Tribute to Kyabjé Trulshik Rinpoche

2011.10.17
pixel
My friend Silvia explained me how to go to the Monastry of Kyabjé Trulshik Rinpoche. Maybe she expected that I would go by taxi but I decided to turn it like a challenge and go by local bus. I walk all my way through the SitaPaila village and ask for the monastry, they told me to go straight. After 25 minutes of walking in the dusty road I rise my hand and saw it. I could not be wrong, it was a magnificent white monastry on the top of the hill in front of me. I wish I would have wings T_T. I arrived at the bottom of the mountain. Then I start to climb (you can see the guy with his bike, he is heavy loaded and is about at 45 degree from the bike to be able to push it)

After a 2 and a hald hour of walking, I reach the top. The monastry is really beautifull, not completely finished yet but the finished parts are amazingly colourfull.

This is the main bulding
I was invited to put my kahtag (white scarf) and donation to Kjabjé Trulshik Rinponche and then pray with the monk.
At the end of the prayer it was noon and I was litteraly starving. The gardian of the place told me to follow the monk to go to eat, I explain him that I was not invited and just came for the tribute but he insinst. I found myself in the middle of hundred of monks having lunch, and what a marvelous lunch it was litteraly delicious.

View of Kathmandu. It looks calm and quiet from here. Illusion you will tell me but it was a peacfull illusion.
For a moment, I didn't want to left this place...ever.
I stay longer to see the view and then came back to look some time at the main bulding asking me why I was leaving Nepal.
I feel that I should not worry now and that I will come back so I left the monastry and start to climb down the moutain in the middle of the afternoon

After my looooooooong way up and looooong way down (hey I have 2 feet, don't need any taxi even when exausted ^_^)
I enjoyed home and freshly made momo with a hot lemon and ginger in the best momo place of Thamel, um I have to find again the card of the restaurant for the name sorry but it is ritten in the lonely planet ;-).
I am in PARADISE ^_^
As I was leaving that night for Hongkong, I order some extra to take away and eat them at the airport.....haha still in paradise

That night I pack and jump in a taxi for the airport. We spend the first 20 minutes in traffic, I start to worry. Then he switch of his car and it never switched on again....T_T
I helped the police man to puch the car try to make it start but it was worthless.
I jump in another taxi and I reached the airport....ouf !
Haha the police man at the entrance of the airport asked me "you have a flight ?" "no I am at the airport for sightseeing o_O"
