    How foolish you are,
    grasping the letter of the text and ignoring its intention!

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

One of the stupas on the grounds

The sand mandala that is housed inside

Close up of the sand to see how intricate it really is

Close ups

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,
It's not a competition. It's a choice.

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.
