In 2020, Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche was meant to lead a preliminary practice retreat for Chetsun Nyingtig practitioners at Lerab Ling in the south of France. Unable to go in person due to the pandemic, he compiled a clear and detailed instruction manual for Chetsun practitioners to practice a one-month retreat for the Chetsun ngondro, or preliminary practices. In the summer of 2022, when Khenchen Namdrol was finally able to lead that retreat in person, the instruction manual was updated and refined.

The Instruction Manual for a One-Month Practice Retreat is now offered as a companion publication to the 5th Edition of the Chetsun Nyingtig practice for dedicated Chetsun practitioners. It includes step-by-step instructions on how to carry out a one-month retreat on a day-by-day basis, as well as clear explanations of many parts of the preliminary practices. This manual also includes long-life prayers for Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche and a new Light of Berostana translation of the Final Words of Chetsun Senge Wangchuk.
