It’s Spring time at Manjushri KMC.

Work continues on clearing in the grounds to make new features including a rockery

We began the new term with Amitayus Retreat in the Kadampa Temple

The new Kadampa Studio changed a great deal this month.

From digging out the foundations . . .

. . . to making the ground beams . . .

. . . to erecting the steelwork . . .

. . . and now the building starts to appear!

Meanwhile the artists continue to work in their temporary spaces . . .

. . . sculpting and casting the statues that go to Temples all over the world

We welcomed 200 visitors to the Another World Course . . .

. . . held in the Temple on a beautiful frosty Weekend

Everyone very much enjoyed . . .

. . . the clear and inspiring teachings by Gen-la Khyenrab

There was time also to meet up with friends …

… and lots of opportunities to cherish our visitors

During the course the new Kadampa Recording Studio was used for the first time to record a new meditation CD and new sadhanas

As the weather turned characteristically blustery we held our Vajrayogini fire puja

. . . with 40 retreaters attending, including many visitors from UK and other European centres

The shortest month has been very full . . . and very enjoyable!
