Lemongrass has been blessed to be graced by a visit from the Tibetan Monks of The Gaden Shartse Monastery. This was their second visit to Lemongrass their first being 10 years ago in the early days of Lemongrass. Hailing from South India the monks make their yearly US tour for the primary purpose of: spreading the Tibetan Perspective of the Buddha’s teachings, lecturing, empowering, sharing sand mandalas and otherwise blessing the global world with their bright energy and spiritual mastery.
A LITTLE ABOUT THE GADEN SHARTSE MONASTERY
“To be of service to the world community by nurturing peace, harmony, compassion, and tolerance.”
The Gaden Shartse Monastic College was originally founded in Tibet in the 15th century, the school has survived several centuries of war and political unrest. Today, Gaden Shartse acts as a safe haven for students and teachers and a leader in the preservation of teaching In?depth Buddhist philosophy and education. The college is currently home to more than with 1600 resident students, teachers, scholars, and spiritual practitioners.
It is undeniable the sense of peace and grounding that these men bring into the space. It was a such a pleasure to have the monks not only at Lemongrass, but also for a lecture, blessing and dinner at our very own Tara Teipel’s home. They also showered the new Love Spiritual Ritual Kit with major blessings to awaken love in the fullest expression for all who commit to the 28-day process (now available at Lemongrass)!
