But it was always regarded as auspicious, a "Rain Of Wisdom".
I’m a lightweight. I meditate in a chair. I wouldn’t have been able to handle it.
I was very fortunate to be able to attend the ceremony on Sunday. It was indeed very cold and wet, however there was a rainbow in the sky at the moment the procession from the Lama house began. During the worst part of the rain several of us held tarps and umbrellas over the lamas. One of the Lamas I spoke with afterward said the rain was just rinpoche’s way of purifying our obscurations.
