Greetings to the world

December 17th, 2011

One of the EC Sangha’s annual holiday traditions is taking a cosy evening to sign the EC New Year’s cards together. They are sent to each of the over 600 Diamond Way Buddhist Centers as well as several teachers and friends worldwide – that makes it just about 800 cards to sign. ;-)

We left a blank space on the cards for a good reason. Finally arriving home after a delayed journey back from South America, Lama Ole and Caty decided to ignore their jetlag and diligently signed every single one of the cards. While signing, they shared some stories from Lama Ole’s recent tour through North and South America.

With the peak of the moreEC campaign on New Year’s eve getting closer, even the kids are ”helping” to raise some money for the new building – with a little help from their friends (and parents). So now you can purchase lots of yummy christmas cookies in EC design – and colourful meditation huts with gummi bear meditators inside. ;-)
