Karma Yoga from a Distance --This Week's Lotus Production

Over the week-end I made a few Lotus Blossoms to further our Lotus Blossom production required  for our Summer 2017 participation in the 250th Anniversary of Conway, MA. I am not the most handy person but found the process relaxing. And my lotus blossoms improved in quality the more I did one. To read about this Community project visit here

If anyone would like to learn how to make these and needs a supply of pre-cut paper and twist ties, please contact the Khandroling Paper Cooperative to request materials and to record your hours towards Karma Yoga. By the summer of 2017 we will need thousands for our paper float and to distribute to by-standers attending the parade. 

The Lotus is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols of Buddhism. Over the year we will explore the many aspects of the Lotus throughout the history of Buddhism.
