The first Pandara seminar went well with around 15 participants. We started the session with a Tibetan way of meditation to ask for lineage’s blessing. After that we talked about kinds of students and types of masters as described in Shadza Rinpoche’s text. The seminar gave us a chance to talk about our inner experiences, to clear up questions about Tibetan Buddhism, and to open our heart to each other. We ended the session with Tara mantra recitation and dedication of merit.
Thanks to everyone who came. Nuch, Nut and Pranee stayed till late evening to help me prepare for the upcoming event and to discuss our plan to build a 1000 Stars community at Khadiravana.
My heart has already gone back to the land, which has become the mission of my life. From now on I won’t be in Bangkok as much as before. Hopefully, I can still keep friendship through cyberspace and our Pandara family will continue to grow and benefit society.
