Just back from a great road trip with Finn and her Dad, in honour of Finn turning 20 next week (yee gods!) We went first to Monaghan to visit friends and then off to Cavan to Jampa Ling to celebrate Losar - Tibetan New Year. It began with smoke puja and throwing offerings into the fire and rice into the air, then prayers in the shrine room, then the usual feast as everyone brings food to share, then chat and cups of tea and Irish music and strolls around the grounds. A wonderful place. Here's more information if you are interested: http://www.jampaling.org/.
