This video was just uploaded of the progress of the build of the new straw-bale meditation hall at one of the centre's I;ve been associated with in Australia.
This is Vipassana Meditation Centre (VMC) Dhamma Aloka.
Some of the people in the video I know, all are volunteers.
For me, personally, its humbling to see dana taking form and manifesting in new facilities.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the video.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
