Award Ceremony


Finally, the day we were looking forward to had come. It’s a great (though very long) day with joy and uplifted spirit. I’m grateful to Soraj, Yontan, Jick, Nuch & Nut, who shared my happiness today. Yidrol couldn’t join us but sent us some fruits. The award is dedicated to Jetsun Tara and our Bodhisattva’s work. May beings be well and in peace!





The day started with nuns’ chant. Great time for contemplation




The award is to encourage us to continue working and caring for others.

    It was really a wonderful event. Although it was long but it was arranged in such a positive and optimistic atmosphere. At one point I was thinking of the power of women and their ability to change the world. All share commonality of unconditional love , determination, compassion and desire to make a better world…and that inspire me to be a better person..Thank you kha Ajarn for giving me an opportunity to see the world from different angles and continue to be my inspiration. Congratulation again na kha

    I thought of the Thai expression “be polite but not weak”. Women sometimes think they have no ability to do a daunting work. But with unweaving determination and unconditioned love, everything is possible. The event encourages us to think bigger and brings us great sisters from all over the globe.
