Helping with the Gardens
The participants also had the opportunity to earn merit and work together as a sangha when Rinpoche organized for everyone to assist the garden staff in the planting of new flowers and bushes around the World Peace Stupa. This was an activity much enjoyed by all the participants and appreciated by the garden staff.
