Evening at the Buddhist Center

Tonight I went to the Buddhist Center in Bochum, first we had a short lecture, than the 16th Karmapa meditation together and than some organisational meeting to prepare a few things for the big event in April.

Ulla was also there and I had some time to talk with her and give her our gift, the Buddha statue we bought together in Phnom Penh in January. She liked it a lot. And in fact she had even a surprise for us, for our help preparing her trip to Siem Reap, where in the end she was not able to go. She had a very nice surprise gift for us, a statue of the "White Tara".
White Tara, is also known for compassion, long life, healing and serenity; also known as The Wish-fulfilling Wheel. She represents a female Buddha aspect and has protecting power. Think this is a very thoughtful gift for us. Ulla asked me also to send you her best wishes and greetings.
So its been a nice, peaceful, but also late evening there. IMYSM!

  1. Ulla,

    Big thanks for the surprise gift for both of us. Really nice and kind of you.

    Do not hesitate to ask for favor in case you would need help for the trip to Cambodia. I am happy and always ready to help.

    Dein Freund,

    you're welcome! Great, when you take a shine to White Tara.
    Thank you so much for your generous offer. Perhaps we'll be able to come to Cambodia someday.
    Best wishes,
