To the friends who returned home straight after the Summer Course:
If possible, you might want to try to stay longer and help with the dismantling of the infrastructure next year…
Why? Not only because of the merit and the great atmosphere of joyful activity for the benefit of others, but also because the person helping you to carry that huge piece of wooden tent floor just might be – yes, Lama Ole!
Our tireless teacher gave the perfect example of unending diligence and strength once again, coming out of his retreat and helping with the dismantling on several occasions. And it broke records: taking the huge cafeteria tent floor to pieces took less than an hour!
On top, right before leaving the Europe Center almost a week after the course had ended, Lama Ole guided a meditation for the helpers who had worked all the past days and gave blessing.
We could not be more grateful to our always inspiring Lama and wish him all the best for his ongoing retreat! We will do our part and use as much time as possible for meditation as well!
