This autumn we built a new room for the Generator. Many friends were involved in the process and now we have a new super sound isolated room. The old wooden toilet was destroyed and now there is a lot of space behind the container.
After more than 3 years, the Stupa info board is ready. The visitors of the place can find there all relevant information about the Stupa, about Lama Ole Nydahl activity and about the centers on the Diamond Way. The board itself is made in France from volcano stone and has exquisite ceramic print.
