Blocks: Tea & Service Rooms

108,00 € inc. tax

We are now building tea-rooms for hospitality for retreatants and visitors, and rooms to house the services that will power the temple.

In sponsoring a square metre of blocks you will provide comfort and shelter for retreatants and protect the equipment that will be the elemental heart the temple, bringing water, heat and air to the building.

The services-room will be the elemental heart of the temple, bringing water, heat and air to the building. A Tibetan Buddhist practitioner sometimes considers that their own heartbeat is a drum beating to invoke the Dharma protectors. By donating to the services-room, we too can consider we are sponsoring the drum of the Dharma that will resound in all directions, for hundreds of years to come, granting protection to sentient beings who hear it. 

And for those who will enjoy refreshments from the tea room:
Tea is an act complete in its simplicity. 
When I drink tea, there is only me and the tea. 
The rest of the world dissolves. 
There are no worries about the future. 
No dwelling on past mistakes. 
This is the act of life, in one pure moment, and in this act the truth of the world suddenly becomes revealed: all the complexity, pain, drama of life is a pretense, invented in our minds for no good purpose. 
There is only the tea, and me, converging.” 
Thich Nhat Hanh
