Observer correspondent

Monks, scholars, students and admirers from around the world assembled at the Deer Park Buddhist Center in the Town of Dunn over the weekend to commemorate the passing of the center’s founder and the dedi- cation of a Hollywood-created memo- rial statue in his honor. The July 23 ceremony, a special Guru Puja, marked the third anniver- sary of the passing of the renowned Buddhist monk, philosopher, teacher and author, the venerable Venerble Geshe Lhundub Sopa Rinpoche, who transitioned Aug. 28, 2014, into what Buddhists refer to as “the Clear Light.” Geshe Sopa, as he was known, had served as tutor to the 14th Dalai Lama and was the first Tibet- an to become a tenured professor at an American university — at the

University of Wisconsin-Madison in the South Asian studies department. With the lamas of the Tibetan Bud- dhist Gelug Order sitting cross-legged in the front row, clad in tradition- al orchid and burgundy robes and stretched out to include nuns of the order, the commemorative ceremony was led by the newly elected 104th Ganden Tripa, Jangtse Choje Rin- poche, the official head of the Gelug- pas. Jangtse Choje Rinpoche was in the midst of presenting the second of the two summer courses he had been scheduled to teach at the center, 4548 Schneider Drive. The center was purchased in 1981 with the intent of hosting the Kalachakra empowerment initiation by the Dalai Lama and serving as a teaching center for Buddhist philos- ophy. Since then, it has held regular philosophical classes on the Buddha’s

teaching, known as the Dharma, as well as ceremonies such as this Guru Puja, to practice the religious side of Buddhism. Jangtse Rinpoche remarked during this special memorial service, which was “dedicated to the swift and aus- picious return of our precious guru,” Gehse Sopa, “The best way we can show our gratitude for the kindness of Geshe Sopa is to practice his teach- ings.” The Head of the Order asked each person who had known Geshela (“la,” being the Tibetan suffix desig- nating honor as well as admiration and respect), to search within them- selves to remember his words, recall his teachings. For those too young to have met the center’s forefather, Tri-Rinpoche encouraged them – and everyone else – to read the books

A little improvisation

Venue change prompts new approach for Straw Hat Players

SCOTT DE LARUELLE

Unified Newspaper Group

When you’re a theater company and you lose your theater, it’s a pretty significant obstacle. But the show must go on, of course, and the Oregon Straw Hat Play- ers are taking their tem- porary venue change in stride as they prepare for two weeks of shows at new locations with a new approach. The Players are known for putting on a large musical show each sum- mer, but with the Oregon High School Performing

Arts Center off-limits due to HVAC repairs, a poten- tial roadblock was turned into an opportunity, show producer Steve Zach told the Observer last week. “We usually plan these for a long time, because we have to get the rights, get the director and orga- nize that, so it was kind of, ‘Oh, what do we do?’” he said. “Do we go through a summer not doing one because of the

last-minute nature of this, or do we do something

else?”

An answer was provid-

ed by a pair of OSHP vet- erans who came up with

a plan to both stretch the group out creatively and adapt to the confines of

a smaller stage and pro-

duction – a recent piece on the life and works of

Village of Oregon

Sewer claims will cost $6,845

Board agrees to pay three homeowners after setting new policy

BILL LIVICK

Unified Newspaper Group

The Village Board on Monday unanimously authorized the village to pay three residents for damages that occurred in January when san- itary sewers in their homes backed up. The residents – Debbie Tennyson, Pam Lund and Shawn Christensen

– filed insurance claims with the vil- lage earlier this year seeking com- pensation, but in March the board voted to deny the claims. At the

same meeting, however, village offi- cials said they hoped to find a way to pay the claims, as long as they weren’t setting a legal precedent in doing so. The three claims, totaling $19,219, were the result of two sewer back- ups on March 5 at residences on Ash Street and one Jan. 21 on East Neth- erwood Road. On Monday, the board approved a $5,000 payment to Tennyson, a $1,365 payment to Lund and a $480 payment to Christensen. Public works director Jeff Rau said the blockages were caused by a large “root mass” growing in the sewer pipes, which “catches” objects that shouldn’t be in the sewer line. He said the village worked to remove the blockages once he and his staff

