2. Landscaping and renovating - April 2011:

The spring is here. Not too hot and not too cold, it is sunny and cool- just perfect weather. It is time for installing the Buddhist images in the main hall. It is also the time for finishing the woodworks. After sanding and polishing with clear and glossy satin, they becomes quite smooth and shiny! The sun dries them up fast. With the dried weather it is safe to leave the finished woods outside a few extra days to reduce the strong vapor of the satin.

Here are some photos for you:


And Best Wishes!

"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."
