Christmas at the EC with Amadeo Rosenheim

Yes, even we Buddhists like to embrace traditional Western culture: decorating a tree in the living room, having lots of good food together and exchanging presents!

However, we even go lots on top this Christmas: Diamond Way teacher Amadeo Rosenheim from Mexico came to give lectures (and to deliver a brilliant performance in the pantomime challenge on christmas eve). Amadeo met Lama Ole Nydahl in 2005 in London. In 2008, he moved to Cancún, Mexico where he has lived since. Lama Ole asked him to teach in 2013 and he now spends as much time as possible at the EC,  following a wish of Lama Ole.

Gompa cleaning, large scale!

Not only did our friends who cleaned the 400 sqm meditation hall surely accumulate lots of merit, they also had an awesome time climbing under the massive roof in order to clean the ventilation pipes! :)

The meditation cushions obviously have been used a lot since the inauguration of our precious big gompa, so all of them got new spelt husk paddings in the cleaning frenzy as well. We are looking forward to welcoming you on one of these cushions soon and to enjoy our now even more shiny gompa together!
