Bringing in the New Year with compassion
Last night the Temple at Manjushri KMC, the mother center of NKT-IKBU, was filled with fortunate ones celebrating the New Year in a deeply meaningful way with Gen-la Dekyong.
Gen-la gave an extraordinary teaching on what the real meaning of 'Happy New Year' is and showed that true happiness comes only when we stop thinking about ourself alone. Then she guided a meditation on compassion.
After a break for delicious refreshments we all returned to the Temple to bring in the New Year with prayers to Mother Tara, guided by Gen-la.
Six sessions of chanting requests to Tara over the next 24 hours was a perfect beginning to the year.
