BON SHEN LING PROJECT
Tibetan Dark Retreat Facility
To build a house with special Dark Retreat facilities.
The 49 day dark retreat, which is especially important for Dzogchen practitioners, requires specific housing features. The dark retreat room and any hallway must ensure no access for natural or electric light. The housing will be equipped with bath facilities including a toilet, shower, sink, heat, and air conditioning, have a small food feeding window, and be of adequate size for the person to do yoga and tummo exercises. When not in use for Dark retreat, this house can be used for regular student practice or lodging.
