The Tibetan Meditation Center's (Frederick, MD) Winter Retreat will run from 26 December - 31 December 2013. The first three days will be a Gongchig teaching and commentary. The last three days will be a Mani mantra recitation.

Gongchik, The Single Intent by Drikungpa Lord Jigten Sumgon - Thursday 26 December - Saturday 28 December 2013, 9 am - 5 pm (lunch break noon-2 pm), commentary by Venerable Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin Rinpoche, spiritual director of the Tibetan Meditation Center.

Khenchen Konchog Gyaltsen Rimpoche, from the Forward to Gongchig, The Single Intent, The Sacred Dharma, distributed by Otter Verlag:
The Gongchig teaching is a commentary on Buddha's teaching by Jigten Sumgon, the reincarnation of Nagarjuna and the founder of the Drikung Kagyu lineage. He taught the Dharma teachings for forty years to several thousands of disciples. Gongchig is complied by his heart disciple Sherab Chen-nga Jungne. It is the consummation of the Buddha's whole teachings, in which Jigten Sumgon communicated the way of Buddha's teachings as well as the actual practice. This he conveyed incisively and directly through the application of scholarly and enlightened commentary ... The Gongchig describes the law of the universe, the causality based on wisdom and compassion, Nagarjuna's philosophy of interdependence ... which is the mode of abiding of all phenomena, the teaching of the Gongchig gives a very clear set of moral ethics on how to protect one's mind from confusion and illusion.

Avalokiteshvara Mani Mantra OM MANI PEDME HUNG HRIH practice - Sunday December 29 - Tuesday December 31, 2013, 9 am - 5 pm (lunch break noon - 2 pm).

Venerable Khenpo Tsultrim Tenzin Rinpoche will lead the practices with support of Venerable Lama Norbu of the Drikung Kyobpa Choling Center in Escondido, CA.

Suggested donation: $45/day, $250 for the entire retreat. No one turned away due to lack of funds. This is a non-residential retreat but very limited accommodations are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Volunteers for kitchen and general clean-up will be needed and organized on-site.
