A group of pilgrims arrived at the temple spending the day in meditation, listening to a recorded dharma discourse by H.H. Dorje Chang Buddha III, and paying homage to the Holy Vajra Poles. As they were about to leave, two of the Poles began to shake quite violently. Several pictures taken near the poles included the long rainbow shown above. A long rainbow like this appears on many photos taken around the temple. Several of this group returned to attend a retreat held over the Memorial Day weekend.