were alerted to the problem. Earlier this month, the board approved a policy to assist home- owners in such circumstances. It sets aside $30,000 a year from sewer utility funds to essentially self-in- sure for claims from homeowners when sanitary sewers back up into their basements. Considered a “rare” event, staff and trustees agreed it would allow the village to be respon- sive but save money on the other option: no-fault insurance through the League of Wisconsin Municipal- ities, at roughly $18,000 a year. The policy limits payments to a maximum of $5,000 per claim. Contact Bill Livick at bill.livick@ wcinet.com

Peaceful Heart receives $10K for façade

BILL LIVICK

Unified Newspaper Group

Peaceful Heart Gifts and Books is the first business to benefit from the vil- lage’s new façade grant program. The Village Board last Monday approved Doris and John Deits’ grant application, and the busi- ness owners will receive a $10,000 grant to help defray the $39,000 cost of improving their building at 123 S. Main St. They plan improvements to the south and west facades of

their historic building. The village revised its program to help down- town property owners who need financial assis- tance to improve building facades in June. The program is limited to properties in or imme- diately adjacent to the downtown tax-increment financing district – TID 3. It allows village fund- ing of up to 25 percent of total project costs, not to exceed $5,000 per facade, and requires property owners to document their matching contribution to the project.

Oregon resident Alexan- dra Christensen was award- ed a gold medal last week at the SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills con- ference in Louisville, Ken- tucky. She was awarded for her advertising design

- participants were required

to design a logo, hang tag and coffee cup holder for a non-profit organization. “I didn’t think I would get

a medal because I used the wrong proportions on one of my pieces,” Christensen said in a news release. “I learned not to give up.” She was among 15 Madi- son Area Technical College students and advisors who

competed at the conference, according to the release. More than 6,000 career and technical education stu- dents competed hands-on in

100 different trade, techni- cal and leadership fields. Her involvement in Skill- sUSA began at Oregon High School, where she learned desktop publishing and competed in photog- raphy. Now a liberal arts

transfer student, she will serve as page designer for the Clarion, Madison Col- lege’s student newspaper, in the coming school year, according to the release.

producer and artistic guru

of our group, and Duane

Draper, who is similar, said, ‘Let’s do ‘Sondheim on Sondheim,’” Zach said. “This fit perfectly

– it’s a piece Duane and

David wanted to do, and

it hasn’t been done in the

area.” The show, which hit Broadway a few years ago, is different from the typical musical, as it’s more of a review, Zach said, which suits the group’s situation this year. “It’s compilation of Sondheim works,” he said. “It also has a vid- eo of Sondheim, talking about his life and career, and then the music fills in and carries the story and weaves a web of Sond- heim’s life and his music together. (It’s) a limited cast as opposed to play a musical; it’s not like we have big sets and lots of costumes – it’s more of a cabaret dinner theater sort of production.” To host the productions, the group will travel to two new locations – the theater in Prairie View Elemen- tary School and a down- town restaurant, Charlie’s on Main. The first week’s shows, set for Aug. 4-6, will be at PVE, while the shows from Aug. 10-12 will be above Charlie’s on 113 N. Main St., where a

Described by The New York Times as “the greatest and perhaps best-known artist in the American musical theater,” Stephen Sondheim has received an Academy Award, eight Tony Awards, eight Grammy Awards, a Pulit- zer Prize and a 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom. His best-known works include A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Merrily We Roll Along, Sunday in the Park with George, Into the Woods, West Side Story and Gypsy.

seat around 100 people, so space is limited, compared to past shows at the spa- cious high school PAC “This is different – it will be more intimate,” he said. “We don’t have sets, we don’t do costumes … it’s performances of songs set to a story that’s shown by video interview foot- age of Sondheim,” he said, noting that a small orches- tra will provide the live music.

