3. Landscaping and renovating - February 2011:

The weather is warmer. But the winter is still around.

We are happy with the progress. Now, the place is more suitable for our meditative practice,

There are plenty of cleaning up and shifting around after finishing the wooden platform for the Main Hall and wooden floor for the small room in the north. The old bathroom in the north looks much nicer with the new cabinet and sink.

Here are some photos for you:


A New Year Greeting !

Happy New Year !

And Best Wishes!

At home !

With compassion!

Almost done!

"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."

At work!

Nearly in order...

For meditative practice!

And chanting!

The New Year Chanting Session!

With Pure Offerings!

To the Eastern Lapis Lazuli Pure Land !

Of the Medicine King Buddha!

And the Mahabodhisattvas!

The Compassionate One-Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva!

Good Health and Merits to all!

May it be auspicious for all!

"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."

Paying respect to the enlightened Ones!

For a new space!

Then.. more books to shift!

A new cabinet...

For another old bathroom!

A warm day !

Another working day!

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

-"Nếu vào điện đường, nên nguyện chúng sanh, lên nhà vô thượng, an trụ bất động."

Work goes on !

Till sunset!

With the full moon!

For your Pure Land the new year!

A nice view, as always!
