Meeting the Buddhas

I always consider myself as a simple Buddhist follower, I have some kind of confidence in it, and thus I want to study it more. Yesterday, I was invited by my friend from McLeodganj Monastery to attend a Prayer lead by His Holiness the Dalai Lama on the occasion of Je Tsongkhapa’s death anniversary (Gaden Ngamchoe) at Buddha Jayanti Park in New Delhi. At first I was not very sure that I will go considering the chilly, foggy morning and early hours of the event but I did not want to miss out on the amazing opportunity to hear His Holiness speak directly to us.  I wanted it so bad, i decided to go against all the odds and I reached the venue 45 minutes late when it was all crowded with people, His disciples from all over the world.

One of the biggest conveniences of being a blogger-you MAY get consideration for the front row 😉

For me this meetup was about creating community with like-minded Buddhist oriented friends from all traditions. This is a place to spend time with folks who are passionate about their path, as well as looking for friends to spend time with. InstagramCapture_10dad094-5579-4a44-86d0-704d0fb38276InstagramCapture_840a162b-15e9-4362-9fb5-f6a500641a83InstagramCapture_c4edb90a-71ba-4555-bfff-20a7d3694b12InstagramCapture_b3b149fa-f2b2-4d20-8f35-f40a5cf06127
