Although most of the young women stayed in Lower-Hamlet and New-Hamlet, there were several occasions to spent time together. We had a nice stay at the lake, where the men and women swam apart, but this gave a nice energy of safety. After that we had some games to get in touch with our loving kindness and compassion.
Song for the rose festival 2nd week
Q&A by Thay: What is the most important thing in life?
In the 4th week the young adults organized the Peace Festival for Upper Hamlet. Altough at first it seemed a to big task, we joined our creative energy and soon had a program. In the end we had a very wonderful peace festival, with monastics chanting and with a dance created and performed by us. It was so beautiful, I saw a monk with tears in his eyes. The teens and children performed some songs. We ended with the beautiful new century letter from Thay. While chanting avolikiteshvara we handed out candles and in walking meditation joined as a sangha around the bonfire place. A monk lit the fire and we could through in our papers with regrets and whishes, while a group sang a nice song. The energy was very strong.
