After months of traveling the world – Siberia, Australia, New Zealand, North and South America, South Africa, Ireland, to name but a few destinations - Lama Ole Nydahl has arrived at the Europe Center right in time to celebrate his birthday on March 19th.
Wasting no time as usual, Lama Ole went straight to the gompa in order to greet a few hundred students eagerly awaiting his arrival, guided the meditation on the 16th Karmapa, recounted his recent travels and answered questions.
At midnight, he was presented with a huge birthday cake and of course countless well-wishes – only to immediately continue answering his students’ questions and giving advice and teachings a few minutes later, being, as always, the most inspiring example of a Bodhisattva constantly working for the benefit of others.
We could not be happier to have Lama Ole back at our Europe Center with us. A long and healthy life for you, dearest Lama, and many happy returns!
