Dear Dhamma Brothers and Sisters,

RE : LAND ACQUISITION IN HIMALAYA REGIONS (INDIA / NEPAL)

- TUSITA HIMALAYA @INDIA
- TUSITA HIMALAYA @NEPAL


Pa-Auk Sayadaw is currently having his Vassa in the Himalaya region & the retreat place is conducive with peaceful environment & cooling weather between 10~20 degree Celcius. Necessities are built to support the retreat and a few of the locals also help in preparing food for the Sangha. A few Bhantes (including Bhante Mangala) also join Sayadaw for their Vassa retreat.

A piece of land was recently acquired in Pokhara, Nepal. It is in the Himalayas mountain region. The purpose of the land acquisition is to build a meditation village for the Sangha and the lay practitioners to do their meditation practice. More land will be acquired in the near future in India & Nepal.

After Vassa, Sayadaw together with Bhante Mangala & other Bhantes will be in Pokhara, Nepal to set up a Sima Hall at the newly purchased land. The design of the village is still in the planning stage. We will share information on the design plan when it is ready.

Letís rejoice together (Sadhu x3) on the intent of this project. Some photos have been uploaded to share with you at http://tusitahimalayanepalnindia.shutterfly.com

Sayadaw will be visiting Sri Lanka in the month of December (2010).

For those who wish to visit Sri Lanka (tentatively from 2nd to 8th Dec 2010) or would like to find out more information about the India & Pokhara project may contact the following persons :-
