To celebrate the succes of this 8th Paranirvana celebration of Terton Tulku Chhimed Rigdzin Rinpoche, Tulku Ugen asked everyone to assemble in front of the retreat house and announced his happiness and happiness of all, for this very happy and auspicious day. He highligthed his happiness to have witnessed the dedication of the small monks, who had worked for two days under scorching sun, to erect the prayer flags with their tender hands. How they had been cheerful even at a slightest command from him or from Khandro Sashila or Lopon Chewangla. Really, we all felt that our small family is growing stronger and more dedicated.
To celebrate this, a full day of fun and excitement at Saving Kingdom (water fun park) near Siliguri was organised for the entire khordong family. See Photo.
For the whole afternoon splashing water, swimming, sliding, having fun and some good food were enjoyed.
Tulku Migmed also joined with Mumta, Neelam(both Sashi’s sisters) and Paljor (mumta’s husband), Antoine, Mariam and Nathalie. Our Lopon was the most afraid about water along with our new member, the young Sonam.
But they were soon to be seen most splashing water and taking fun. It went on this way until late and everybody went back to the monastery in a joyful mood and tired of the waves.
It was another day of celebration for the khordong familly.
