The Seeds of a New Project

Tuesday 21 September 2010

On a recent pilgrimage to India, the owners of the Crystal Castle met up with someone you may recognise… I wonder what this very special meeting was all about??  Stay tuned ..a very important project is going to begin at the Crystal Castle! Photo shows Sono and Naren King, and their son Toby, with His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, in his home in Dharamsala. Sono is giving His Holiness a very special gem rose quartz Buddhist beaded “mala”, which she has had in her collection for almost 15 years; he smiled and chuckled as he flipped it onto his arm!
