Tuesday evening at the EC, another calm day after a lovely and hard working weekend.. In was great to keep up with the fundamental objective of our center – to remain international, on all levels. So it was, when the previously mentioned crew from Hungary came, and some friends from Czech Republic, Austria and Slovakia! We just have to praise them for the amazing work filling in the little barn with wood and cleaning the water pipe, as well as for being so open and inspiring! And the group of tarzans – a couple of Austrians, one Czech and a Slovakian, who all did wonderful in the woods, cutting trees and burning probably the biggest fire for the day in the Allgau area.
Some more changes in our courtyard! Not only did most of the piles of old furniture and waste were taken away, but a recently brought stupa model, previously used in some exhibition, found its place in our center, too. Though being a sample stupa rather than a real blessed symbol of enlightened mind, it still gives more vitality to our courtyard until the actual thing takes its belonging place..
Inside there is also some great improvement – in the small house, where Libor works tooth and nail to install the new bathroom, which will very soon be of great use to the inhabitants of the house as well as frequent guests, at least 50 of which are expected for the next weekend again! And the painting works in the villa move to our gompa room, hence it is temporarily transfered to the yellow room, while Jentz is going to do his best to make it white as snow of the Alps around..
Last but not least Klara and Roman are back, which is a great joy to all of us! They are an amazing couple from Czech Republic, and live here since the beginning of January for at least one year on, travelling back to Czeck once in a while. Roman is our engine of ideas and Mr. Communication management of the EC, also legally able to teach about dharma as he is a travelling teacher. His wife Klara, so young, smart and beautiful, and already married! Mrs. Photographer and Writer of the blog and other means of information about the EC, and a true inspiration. Happy birthday, Klara, once more!
Everybody is a real family here..
