"The world we live in is getting smaller and peoples actions have tremendous impact. In the era in wich we live people cannot get away with cllinging to their beliefs. I dont have any personal attachment or clinging to being a Buddhist. We need to step outside the boundaries of Buddhism and really go out and share the benefits of our Buddhist practise with the rest of the world. " / HHG Karmapa Ogyen Trinley Dorje

New Moon in Dharamsala

Came up early with the Nuns community to the Namgyal Gompa. Just in time for His Holiness The 14th Dalai Lama to enter the tempel! Kneeling on a red scarf together, sharing a white katha to offer, he briefly stopped near by and first blessed the somewhat desperate older man sitting beside us. As he glanzed over in our direction he met my eyes and time stopped. In that moment I found tears bursting out of my eyes. For the rest of that morning there was a sense of being held by his grace. Swimming in an ocean of love. Ill never forget that New Moon day
