It was a fantastic gift to have Venerable Geshe-la with us at KMC France in October.

“The Palace is built, now you have to become King Heruka and Queen Vajrayogini.”

After almost 2 years of building work, KMC France is now very quiet…

… as everyone takes a temporary break before completing the renovations in the New Year!

However some stay behind to continue with work. Here final touches are made to the ritual Preparation Room…

… the Archive Room …

… and the the first kitchen for residents.

Yann has just joined Tharpa Publications (France) team – welcome!

We made the final ‘Wishfullfiling Jewel’ prayer preparation of 2008 …

… tsog preparations were made in the old Ritual Preparation Room …

… and the Temple was prepared.

KMC France then started to welcome ‘winter retreaters’; about 10 people will engage in silent retreat during January. How fantastic!

Thank you Geshe-la for this fantastic year!
