North Carolina pilgrimage

I’m on day two of a journey to Urban Dharma, a new Dharma Center in Asheville. I don’t know a whole lot about the center just yet. I have been told many good things, but I’m going for myself, to investigate (and to spend quality time with friends and to receive authentic Dharma teachings). For now, I am in Davidson NC where I will help out a little by picking up the Khenpo who is teaching this weekend. Actually what a blessing to be able to spend an hour or two with an authentic Lama!

Last night, I had quality conversations over chrysanthemum infusions. Plus I got to see many goodies which are just back from Nepal, which will be for sale in the Urban Dharma store – go to for more about purchasing Buddhist ritual items. This included a moderate sized stupa which needs to be filled, several statues for the center itself (not for sale) and I heard about many relics which were given for the sake of filling the multiple statues and stupas.

Most importantly, at least for my good-sized self-clinging ego, is that I have four days off from work, meaning my feet and legs can get some needed rest before I dive back in next week. I will take pictures when I get to the Center tomorrow and post them when I get back to C’ville next week. Yay!
