Merigar West Membership Renewal 2023

merigar membership renewal 2023Merigar International Dzogchen Community

Dear friends,

All of us members of Merigar have the privilege and the duty to support our Gar so that it can continue the practice of the Dzogchen Teaching as transmitted by our beloved Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. In this way the benefits of the Teaching can be enjoyed by all members of the International Dzogchen Community and contribute to the evolution of every sentient being.

Membership fees are an important part of the funds that allow us to achieve this goal, making it possible to maintain Merigar’s facilities and allowing all members and those interested to participate in the many activities of the Community.

This is a short list of the activities we organize at Merigar, and which you can all follow in our facilities – the Gönpa, the Mandala Hall, and the Cinerarium – and online:

  • watching videos of the Master’s retreats and related guided practices
  • practice retreats throughout the year
  • Yantra Yoga courses
  • Vajra Dance classes
  • Khaita courses
  • Meditation courses and seminars
  • study and practice of Santi Maha Sangha

At Merigar we also organize social dinners and lunches during the year and Karma Yoga groups to maintain our gardens, the Gönpa, and the Stupa, all activities that strengthen our friendship and create an atmosphere of collaboration and enjoyment.

Membership is a tangible sign of being part of the Dzogchen Community, and of sharing its mission to support the Precious Teachings of Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.

With this message we would therefore like to remind you of the importance of renewing your 2023 membership, a fundamental element for the life of the Gar. In fact, it is the contribution of each member that makes the ordinary life of Merigar possible.

In addition, if you have forgotten to pay your membership for 2022, there’s still time to do it.
