Everest Base Camp Trek: Grom & Team Receive Blessing from Lama Geshe

Today our group had an audience with Lama Geshe, one of the highest ranking Lamas in the Khumbu Valley.  We all felt a little nervous going into his small dark house because we didn’t know what to expect.  As we ducked low to enter the old wooden Sherpa house we had our Katas (silk scarves) in hand as well as something to be blessed by the Lama.  Being in the presence of greatness made us all fall silent with smiles fixed on our faces.  Lama Geshe led us through mantras that would remind us to send love and peace out to all sentient beings.  Then he blessed our small possessions such as gifts for loved ones back home or something special to us.  He finished by blessing our Katas and tying a protective string around our necks.  After a head butt and a warm smile he sent us our our way.  We all feel fortunate to have met this spiritual figure.  Now we just ate a great dinner in Pheriche and are preparing for some cards before tucking in for the night.
