Disheartening Blow

This is a short note to inform you all that between the happy times of Holi and the auspicious day of our Life release event the gompa got hit by a disheartening blow.

An extremely strong wind blew all night on March 28th, accompanied with ligthning, thunder and hailstorm.

As a result as you can see on the photo album, trees got broken into half, fruits fell on the floor, Kitchens' roof went missing and above all one of the 2 Deers standing on both side of the Dharma wheel on the roof of the Gompa got pulled out of its basis and sent to the floor.

Luckily there has been no human nor animal casualties at Khordong Byangter Monastery, but in the morning it really was a disheartening sight.

Lamas and staff spent all day collecting debris and clearing around. On the next day Tulku Ugen brought the Deer for repair. It will take time before all falls back in place.
