Samye Ling Wedding

On my journey North from England I called in to Samye-Ling Tibetan Centre, on entering the shrine room, behold there was a wedding taking place in rich splendour and ceremony. The marriage was of Tulku Ogyen Nyima and Dolkar Lhamo presided over by Akong Rinpoche and Sangha. A wonderful and happy occasion as can be seen.

Food and drink is shared by everyone present.

Speaks for itself.

Showered with blessings and silk scarves.
