It’s winter at KMC Spain.

The sky is still blue, but the plants, fruits and …

late afternoons remind us it is still winter.


Hotel Kadampa is closed for clients …

and the Temple takes the lead role hosting the winter retreats.

Deep cleaning is made

in all corners of the Temple.

The “Universal Compassion” course begins

with teachings from our National Spiritual Director, Gen Chokga …

and our Resident Teacher, Gen Rigden, guides meditations.

Attendees listen to the teachings during the sessions …

and in-between they study …

take a walk in the surrounding countryside …

and talk to like-minded spiritual friends.

The spiritual team takes the opportunity to organize and make publicity …

for the 2009 Dharma activities.

It is also the best moment to make small improvements …

and larger ones!

The drainage to the main building has been fixed …

and we don’t forget about the kitchen work!

KMC Spain ended 2008 with prayers for world peace made to Buddha Avalokiteshvara …

and started the new one, 2009, with prayers to Arya Tara.

Happy New Year from the KMC Spain community!
