Dear Friends,

first an important change of schedule: The lifetrees are most likely to be set on the 22nd of Aug. It depends if the stonemasons have finished their work by then. But it is Lama Chogdrup’s wish that we can set the lifetrees already at the 22nd instead of the 24th.

In case you haven’t noticed yet you can now use our online registration to register for your stay in KBL.

While we were having intense meditation days with the blessing of the Tsa-Tsas for Tsuktor and Öser Trime Mandalas

the granite parts of the Stupas arrived. Shortly after the professionals for the granite work at the Stupas arrived and started their work.

During the unloading of the granite parts, one of the trucks almost slid into the Stupa sockets. However, the truck was pulled out by another truck and no damage happened to the Stupas.

Thus we could at last place and fill the boxes for the first chambers of the actual Stupas.
