These are all taken at our local Tibetan Cultural Center/Monastery

Inside the temple (I thought I had photos of outside but I don't seem to find them)Image

These next photos I think are really neat. I love seeing the monks interact with children and the visit had a great impact on my children. (the little girl in purple is one of mine)

He's helping the little ones make little paper prayer flags. My kids treasure theirs.

I hope it's ok I shared all of these.

Tara, your watercolor by your friend, Ven. Gyatso, is beautiful. There is a thangka painting class coming up in my area this fall, I am hoping to get in on it.

Om, thank you for posting the photos of the monastery and of your children, what a great experience for them! Is this monastery in San Antonio?

Thank you. Sadly I am unable to pass your comment on to Ven. Gyatso as he died suddenly aged 38 on 29th July. I hope you get into the Thangka painting class. I was very fortunate to a have had a private guided tour, accompanied by Ven. Gyatso, of the Thangka painting classroom/studio, along with all the other classroom/workshops, at the Norbulingka Institute located near Dharamsala. The Thangkas created there are amazing.

Regards,

oh, I am sorry to hear about your friend and teacher. It is nice that you have his beautiful work of art to remember him by.

I am thinking of buying one, found some originals for sale for $50, proceeds going to Hosier Women's School - a school for poor and uneducated women in Nepal. I would like to have one to hang behind my bedroom altar.

Somewhere along the Anapurna Circuit
And while I walked, the fear and dread came upon me; but I neither stood nor sat nor lay down till I had subdued that fear and dread. While I stood, the fear and dread came upon me; but I neither walked nor sat nor lay down till I had subdued that fear and dread. While I sat, the fear and dread came upon me; but I neither walked nor stood nor lay down till I had subdued that fear and dread. While I lay, the fear and dread came upon me; but I neither walked nor stood nor sat till I had subdued that fear and dread.
