The new branch in Monterrey

On the eve of May 29th 2008 the Dharmamobile, driven by Kelsang Sangden……

…reached Monterrey in nothern Mexico, 2 hrs from the US border

In a very short time, Sangden established five branches within the city, all very well attended

In November, Gen Kunsang came to visit and gave a public talk…

…attended by an enthusiastic and interested audience

Two days later, after having looked at a few buildings suitable for a Center, the perfect object appeared…

Within five days the contract was signed…

…and the building work started

The renovation took two months …

…and many people made donations giving their time, energy, money and possessions

We need a bigger Meditation Room!!

Solution… windows moved to the outer edge of the terrace

and our wish is fulfilled

What a kitchen!!

What a change!!

mmm… what can we do here

…quite a good result manifested

Looks like the public bathroom needs some maintenance…

…much better!!

Many people helped and worked on the building in many ways…

…painting …

…scraping….

…cleaning…

…and the new branch Centre appears

The main office is already busy

Beautifully arranged Tharpa bookstore

Mini World Peace Cafe in function

The Meditation Room where the opening ceremony will take place

…during which we made offerings …

..to our precious Spiritual Guide

More than 70 people attended and appreciated their first Lama Chopa

The next day Gen Kunsang gave a talk about the function and importance of Kadampa Dharma Centres

And afterwards everybody enjoyed the delicious food…

…and each others company

With deep gratitude in our hearts towards our supreme and kind Spiritual Guide we enjoy …

…and we dedicate for the flourishing of Kadam Dharma throughout the world
