Gyaltsab Je Study Group in Ile de la Réunion, situated east of Madagascar, shares some news with Mandala from their island home:
On July 6, 2013, a good number of students responded to our invitation to share a moment in honor of His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s birthday.
After a presentation of His Holiness’ bibliography by Marc, we took turns reading pieces of the Dalai Lama’s advice. We noted that each of selections matched our personalities because Daniel had placed them before our arrival. This made for a fully emotional moment: recalling the extraordinary life of the 14th Dalai Lama, his exile, that of his people, his political and spiritual missions, his choices that demonstrate his generosity, his compassion.
Ven. Thubten Sangpo next guided us on a meditation on the six realms of samsara, followed by a long-life prayer for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and a prayer for Lama Zopa Rinpoche.
We finished the afternoon as a small group of friends in good spirits. We thank all those who joined this meeting and thank the town hall of Saint-Pierre which lent us a room for the occasion.
Gyaltsab Je Study Group’s blog is available in French.
