A KADAMPA 'TOUR DE FRANCE'

21

During the summer break at KMC France,  two members of the community took to the road for an energetic but meaningful cycling vacation.

Covering almost 1100km, they visited all the Kadampa centers in southern France and finished by helping a new, elderly resident move to KMC France. Here they share some wonderful photos of their trip.

David the AD and Aurélie the EPC set off by train with their bikes to KMC Vajravarahi in Toulouse where they joined the community for Offering to the Spiritual Guide on August 25.

"Next we went to Montpellier to see the Sangha at KMC Vajrassattva and then to Marseille, where we joined the community at CBK Menlha for Wishfullfilling Jewel puja.

"From there we went to les gorges du Verdon and then to Fréjus to help our new resident prepare for her move to KMC. Next came Nice, where we joined the community at CBK Chakrasambhara for Offering to the Spiritual Guide puja on September 10.

"After a trip through the mountains north of Nice, we returned to Fréjus, where we rented a car to drive us all, including our new resident, back to KMC.

"It was a great tour of the Kadampa centers in the south, and inspiring to meet their Sangha. Thank you everyone for your warm welcome; it was wonderful."
