The huge basement of the Kilung Shedra and Community Center foundation is divided up into two spaces. The space on the bottom is filled with dirt and is engineered to keep the building stable in case of an earthquake. It also acts to keep the temperature more stable for the whole building. The contractors are working night and day, and not taking weekends off, to take advantage of the weather while it lasts.

On the hillside above the construction site, prayer flags were erected in offering for the benefit of everyone, and all Dza Kilung Rinpoche’s students worldwide.
With whole-hearted gratitude and special thanks to all those who have donated and made this progress possible!
Construction will continue at full speed until winter weather brings work to a halt.
