After lunch we took a trip to Lowe's to research costs for upcoming work. Part of being involved with the Stupas is creative use of materials. We've been wanting to prepare the inside of the gau of the Enlightenment Stupa so it will be more like that over in the Stupa Park. This will require sealing the interior chamber with something to prevent moisture from entering it (we've tried desiccant unsuccessfully). The Long Life Stupa has a coating inside that feels like a thick sheet of rubber. We couldn't find that...but we did find this! As the weather has remained cooler than we'd hoped, we're continuing to address odd jobs we hadn't gotten around to last season. We're gearing up! So keep checking in! Soon there will be many opportunities to jump in and work on Stupas if you wish! Otherwise, we'll keep them in good repair for you!
Remember, the Stupas and temple are here for people of every faith, even those with no faith. So come on out and see them for yourself!
