We have a whole day together with a small Sangha of Germany. Half the day transmission with Caty:
What is a Diamond Way group? Who decides about the programme?
Can’t we build a stupa on other people’s ground?
Of course not.
Why is it smart only to ask one teacher for advice and from the others to receive blessing?
Otherwise the group will be totally confused whose advice to follow.
After a long talk with tea, dinner and an other talk it’s time to work. The eight friends help us to prepare the villa for the evening. It’s Thursday evening and everything should shine for our open meditation at 20.30. So we reinstall the gompa after painting, clean everything, and carry things from A to B, prepare the rooms for the weekend, help cooking, make fire and welcome everybody. Fully inspired and with less question marks our friends leave again.
But somehow it’s transmission day. So Lisa, Klara and Roman sit together with Caty. At the end we are inclusively proud :-): it’s important we are here. We keep the vision of our Lama, represent Diamond Way Buddhism and therefore our style is possibly open and friendly. The Lama likes quality work, he likes things to be clean. We create our own mandala. We are the hosts and people should feel at home and leave again inspired. In this atmosphere one learns about mind. Nothing new but always good to hear again.
A long day is finishing. A wonderful one.
