A BIG day today! Finally our building is complete and we had the blessing ceremony. We invited 5 monks, 20 important adults, 5 young adults from Anjali House (half way house for former Street Children where I started when I first came here) and all of our 160 students.
The ceremony was held outside for the first part and then inside the sewing workshop for the second part. While the ceremonies were going on all of the children played outside although several of them tried to sneak into the proceedings. It was a wonderful mixture of excitement, games, laughter and the ceremonial chanting from the monks. One of my happiest and most profound days in Cambodia to date.
Among the many blessings we asked for a blessing for all the sponsors and donors who have made this building possible and we also asked for a blessing on their ancestors as well.
