would like them to be. As practitioners, how should we look at these situations? What kind of attitude should we have towards them?"
In addition to the video and audio recordings, we are delighted to now add this print version.
