Make the Merigar East Dormitory manifest!
For many years, retreats in Merigar East took place in a big tent. The only building was the wooden barn. Now the Gar has a new Gompa, and the barn has been with love and dedicated labor converted to a simple house where the gekö can live all year. But still, during the retreat, things get a bit tight: the lunch is still served in a tent; the barn kitchen becomes a makeshift office for the gakyil; people sleep in the village or in tents. To help with all these issues, we have started the process to construct a new multi-purpose building.
Although the project is advertised as a dormitory, the new building will be much more than that. In fact it will serve us practitioners during all Five Moments: there will be a Dormitory for sleeping; there will be Kitchen and Restaurant for eating; there will be Office for working; the dining area you can use also for sitting. For walking? Well, you can go up and down the stairs!
To make all this reality, we turn to you. Together we can create the secondary causes for the famous Merigar East mandala of sky and earth manifest the building we need.
The target amount for this project is 100,000 Euro.
