remembering dagpo rinpoche, i forgot to post about this place: kaliandra. beside having my first tibetan teaching here last december, i found an amazing sanctuary in the middle of pasuruan. pasuruan for goodness sake, in east java! it’s a vast 17 hectare of land at mount arjuna, organic farming, an amazing paladeo buildings and beautiful garden (or forest?) that makes you literally time travel to another world. it’s a little absurd experience but it’s completely unforgettable. the next pictures would speak for themselves.
