“Everyone at Danang is Strongly Motivated”

The members and supporters of Danang Foundation will be hosting His Holiness the Karmapa for two days of teachings on April 11 on the four Dharmas of Gampopa, and on April 12 for an  Akshobhya empowerment and instructions on Akshobhya practice.
Danang reports on the many preparations they have under way:

“Danang Foundation is located at two different spaces in the bustling streets of Flushing, New York. Lama Tsewang Rinpoche, founder of Danang, maneuvers his way through the heavy pedestrian traffic of Main Street between the two sites just to check in on the progress.
“The first location, which once used to serve as both office and practice center, is now the Danang Administrative Office. Here, our volunteers and staff have been busy answering calls, preparing signs, texts, cards and translations of the sadhana for the Akshobya teaching and empowerment. Everyone here gets to know each other very well because space is so tight.
“Our practice center is a few blocks away. At this location, volunteers and staff are waiting for the reliquaries to arrive so they can begin the delicate task of making sure hundreds of statues that are being offered for consecration are carefully handled and prepared. They will also be responsible for packaging all the gift bags for the empowerment.
“It has only been a little over a week, but everyone at Danang is strongly motivated to work hard and we have gotten a lot done so far. But obviously, there is still so much more left to do. We still have a month to plan and tighten things up and hope to make it a wonderful experience for both His Holiness and for all the attendees!
“Karmapa Khyenno!”
