III. Landscaping and renovating - November 2011:

It is getting colder and the plants begin to change their leaves for the next growing season. Anyway, you can come and help out to remove that huge pile of topsoil. We continue with the minor renovations inside.

Here are some photos for you:


And Best Wishes!

At peace!

"Bodhisattvas at home should wish that all beings realize that the nature of "home" is empty, and liberate from its burdens."

-"Bồ-Tát ở nhà, nên nguyện chúng sanh, biết nhà tánh không, khỏi sự bức ngặt."

A bright day!

A sign of rain!

Beaming with sun light!

With showy colors!

A vibrant mode for November!!

A sincere offering!

To the Enlightened Ones!

"Entering a monastery, Bodhisattvas should wish that all beings, Expound various principles, Of noncontention ."(As Pure Conducts)

-"Vào Tăng-già-lam nên nguyện chúng sanh, diễn thuyết các pháp, không tranh không cải."

To the Awakening Ones!

"When entering a hall, Bodhisattvas should wish that all beings, Ascend to the unexcelled sanctuary, And rest there secure, unshakable."(As Pure Conducts)
