A Pandara Weekend at Khadiravana

 

beau-pict-of-salaThis past weekend Pranee (Yidrol), Nuch and Nut went to Khadiravana with me and Yontan. It’s a small retreat for Pandara staff. The weather was nice and we were happy to do several auspicious deeds at the Maha Stupa site. It was also a special experience to pray at the Mantra Stupa and celebrate our new pavillion.
