The Auspicious Day
After 2 months of waiting for building permits, from every department of whatever you can imagine, the permits are now in hand. We finally had the ceremony of the laying of the first stone , It’s a massive occasion here, with the presence of the local monk and surrounded with my extended Sri Lankan family, the day was a good-un. Now watch The Lion’s Rest grow!
the auspicious ceremony will take place in the early morning this Thursday 14th March when the local Monk will conduct a blessing and chant through the night , under lights the land will be marked for digging and items will be buried a milk fire will be lit and so the Buddha will protect the land and those who come to stay.
“May the divine beings of the entire universe come here to hear the good doctrine of the King of Sages that confers both heavenly happiness and the freedom of Nibbana.”
Thank you to all involved and your kind gifts , blessed be, Mike x
