Lama Dudjom Dorjee Rinpoche at the Ecumenical Society of Little Rock
Lama Dudjom Dorjee Rinpoche told us last night how much he enjoyed his visit to the Ecumenical Society of Little Rock; one of the attendees had taken refuge with Rinpoche 35 years ago and showed his refuge card! Another person had attended the Black Crown Ceremony with His Holiness the 16th Karmapa, and Rinpoche commented the goodness of the group as a whole.
Ecumenical Buddhist Society Board Member Charlotte Besch said that “Rinpoche has a strong “call of the lama,” which I knew he would have. It is wonderful to see it in action.”
The atmosphere of the Ecumenical Buddhist Society center was filled with joy and laughter from his teachings.
Another board member, Melissa Gill, said “It was a great joy and honor to receive teachings from Lama Dudjom Dorjee Rinpoche this weekend. He touched us all with his bright, clear heart-mind, and wild sense of humor!”
Lakey Goff made this comment: “His visit was amazing!! What a joyful man.” c
And finally, the organizer and host for the visit, longtime KTC Dallas sangha member Aisha Credit, said:
“I am so happy that Lama D. Dorjee came to Little Rock, Arkansas and turned the Wheel of Dharma. The atmosphere of the Ecumenical Buddhist Society center was filled with joy and laughter from his teachings. I am honored to call Lama Dudjom Dorjee not only my teacher but also my friend.”
There is already discussion, we hear, that a group will start a group study of Rinpoche’s book Stillness, Insight and Emptiness.
