We have just returned from a wonderful retreat in Munich! Even though our precious Master, unfortunately, was not able to attend in person, his presence was strongly felt in the inspiring and powerful instructions given by qualified teachers. And also, Rinpoche was very present in the immensely huge portrait that decorated the walls of the Post Palace, located in a central spot in Munich. This picture must have had an appealing attraction to many new people, since more than 100 of them were present in the audience (of in total about 350 people). Although pride is generally not such good qualification, I feel that – as a sangha – we can be satisfied that we are growing in our ability to generate such inspiring retreat atmosphere on our own.
We are thankful to Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, and to all teachers, instructors, organizers and volunteers that contributed to this retreat. Thank you!