Letters to the editor

Thanks to all volunteer coaches

Over the last seven to eight years, our son has had the opportunity to grow and learn from a group of amazing parent coaches. As we approach our last baseball tournament and the end of youth sports for this class, we wanted to say “thank you.” These men have invested so much of their time with so many of our sons throughout the years. We would like to personally thank Dave Jameson, Mike Statz,

Tim Erickson, Mike Victorson and all the other dads that invested so much time working with our kids. It was a privilege to watch our kids become young men under your guidance. We look forward to the next four years where you get to sit in the stands with us and enjoy watching your own sons play sports.

Unified Newspaper Group is proud to offer a venue for public debate and welcomes letters to the editor, provided they comply with our guidelines. Letters should be no longer than 400 words. They should also contain contact information – the writer’s full name, address, and phone number – so that the paper may confirm authorship. Unsigned or anonymous letters will not be printed under any circumstances. The editorial staff of Unified Newspaper Group reserves the right to edit letters for length, clarity and appropriateness. Letters with libelous or obscene content will not be printed. Letters that are strictly personal – lost pets, for example – will not be print- ed. Letters that recount personal experiences, good or bad, with individual businesses will not be printed unless there is an overwhelming and compel- ling public interest to do so. Letters that urge readers to patronize specific businesses or specific religious faiths will not be printed, either. “Thank- you” letters can be printed under limited circumstances, provided they do not contain material that should instead be placed as an advertisement and reflect public, rather than promotional interests. Unified Newspaper Group encourages lively public debate on issues, but it reserves the right to limit the number of exchanges between individual let- ter writers to ensure all writers have a chance to have their voices heard.

Happy to take my turn leading the senior center

F or the past 37 years, the Oregon Area Senior Center was led by just two

very capable directors: Alison

Koelsch for the last 20 years and Nell Mally for the first 17. They saw the center grow from a mere idea in the minds of community activists into the sol- id organization it is today. Now

I step into that role as the third

director, hav- ing benefitted greatly from the years I spent working

for Alison, and

a professional

lifetime devot- ed mainly to people born prior to 1957.

lifetime devot- ed mainly to people born prior to 1957. Brickner I have been involved with

Brickner

I have been

involved with seniors in the community since the 1970s, when my grandmother moved into Oregon Manor. Each time my parents announced that it was time to go visit her, some of my siblings would declare they suddenly had to finish their homework, walk the dog or clean the chicken house. I would go find my sketchbook

and my violin and get in the car.

I had found there was a senior

at the manor who drew marvel-

ous cartoons, and another who was an accomplished fiddler. I enjoyed visiting with them, and

I always came home happier for having made the trip.

I should have realized at

that point that I was destined to spend my professional life

working with seniors, but it took me several more years to come to that conclusion. Eventually,

I worked as a geriatric nurse,

a position that allowed me to

experience the satisfaction of helping seniors and the pleasure of hearing their tales about the past. Stories about bygone times have always held my interest, and I especially enjoy the ones that focus on local life. One of my great-grandfathers came here from England as a young man, and in the 1880s, he set- tled on a farm in Fitchburg, on

Fish Hatchery Road. He and his wife raised a large family there, including a daughter who became my grandmother. My grandmother raised a large family of her own. While the economic necessities of the Great Depression drove them around the state in search of a

way to put food in their mouths,

my grandparents spent much of their lives in Oregon. My mother graduated from Oregon High School with the Class of 1944.

I grew up hearing the stories

of many of Oregon’s original families that my mother told me,

some of which she had heard from her own parents and grand- parents. While the Oregon area has grown and changed a lot even in just the last 20 years, it

is helpful to have some perspec- tive on Oregon’s past.

I am a fourth-generation

local, and other than the one misguided year when I lived in the Appleton area shortly after

college, I have lived in the Ore- gon School District all my life.

I grew up on the Hog’s Back

between Oregon and Brooklyn (that would be County Trunk Hwy. MM in modern parlance). In addition to my historical

perspective on Oregon, I also have the pleasure of knowing

a lot of people who live in the

area. There is a tremendous amount of satisfaction in work-

ing for people with whom I feel

a sense of connection.

