Holi and in-house life release

Greetings to all,

This week has been rich in events we wish to share with you.
On Thursday 24th March we celebrated Holi, the Indian festival of colors together with Amalha's birthday as we got used to do every year in her presence. Remebering Amalha, Tulku Ugen together with his wife Shashi and the lamas have cut the cake and enjoyed.

On that same day the lamas went to catch the fishes trapped in the Gompa's pond due to lack of rain. This is something we do every year when there is not enough water in the pond to sustain the life of our resident fishes. Once caught, Tulku Ugen together with Lopon Gonpo Tsering and the lamas did the life release pujah and brought the fishes to a nearby river. This is in preparation for the much bigger Tsethar to happen on the next Dakini day (April 2nd) thanks to your participation.

And the next day on Friday 25th March, another full time resident allowed himself to be seen. We seldom manage to catch such a sight of them and even less take pictures, so we also wanted to share those with you. This is taken in the drain of Rinpoche's stupa.

The next post will be with pictures of the annual Life release event. Till then we wish you to be safe and happy wherever you are despite the terrible events we hear about in the news.

Sarwa Mangalam.
