Karuna Girls College  

Day 10 October 12th 2014
Lumbini Nepal

Quick post today, barely able to keep my eyes open right now. This morning the group went to Peace Grove to watch Trevor, one of the group members become ordained as a Monk for the week we are in Lumbini. Trevor has been to Nepal many times before and has shown great interest in Buddhism so Metteyya suggested this trip he spends a week living as a monk.

The group went for a walk after the ceremony in one part of the village of Lumbini where we saw local homes and met Metteyya’s father. Later we had lunch at the nunnery and then walked over to the Karuna Girls College where we were greeted by all the students with handfuls of fresh Nepali flowers.

The afternoon we visited the future site of the Bodhi Institue of Peace located inside the world heritage site of Lumbini; Click here to read more about the project. Gina wasn’t feeling well this evening and I was exhausted so we went back to the hotel for the evening. While she rested I soaked up some more culture by watching Die Hard on TV.
