Dear supporters and friends,
Thank you very much for your ongoing support during the past few months!
Autumn is slowly aproaching and the turbulent spring and summer are coming to an end. Like for all of us, the Covid-19 crisis has left its marks also in Gomde. Our dear nuns from Nagi Gompa, Ani Tsering Chödrön and Ani Tenzin Sangmo, have been our rocks of inspiration and peace during the past months, for which we are immensely grateful. Since the spread of the Corona virus all over the world, we have been including the practice of a manifestation of Tara, Parnashvari, in our daily practice schedule. She is said to eliminate contagious diseases and negative emotions.
Since the implementation of various health-regulations by our Austrian government, there have been some changes in the way volunteers and guests live at Gomde. The most noticeable one is the big plexiglass shield in front of the food serving counter. Also, guests get glass water bottles to refill their water in their private rooms. At every entrance, you will find disinfection spray, and everyone is expected to wash their hands before meals. We found a great way of encouraging proper social distancing by putting stickers of flowers on the floor to the food distribution. These measures are important to prevent the Corona virus from spreading and we are happy that they are not impairing any of Gomde’s warm and welcoming atmosphere.
Over the past four months, there have been some online and offline seminars with Lama Tenzin, our nuns from Nagi Gompa, Lama Thierry and Ulli Olvedi. All of them were a great success and especially during these times a great opportunity for all participants who could attend.
Many thanks to all supporters, volunteers and donors, without whom Gomde would not exist!
