Dear Friends near and far,

Thank you all so much for your good wishes and support. 
We are so pleased to let you know that the first part of the foundation pour for the Tubten Chökor Ling  Temple was perfectly laid: with perfect blessings and prayers, perfect preparation, perfect weather, perfect contractors and a perfect support team! 

To share the event here is a time lapsed video of the whole process from start to finish click here.

David project managed the concrete pour, the final stage of the foundation construction. We used three local contractors to supply the concrete, the pump truck and the laying and finishing of the concrete.  Using local firms not only supports the local economy but also enables our local community, at all levels, to feel part of this momentous development.  
Lama Oser asked us to make sure everyone had what they needed to do a good job. We made sure the contractors easily found their way to Gomde, with the site laid out to manage the flow of vehicles, maintained good communication with everyone on the day and, most importantly, tea, coffee and biscuits were available.
We all spontaneously clapped when the last bit of concrete was smoothed out; not a response the contractors had experienced before. The whole day was a graceful, and seemingly effortless, unfolding of the foundation and we made lots of friends along the way. Part II to follow in a few weeks. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers 
May the Tubten Chökor Ling Temple become the basis for limitless beings to be liberated. 

One of the most significant contributors for Gomde’s development remains the generosity of our sponsors. Our activities and projects form a rich mandala; all parts are interconnected and supporting one aspect of our activities, by definition, contributes to the whole.
