Orientation and Maroke, Party Gets Started

Tonight at Diamond Mountain things really got started. The evening began with a community dinner followed by an orientation / community meeting and finally the maroke exam debate. Everyone of the thirteen debaters did wonderfully and were honored with a small ceremony.

My debate topics; the ten qualities of a qualified Lama given by Je Tsongkapa and the six steps of staying in the suffering world as taught by Lord Maitreya.

We've got some images of today and tonight's happenings:
