Merit Makers & Side Notes
Thanks go out this week to Joey Gooch and Patrick McGinity for steadfastly, year after year, preparing our fire pits for the Dorje Khadro Fire puja on New Year's Eve. They take the time to set up the fire pits, maintain the fires for us and then clean up after. We are grateful to you guys for making it easy for us to burn away our negative karma and start each year with a clean slate. You are both appreciated!
