III. The early winter donations from the Buddhist pilgrims.

It is encouraging that the pilgrims, including Pt. Dieu Hong and family, have frequently joined us in making food donations, regardless of their busy schedule. May their visit be fruitful and memorable! Here are a few photos of the food donation on December 18, 2008 in Bodh Gaya, near the Inidan Monastery.
