Announcing the New Nekhor App

Yeshe Zangthal

Nekhor, meaning “pilgrimage” in Tibetan (or literally, “circling the sacred”), was first envisioned nearly a decade ago, in 2014. An initiative of Samye Translations, Nekhor is driven by a single mission: to connect you with the sacred sites where awakened masters have lived, practiced, and benefited our world.

Beginning with Buddha Shakyamuni, from whom all streams of Buddhism in our modern age have flowed, and Guru Padmasambhava, the forefather of Tibetan Buddhism, we invite the intrepid spiritual seeker to journey with us through South Asia to explore the physical landscape that is the literal foundation of the Dharma.

To help guide you through this journey, we have developed a website and app bringing the pilgrim to the exact locations where the Buddha and the Mahaguru practiced meditation, shared their insight through teaching, and displayed vast miracles. The Nekhor App is available in both the Apple and Google App stores under the keyword “Nekhor.” As Nekhor develops, we aspire to include even more sacred sites associated with such authentic masters. For those interested in a more in-depth presentation of Guru Padmasambhava’s life, our recently published Following in Your Footsteps series, documenting the Guru in Nepal and India, can be purchased on Amazon. Our final installment, The Lotus-Born Guru in Tibet, is slated for release later this year.
