April 6, Blessings on the Way to Pheriche

We awoke to over four inches of snow. It could have been a l-o-n-g slog to Pheriche, except we have a great group. And, along the way, Heidi one of our climbers, handed out puppets and stuffed animals to two small children that we met along the way.

We made our way ups the Dodh Kosi river; a deep green color of green, like eyes. The color of green, I’m told, that means hope.

At the Pangboche monastery, we received our blessings from the Lama Geishe, and had our Katas (scarves) blessed. And, funny, when we stepped out side the sun came out…

Geishe asked us all to “Give up all intentions to harm others for your heart
And do your best to benefit them all.
If each and everyone feels the universal responsibility to do so,
We will all enjoy the feast of Peace!”

Namaste!

At Tyengboche monastery.

On our rest day at Bengaboche, we hiked up to visit the Tyengaboche monastery.

It was a beautiful day as clouds rolled in adding to the ancient mysticism of such an incredible place.
