It is the 7th Wellbeing Camp at Sylviander House, which takes place here since almost 1 year, starting in February 2015.
As mostly, beautiful morning light welcomes the tibetan team, the campaigners and the patients …
This time the team is:
Dr. Dorjee Rapten Neshar
Dr. Lhundup Dorjee
Always they arrive with heavy suitcases filled with medicine, tea, massage oil, balm …
This time Victoria can join as a campaigner again, but Sethu couldn‘t come – we will manage without him.
Victoria, Alexander and others help whatever is needed, also with translations between the doctors and the patients, who do not speak english.
Eswar is the chief of coordination! He informs the patients, hands them the application forms and tries to keep the timing. Also he will tell to Dr. Dorjee, how long he can take a nap after lunch, and then wakes him up in the right time.
As always, Tenzin Nangsel writes the bills, Yeshi Chodon and Tenzin Dhonden distribute the medicines.
Everything goes smooth. Even so many patients come to see the tibetan doctors there is no hectic.
Families come for consultation, old and young people, meanwhile some foreigners consult the doctors regularly and take the medicine for 2 months.
Among them my very good old friend Chandrakala from Germany, I haven‘t seen her for 18 years. In 1985 we met first time at Varkala Beach, which was not yet discovered by the tourists that time and so quite lonely – we were the only 2 foreigners there. She became the protagonist in a chapter of one of my books.
Of course, there are always some patients who come without registration, which causes a delay every evening. But nobody complaints, it is convenient here to sit and wait and watch the cats playing.
Because the tibetan team will visit an ayurveda museum near Thrissur on Saturday, the January Wellbeing Camp has 2 days only.
Expecting his favorite meal, potatoes and milk-cheese-soup, Dr. Dorjee is happily playing some music and gives a short dance performance for our entertainment.
Then Dr. Dorjee carefully distributes to each one a bowl of soup … milk-cheese-soup! I couldn‘t imagine before, but it really tastes good …
… and the potatoes are a perfect combination.
Since 1 year now we host this tibetan team, and as more I get to know these friendly people, it surprises me gladly, what a peaceful happy atmosphere they create when we sit together for our meals or in the evenings under the stars on the verandah.
Thanks to Dorjee la for that homely evening with a simple warm food from Tibet …
Thanks to mother nature for all the wellbeing given to us … thanks for these precious moments when spirits of plants appear in front of my eyes – in our garden …
