Moving stones – early May 2018

Putting limestone on the paths to stupas.

Carrying stones to the stupas for fill in front of the new wall.

With Fran, Christine, Simone, Bruce and Annie.

And thanks Reinier for the loan of your trailer.

Pouring Concrete – 19 March

Many thanks to Sean who kindly donated a pump and installed it, so now we have running water at the stupas.

Many thanks to the Grafiela and Alex at Puhoi Honey who donated a large amount of honey before xmas.  We sold the honey and bought a new concrete mixer with the proceeds.

Thanks to these generous donations, Simone, Bruce and Annie were able to pour concrete into the wall.

Moving stones – 17th March

Many thanks to Rodney who donated a large pile of stones.   We moved most of these stones and a large pile of builders mix over to the stupas.  Unfortunately our tractor tray broke so we hired a cute little dumpster at the last minute.  Many thanks to all helpers; Dr Lodoe, Sonam, Tenzin, Yesshe, Christine, Ellen, Lay, Melissa, Bruce and Annie.

Learning how to be block-layers – Jan -Feb 2018

We moved an enormous number of concrete blocks for the new walls.  Also now learning to lay blocks for new walls around stupas 7 and 8…..with Sean, Madu, Simone, Bruce, Naomi and Annie.

Latest Plan – 20 November 2017

Who ever is connected to Stupas will be liberated. That is what the Buddha says – these are his words. We can Rejoice at all the people connecting to this. That is the purpose of the Stupa – to purify negativities and increase Wisdom.

Ven. Lama Samten

Below is latest plan showing underground steel rods holding 4 retaining walls together around Stupas 5-8.  New walls around all 8 stupas and meditation room.
