Day 7 – Blessing of the new rooms, a kora around the EC grounds and an evening of presentations for Karmapa

After the courtyard celebration, the inauguration of the gompa and the burying of the time capsule, Gyalwa Karmapa and Lama Ole were far from calling it a day – the afternoon was filled with more celebration, together with many hundred students from around the world!

Coming straight from the Rabne in the gompa, Karmapa went on an extensive tour through each and every room of the new buildings, blessing basically every corner followed by an ever-growing number of students. After this, he guided a classical circumambulation (Tib. Kora) of the whole premises of the Europe Center. During the Kora, colorful Tibetan prayer flags were hung into the trees up on the summer course gompa plateau.

And last but not least, Karmapa and Lama Ole had a toast and a cookie together with everyone in the gompa tent, watching performances and presentations sitting right in the middle of the crowd of students.

For sure, this was a truly historical day in the history of the Europe Center which we will not forget so quickly!