As a teenager, and through college, I worked for the Oregon Observer and spent much time literally running advertising copy around town. Every week, the grocery ad would be deliv-

ered to Paul’s Grocery Store for

him to review. Little did I know then that the grocery store building would eventually morph into today’s Senior Center. I certainly did not anticipate then that I would spend so many hours of my life here.

I remember just how difficult

it was to get to this building from the Observer’s office (which was then located next to Dad’s Barbershop on Janesville

Street, in the building that now houses Gerlach’s Flooring) before there were any traffic lights downtown, and no Hwy. 14 bypass behind the high school. The joke in town was: Do you know how to get to the other side of Main Street in Oregon? The answer was: Yes, be born there. Now it is easy to get to this building, no matter from which direction you approach. It is also

easy to get help here, which is one of the reasons I feel fortu- nate to be the new director. The staff here is friendly, capable and committed to serv- ing our area seniors, whether they have lived in the area all of their lives, or just moved in today. The staff is supported in this

endeavor by a large group of amazing volunteers who give freely of their time and talents to improve the lives of the seniors in the community (while bene- fitting themselves from the good

feelings they get from helping others). I feel privileged to work with these generous souls. People familiar with the Senior Center probably will not notice any big changes with a new director in place. While we

are always striving to improve, our Senior Center is strong and not in need of big changes. The strength and stability of the

Center is largely due to the dedi- cated efforts of the two previous directors, the staff, the volun- teers and the seniors in the area. I feel honored to be entrusted with the leadership of an organi- zation that encompasses so many inspiring people, in the commu- nity I have always been happy to call home. Please stop in and say hello, regardless of whether we are already acquainted and let me know if you have ideas about how we can continue to strengthen our organization.

Rachel Brickner is the direc- tor of the Oregon Area Senior Center.

Oregon native returns for military fundraiser

An Oregon native on active duty in the Air Force in Florida is returning home for a fundraiser to help oth- ers in the military. Keean Paltz, who grad- uated from Oregon High School in 2012, is between deployments and decided to

use the visit home to plan a “K9s for a Cause” fundrais- er at his family’s pet busi- ness, Old Stone Pet Lodge.

The event, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, July 29, will include a dog wash and nail clippings, food for pur- chase, vendors, a silent auc- tion and a Madison police K9 demonstration. All pro- ceeds will go to the Amer- ican Warrior Initiative, which partners with Sun Prairie organization Custom Canines to help bring dogs to people in need, Paltz explained. “I just like helping people out,” he said. “Being in the military I have friends that suffer from various issues, as in depression or PTSD,

things like that.” He said planning the event from Florida was “stressful, but very reward- ing” and added that his parents played a huge part in the process. He said he hopes the event can become an annual fundraiser. The K9 show will be “lat- er in the afternoon,” fea- turing a bite demonstration and a search and rescue demonstration.

Scott Novotny

Scott A. Novotny, age 55, of New Glarus, passed away on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at his home. He was born on Jan. 25, 1962, in Madison, the son of Ralph Novotny and Gloria (Fritsch) Novotny. He graduated from Ore- gon High School in 1980. Scott married Sherry Otis on March 19, 1988. Scott took pride in running his own business, “Quality True Value Hardware”, which has been fami- ly owned for almost 50 years. He was also proud to work with the Porch- light homeless shelters. Scott loved fishing, hunting, camping, and rid- ing his Harley. He espe- cially enjoyed bike nights with his good friends in Vinyl Thunder. Scott loved working in his yard, was a jack of all trades and enjoyed building any- thing. Sherry would dream it, and he would build it. He especially loved building Sophia’s play- house and spending time with her in it, she was and will always be his little

princess. Many of his friends will remember his “playboy van”. Scott had a won- derful sense of humor and always had a smile on his face. No one was ever surprised to see Scott hanging from his toes. He brought out the best in everyone and believed everyone deserved a sec- ond chance. He loved spending time with his family and was a loving husband, son, father and grand- father. Scott is survived by his wife of nearly 30 years, Sherry; sons, Shane (Sara) Novotny and Sky- ler (Stephanie Strandlie) Novotny; daughter, Shaw- na (Edwin Kovacs) Novot- ny; grandson, Michael Johnson; granddaughter, Sophia Novotny; sister, Lisa Novotny; mother-in- law, Lorraine Otis; father- in-law, Delbert Otis; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and many special friends. Funeral services will be held at gunderson east funeral and cremation care, 5203 Monona Dr., Madison, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, July 26, 2017. Visitation will be held at the funeral home from 3 p.m. until 7 p.m. on Wednesday. Scott has touched so many lives and will be greatly missed by many. “If you love life then life loves you back”.

