As we all are aware a 7.8 earthquake struck Nepal on April 25th, just a few long days ago. We are relieved to know that Khenpo Rinpoche, his nuns, and their families are safe, but terribly sadden by the great loss of life and suffering that has resulted for so many. We know so many people in Nepal have lost their lives or those of their loved ones and friends. Thousands more have lost their homes, are hurt or sick. It really is a shocking time.

The report from the Yolmo retreat facility is that the nuns there were only slightly injured during the earthquake. Their retreat house and shrine room are destroyed, and they are staying with villagers in tents. It seems that all the Yolmo villagers' homes are destroyed, and many have died or been hurt. 

We are still trying to get more information about the situation in Yolmo, and will update this as we know more.
