Retreat center 閉關中心
Retreats are the intense periods of meditation practice that are essential to Vajrayana monks .thus it is important to have a proper place to do retreat .
The retreat center of the nunnery is located at Sher Gonpa in Manang near the famous Milarepa caves. The retreat has a wonderful view of the snow mountains of Tibet. When the first nuns came to Kathmandu to help establish the Abbey, several of them had already completed three-year retreat at that place. Sher Gonpa has recently been rebuilt and the consecration ceremonies were held in August 2005.And in 2006, fourth retreat group consisting of nine nuns entered into it and completed the same in nov, 2009.following there completion the fifth group comprising Eight nuns entered it. At the same time along with them 7 other nuns went through Ngondro the preliminary stage of three years retreat.
The retreat schedule is the same as that of the monks in three year retreat at Sekar Retreat Center, the retreat center for monks in Nepal.
閉關中心位于在著名Milarepa洞附近的Manang。 當安尼措莫來到加德滿都幫助建立度母寺，他與安尼噶瑪卓瑪在那個地方已經完成了三年的閉關。 閉關中心近年被重建了，並且在2005 年八月完工。
