We were incredibly fortunate to recently welcome Geshe Tashi for his first ever visit to Land of Joy. Geshe la generously offered his time, guidance and encouragement during the very beginning of the establishment of Land of Joy, prior to the purchase of our property, when many obstacles were being faced despite the vast efforts being made to turn the vision into a reality. It was therefore wonderful to see Geshe la seem to very much enjoy spending time here.
During his stay Geshe la very kindly offered his time and wisdom to lead a Middle Lam Rim Insight Retreat with his students. In addition to the retreat, Geshe la also offered an incense puja for the success of the centre and held a refuge ceremony for one of our local supporters. It was a special time for the centre and we very much hope Geshe Tashi will be return again next year and many many more times in the future.
