Rendering the new strawbale meditation hall

Postby Ben » Thu Nov 18, 2010 8:12 am

Hi all

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.
kind regards

Ben
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Excellent! :clap:

May buddhas and arhats soon fill the vihara!

Wow thanks for posting this Ben. I recognised at least 3 dhamma friends in there. Jarrah, Johnny and maybe Spider (not sure). Definitley Johnny and Jarrah. Reminds me of way back when we did the same work for the hall at Dhamma Bhumi. I think I saw Annie and Harold in there too.
