Mount Madonna 2020 Retreat Cancelled

Dear Friends,

Unfortunately, we need to cancel the Mount Madonna retreat on Renunciation, Compassion, and Devotion scheduled this December (2020) due to the uncertainties around the Covid-19 virus in California. Mount Madonna Center has indicated that it will be closed for the rest of this year. All of us at Pundarika are saddened by this turn of events and imagine all of you are as well.

Rinpoche will give shorter on-line teachings from August 21 to 27, 2020, from Kathmandu. We will provide more details by the end of July on our website as to how to access them.

We recently created a resources page with teachings and meditations by Rinpoche that is on the home page.

Also, the Membership library has many full retreats and guided meditations.

We will be processing refunds for the Mount Madonna retreat beginning July 20th. If you wish to donate (tax-deductible) tuition payments that you have made to help Rinpoche and his humanitarian projects, you can email our Registrar that this is your wish in the next week, by July 20th. After that date, we will process refunds and given the uncertainty around future dates, we will not transfer fees to a future retreat. If you have questions about your refund, please email Susan, our Registrar, at

Our warmest wishes,

The Pundarika Staff
