Chinese New Year is about greeting & gathering

This year, we had a special gathering with Gen-la Khyenrab

We prepared two Meditation Rooms to hold an audience of more than 150 people

Venerable Gen-la Khyenrab….

..gave us teachings ….

…. on the Bodhisattva Warrior

Many of us…..

….were taking notes diligently …..

…..contemplating…..

…… and generating faith

The Students in the second floor Meditation Room…

….. were praying sincerely!

Everyone flocked down to the World Peace Cafe for a refreshing break…..

…and to catch up with friends

Gen Tonglam led the reviews and meditation sessions

The following night, the festivities continued with a Wishfullfilling Jewel Puja

Then we had a party in the Cafe!

A feast of food….

…a young boy presented Gen-la with a beautiful piece of his own art ….

The Hong Kong NKT family with Gen-la

We started the month with a very meaningful offering to our Spiritual Guide….

…praying for his long life….

….during the Amitayus Retreat

… so that he can guide us along the spiritual path continuously