Getting Our Lives in Order “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my loving eye on you.” –Psalm 32:8 NIV

If you are unhappy with your life, or with certain aspects of it– and everyone has some area of their life that needs work – perhaps it is because you have tried to manage it by yourself. It might relieve you to know that God has a better plan for your life than you do, and it takes a lot of the pressure off ourselves when we decide to live by God’s plan. We aren’t responsible for our being here, since none of us created ourselves, and so it shouldn’t surprise us to realize that our Creator already has a plan for us. We should of course take some responsibility for our own well-being, striving to be as happy, healthy and virtuous as possible, but putting the responsibility for our entire life and life plan on ourselves is too heavy a burden. It is folly to try to be the engineer and director of our own lives. Many of us have lived poorly by following our own path and need some help from God to get it together. Consider God’s word as a user’s manual for how to get your life together. If you’re not sure what God has planned for you, a good place to start in the Bible is the Book of Proverbs. It is filled with Godly wisdom for living a good life. – Christopher Simon

Originally from Madison, cur- rently living in Oregon Occupation/place of employment or business name: Oregon Area Fire EMS District Who are the members of your family?: Cindy (Mom) 54, Brian (Dad) 56, Jesse (Brother) 19, Cheddar (Dog) 9, Lucy (Dog) 3. How long have you lived in the area?: I have lived in the area for two years. What organizations are you involved in and how long have you been with them?: I am currently in

the final year of a three-year internship here at the fire department. Throughout the internship I have gone to school to advance my skills in both the fire and emergen- cy medical services. Most recently I have completed paramedic schooling and now I use those skills in pro- tecting the community. How else are you active in the community?: Not only do I get to interact with people in their time of need as a result of my job at the fire department, I am able to see friendly faces in the community on a daily basis. Participating in community events and giving tours of the fire station are just some

of the things I do. How do you feel you help make a difference in your community?: I think that it’s not how I make a difference in my community as much as how the community makes a difference in my life. With the support and kindness from the members of the community, I go to work almost every day with a smile on my face. It makes me happy knowing that I am going to interact with some of the nicest people around and potentially make a differ- ence in their lives as well. Hobbies/interests: In my free time I like to spend time with friends and family, play

‘I get a huge amount of satisfaction from serving the community.

During every incident that I am paged out to, regardless of the situation, there is a time that I know that me being there is making

a difference for someone. Sometimes, I see it right in front of my face with a smile and someone saying thank you. Sometimes, it’s just the way the situation de-escalates. It is an indescribable feeling knowing that you personally made a difference to someone. That feeling is something that I can be proud of. ‘

sports and play with my dogs. Whenever I go home during my time off, you can usually catch my friends and I playing intense games of basketball in my driveway or playing fetch with my dogs. Usually, my dogs think that they are playing basketball as well and try to join in. What do you like best about your community and why?: I love the atmosphere of Oregon. Everyone is extremely friendly and polite. Whether it is stopping by the fire station or seeing someone in public, everyone is almost always smiling. Although I have not lived in Oregon my whole life, I feel as if I have been welcomed

into the community as if I have lived here forever. What personal satisfac-

tion do you get from serving in your community?: I get a huge amount of satisfaction from serving the community. During every incident that

is something that I can be

proud of. If money were no object, what kind of gift would

you give your community?:

If money were no object, I

would set up an after school program that mentors and

helps troubled kids. I think

that a lot of “trouble makers” and “bad kids” get a bad reputation in the community

and all communities in gen- eral. I think that people put

a label on these kids without

knowing their story or even attempting to learn it. I think by helping these kids who will become our future leaders, our community and all communities will benefit greatly.

