Come Join us for Our
Annual Open House
Sunday October 25th

Everyone is warmly invited to our annual Open House on October 25th.
A guided tour begins at 2:30 pm, followed by a talk, and for those who are interested — meditation instruction.
This is a transition time at Gampo Abbey, with only the core community in residence. It would be wonderful if you could bring delicious offerings to share! We will offer light snacks and refreshments and an opportunity to meet the monastic community.
You are also invited to enjoy the beautiful surroundings by taking a walk to the Stupa of Enlightenment.
