The past week have been so reflective, mindful, filled with awareness, compassion, struggles of practicing being silent, challenging, and the magic of experiencing silence.
We will miss sitting in the beautiful temple listening to Lama-la (our teacher of Buddhist philosophy), contemplating on aspects of life. We will miss the call to puja (prayer), the drums, horns, conch shells, and bells. We will miss the little monks playing jumprope and tag. We will miss the best chiya (milk tea) with coconut cookies and fruits. We will miss the quiet sunsets over the mighty Himalayas and the cover by the blanket of clouds, and the staunch dedication to eradicating the cause of suffering each monk exuded.
And now we are so excited to explore and learn at the permaculture farm…