What personal satisfaction do you get from serving in your community?: I enjoy the work I do because it gives me a sense of being helpful to others, and filling a need in our community. But more than that, I meet so many good people going through rough times that I feel blessed to have a life without those worries, and it makes me want to do all that I can to help these families and ease their worries. If money were no object,

what kind of gift would you give your community?: I would love to give our com- munity a great family park like Bay Beach in Green Bay. It would be a sprawling, green park with kiddie rides, a mer- ry-go-round, bumper cars, and elaborate play structure with bridges and look-out towers and slides, and a wad- ing pool with spraying and showering water features. It would have a large picnic area with covered shelters for large

family gatherings or company picnics for employees. A large air conditioned community building could bring in enter- tainment or show movies in summer and winter, or hold old-fashioned Friday night dances for teens.

‘I feel very strongly about easing fears and worries of families in our community that need to choose between paying rent or buying groceries. I’ve worked hard, along with our other coordinators, to bring improvements to our food pantry to better provide food to these families, along with personal care items, detergents, and books for children, to offer them a well- rounded healthy life.’

gents, and books for children, to offer them a well-rounded healthy life.

Hobbies/interests: I love antiquing and restoring antiques and floor lamps back to their original beauty. I also enjoy crafting and sewing, walking 2 miles every day with my dog, and biking around town with my husband. What do you like best about your community and why?: I like the small town feel. Oregon has quadrupled in size since I moved here, but

I can still go into the grocery store and everyone knows my name. While out walking, peo- ple I pass always smile and say “Hi “or “how are you?” Strangers will sometimes stop and chat before going

on their way. I love the lovely historic homes and downtown buildings. And I’ve come to learn just how generous and open-hearted the residents in our community are to one another. I couldn’t imagine a better place to live and raise

a family.

where they can have fun. We try to have different activities going on here at the pool for kids to do. Hobbies/interests:

Obviously, I like pretty much anything having to do with water. Love to swim, be out- doors, kayak, pretty much anything involving water. I like being outdoors. What do you like best about your community and why?: I like that Oregon still has a bit of the small town feel that I grew up in. You can still walk down the street and people will say “Hi” and strike up a conver- sation. I love that whether you grew up here or just moved in there is a sense of belonging to the community once you are here. I gen- uinely feel that people are constantly trying to make Oregon a great place to live and work. What personal satisfac- tion do you get from serving in your community?: I feel like I’m helping people, I’m giving them things to do in their own community without having to leave here. If money were no object, what kind of gift would you give your community?:

I would build an indoor/ outdoor aquatic facility that could house not only our competitive community but also our families and individ-

uals that enjoy the water. It would be a community space

that the people could use any time of year to get active and stay healthy. We don’t have anything like that, with indoors and outdoors, like a big community center for aquatics.

the Oregon Area Food Pantry since 2003, a coordinator since 2012, Chair of the Management Committee since 2015, and became a board of director in 2016 when the board began. How else are you active in the community?: I am an active volunteer at my church having been on the pastoral council for six years, Parish Life Committee for four years and various other activities. My husband and I volunteer for Special Olympics at the state level to provide eyecare to the athletes. How do you feel you help make a difference in your community?: I feel very strongly about easing fears and worries of families in our community that need to choose between paying rent or buying groceries.

Statue: Geshe Sopa founded Deer Park monastery, tutored Dalai Lama

Continued from page 1

written by the First Abbot of Deer Park, listen to his recorded teaching sessions and learn about the humble man whose life’s mission was the opening of The Dharma in each person’s heart he encountered. And now, the likeness of Geshe Sopa reaches out to those followers, emanating his unfeigned smile.

