Well, here we go! Our first test of the new system we came up with for removing the Guru from the gau chamber (we placed him on the lower steps while we worked, so he would not be separated from the Stupa). We built this chair last Tuesday, and here we have it in action. By having it run along the ladder we reduce the impact of gravity, and using the pulley we are able to distribute the weight so more people can help. It isn't easy, but it worked! Not many photos of the process though, as all hands were needed!
