Khenpo Choejor

All friends of the center are welcome to attend, and please bring a dish to share (Khenpo loves vegetarian food, but whatever you bring is wonderful). Khenpo is always happy to meet new people and enjoys children too, so feel free to bring your family. It’s a tradition to greet your teacher with a khata, but your presence is more than enough.

And we have a big SECRET request!! The founder of our center, Amy Lee, has a birthday on Sunday, so the welcome dinner will double as a surprise birthday party. She has made many Dharma teachings available for all of us. Let’s surprise her with a birthday cake. Shhh!

Volunteers Needed to Prepare for Khenpo

The Friday night Book Study group will do some house cleaning for Khenpo’s arrival, and we need as many additional volunteers as possible at 7:30PM this Friday, Oct. 15. We’ll need the grass cut, windows dusted, floors swept and downstairs arranged. Bring any cleaning products/tools you have.

If you can’t volunteer, you can still contribute by donating items on the center’s wish list:

  • Paper towels
  • Toilet paper
  • Kitty litter (Ellen may need help buying Advantage for Karpo Kitty)
  • Grocery items for Khenpo (especially vegetables)
  • Tea
  • Soap
  • Laundry detergent

Special Guest, Douglas Duckworth

Douglas Duckworth, one of our dear translators, and his family will be staying at the center this weekend while attending the events for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s visit at Emory. We will invite them to share in our community dinner so you can help us welcome him and hear the voice of our translator in person!

Thank you!! If you have other ideas for ways to prepare for Khenpo, please contact
