  • Floating Pyramid Lamp With 108 Spiritual Symbols

    Hi Roger,I am just checking in as when I was in Thailand at the Elephant World Sanctuary, I began to have thoughts about you. Are you OK? I certainly hope your health and peace of mind are in top form!We had the lamp blessed 3x's - the first time at the Temple of the Golden Buddha and the monk was very impressed with the lamp and admired it from different angles! We had a Thai guide and interpreter! She got us the meeting with the monk and then reported his words back to us. Next, we sat the lamp in a chair during a monk's welcome to Elephant World. And, thirdly, we went to a local Temple and the head monk did a very thorough blessing! I posted a picture of it on FB!I just got home around 10:30 last night! It was such an amazing trip.

And, thirdly, we went to a local Temple and the head monk did a very thorough blessing! I posted a picture of it on FB!I just got home around 10:30 last night! It was such an amazing trip. Doing the volunteering at the Elephant Sanctuary was hard work! I hoed, planted corn, cut with a sickle bana grass, bamboo and sugar cane, cleaned daily truck loads of either watermelons, root veggies and other melons of pesticides which meant scooping them into a bin of water, letting them soak for 10 min. then transferring them to a 2nd bin, and, finally, putting them in bushel baskets, carried huge bushel baskets of food for each of the elephants, trekked into the jungle to bed the elephants and more...The elephants are so so remarkable and I must admit I was just a tad afraid of them so I couldn't like hug a trunk...as I saw a few people get "trunked" if they over touched! These beasts are like huge! And they've been through so much after being used in the trekking, logging and entertainment industries! I'm so glad they are being so well taken care of at this sanctuary and others places like it around the world.Best to you, Roger! Mike and I were just talking about you - Mike was telling me he ordered a watch that fell apart in his hands and I said, "You should have contacted Roger! He'd know how to fix it!"Anyway, hope you are doing well, Roger! Best to you always, Barbara
