When Lama Zopa Rinpoche left Tushita on the 19th of June 2013, he travelled to Triloknath, a small village near Mandi, in the Lahaul district of Himachal Pradesh. Triloknath is also known as Garsha Khandroling, “Land of the Dakinis.”, and has an ancient temple that houses a self-emanating statue of Chenrezig. Lama Zopa, along with Khadro-la and Serkong Tsenshab Rinpoche, spent some time there in retreat, which you can read more about on the FPMT Mandala Magazine site here.
Our busy calendar of events proceeded as normal for during the following month or so, and then in August, Tushita volunteers were told by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to close up shop and come on pilgrimage with him! Tushita was closed for almost 2 weeks, while our office, housekeeping and meditation-leading volunteers made the thrilling mountain journey to Triloknath in the company of these holy beings (and safe in the hands of our driver Vinod!). Some photos from that amazing trip can be seen on our facebook page here.

Tushita is a centre for the study and practice of Buddhism from the Tibetan Mahayana tradition. We're located in Northern India, in the forested hills above the town of McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala - the seat in exile of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.
Tushita aims to provide a friendly and conducive environment for people of all nationalities and backgrounds to learn about and put into practice the teachings of the Buddha. With this in mind we offer regular drop-in events and courses on introductory Buddhist philosophy and meditation, as well as intermediate level courses and group retreats for more experienced students.
