After the retreat we had together in Karma Berchen Ling it is really hard to put it in words. One just should be there. So better I will let Dakpo Tashi Namgyal speak:
“Elevate your experience and remain wide-open like the sky.
Expand your mindfulness and remain pervasive like the earth.
Steady your attention and remain unshakable like a mountain.
Brighten your awareness and remain shining like a flame.
Clear your thought-free wakefulness and remain lucid like a crystal.”
If there is the place among our Diamond Way centers where one can be particularly closer to this experience, it is definitely Karma Berchen Ling. This is the place for meditation! And if you do it with a bunch of good friends (who else could go there?!), you can not avoid great joy and laughter that comes like a wave after a few days spent together meditating. Time in KBL goes slower a bit and it is so great since the time spent there is really precious. Thank you so much friends and see you soon.
