Karmê Chöling, from the photo archive

By Mike De Give

Since Shambhala Day, there have been photos from the archives hanging on the walls here at Karme Choling. In the silence before the gong each morning, sometimes I’ll pick one out and study the grainy faces of sangha members — some erecting the walls of the Main Shrine Room, others inspecting the Eternal Knot before it was raised and attached to the southern wall. 

I’m grateful to everyone I see in those pictures. Thank you so much, all of you, for building this amazing place. Your work has had a profound impact on me. Living here is one of the highlights of my life. 

Just last night, I was on the front porch with two housemates, Nathan Railla and JT Buck, reading aloud from “The Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma.” I can hear the dharma so much more clearly this way. What a way to spend an evening. Thank you, noble housemates.

And, pandemic or not, my housemate, KCL Programs Manager JT Buck, is making sure this anniversary gets the celebration it merits, with roughly 30 FREE online programs taking place Sept. 17-22.  Continue…