Detailed image

Among those followers were three people who con- tributed the funds to design and create the life-size memorial statute of their beloved Geshe Sopa: Jeffrey and Suemay Lin and (moth- er). Lin Tai Tai. “He changed my heart,” Jeffrey Lin said. “I was a changed person after that. My thoughts changed, my life changed.” Never having taken the Buddha’s teachings to heart before his encounter with Sopa, Lin, retiring and soft-spoken, explained it was the monk’s radiant sense of happiness and serenity that acted like a spiritual conta- gion. The resonant sense of uni- versal compassion for all sentient beings, he said, has never gone away. It is some- thing he now exudes with- out effort, a changed attitude toward the world that is obvi- ous to anyone interacting with him. The family’s donation allowed the center’s memori- al committee to contract Leg- acy Effects out of Los Ange- les to produce the painstak- ingly detailed, uncannily realistic statue. Legacy has won “Best Visual Effects” at the Academy Award nomi- nations for its contributions to sci-fi thrillers “Real Steel” (2011) and “Iron Man”

(2008).

One of the founding part- ners of the company, Alan Scott, was on hand Sunday, as was Jason Matthews, who spent a year creating the stat- ue – including six weeks on the face alone. Born in New York and raised in Texas, Matthews moved to Hollywood in 1994 to work at the celebrated Stan Winston Studios, which became Legacy Effects in 2008. An oil painter as well

People from around the world attended a special ceremony July 23 to honor Geshe Sopa, the founder of the Deer Park Buddhist Center in the Town of Dunn. It was led by the Gelugpas (yellow hat sect members of Tibetan Buddhism).

as sculptor, Matthews has an extensive list of credits in the world of cinematography. They range from sci fi block- busters like “The Lost World:

Jurassic Park,” “Avatar” and “Indiana Jones and the King- dom of the Crystal Skull” to action films like “John Car- ter” and “The Bourne Leg- acy,” as well as two of the “Twilight” movies. His process for creating the commemorative art piece began with studying the photos of the geshe, whom he’d never met. Through hi-resolution scanning and design, Matthews transposed the two-dimensional imag- ery into a three-dimensional sculpture that was true-to-life in form and feature, using clay as the modeling sub- stance over which was laid a veneer of silicon. “I inserted each hair by hand,” Matthews told a group after the ceremony.

Celebrating the geshe

Sopa seems to have had

profound emotional effects on the spiritual sensibilities

of many people. That is, perhaps, why

more than 200 people came for the extensive Guru Puja ceremony, along with Tsok,

a two-way gifting where

celebrants are treated to Tibetan tea, tsampa and other ceremonial consum- ables while they contribute some edibles that will later be placed on the center’s grounds as offerings to all the sentient beings who inhabit the property, be they animal or otherwise. The puja ritual was per- formed in Tibetan with full audience participation – many of whom were part of the Tibetan Diaspora, now resettled in the Madison area. Afterward, Tri-Rinpoche Jangtse Choje explained the significance of Geshe Sopa’s legacy, which continues through the center, and also, Tri-Rinpoche said, through the many books Sopa authored in English, includ- ing the five-volume compre- hensive teaching, “Steps on the Path to Enlightenment.” First, Choje asked those who knew Sopa to recall his kindness, then he describ- ing Sopa’s influence on their lives and how he came to be one of the most influ- ential teachers in the Bud- dhist world. Sopa, born of a hum- ble farming family from the Tsang region in Tibet, became a spiritual guide

and respected academic

and eventually helped raise

a generation of Ameri-

can-born Buddhist scholars, now dually trained in both Western and Eastern philo- sophic traditions. The Ganden Throne Holder recounted how Sopa began teaching in the Bud- dhist studies program at UW–Madison in 1967 and retired more than 30 years later as professor emeritus. He persuaded His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, to perform the first Kalachakra initi- ation in the West at Deer Park in 1981, and Sopa was the First Abbot there. The Dalai Lama, in fact, composed a prayer of

request for the swift return

of Geshe Sopa, which was

presented at the ceremony. It has been incorporated as the

special invocation recited by lay-people and monastics alike at Deer Park. It speaks

of Sopa’s knowledge, under-

standing, accomplishments and influence:

“As Buddha’s teaching decline, little left behind, just common words for explanation and practice, you hold Dharma scriptures and realizations: Posses- sor of true meaning, please quickly return.”

Posses- sor of true meaning, please quickly return.” Photo by Tristan McGough Encased in glass, a
