In general, you don´t like so much being invaded. After visiting Beaufoy and Karma Guen it was Europe Center beeing occupied by the invaders from the country of „50 shades of green“.
To start from the end – it was a pity when the friends walked through the door leaving again after this weekend full of good impressions. Whole Europe Center felt like being moved to the island: the center bathed in green, Irish flags everywhere, Irish music, Irish food, Irish humor, … only dharma lectures stayed universal.
Very interesting for everyone, it seemed even for the Irish sangha members, was the presentation of the history of Diamond Way Buddhism in Ireland. Lots of stories from „beginning-less times“ were shared. The highly energetic experiences told in the typical Irish way caused an eruption of laughter in the audience. Deeply inspired by the teachings and stories, it was time to make own experiences by chatting and dancing the night away with friends, supported by original Irish music performed by Reidun, Barry and Kristian and Guinness on tap.
Guys, it was amazing – thank you sooooo much. Europe Center is looking forward to the next invasion. International Sangha friends truly made the Europe Center rock!
