Nalanda monks visit Lerab Ling

On Sunday March the 14th, we had the great pleasure to welcome 18 monks and lay members from Nalanda Monastery, located near to Toulouse, France. It felt very much that, our time of ordination in India continued here in Lerab Ling, by a sudden explosion of red robes. And marked by monks from many different European countries.
In a short time we had the possibility to exchange a lot about our monastic experiences. Such as Sojong, meeting their brothers at the preordination course in India, gardening, study and practices, work shops, temple decoration and our different traditions.

We had a nice lunch together (with french fries...) and visited the different shrine rooms of the temple. Unfortunately, the time we spent together was too short, because they had to leave again to attend the Sojong ceremony with Geshe Jamphal (Abbot of Nalanda).

We hope to see them again either, here in Lerab Ling, or in Nalanda, as we thought that it was such an auspicious meeting.
