During the past few weeks, the Bodhi Shrawan Dharma Sangha volunteers have been working very diligently to create a beautiful space for the upcoming Maitri Puja. We hope you enjoy the below photos and may they help you to share in these beautiful Maitri blessings!
The gigantic scaffolding structure being built entirely by Maitri volunteers. This will be where the 70 foot (21 meter) Thanka will be presented during the Maitri Puja.
Volunteers are working at great heights without special equipment, just their helmets!
The Sangha doing a great job fixing ropes for the Thanka scaffolding.
Women bringing bricks to help build the structure where the offerings will be placed during the Puja. A team effort!
Old and young are working at the Puja site.
International devotees working hard to create the lavatory area.
The temporary kitchen for now – soon to be more established!
First aid is always here and happy to help!
And of course, there is always time for prayers and paying homage to the blessed Guru!
See you at the Maitri Puja 2017
