DHAMMA IN BAHIA: Collective Efforts and Construction Works

Dear Fellow Meditators,

We are posting this video (link below), which was shot yesterday, as a way to share the progress of the construction works of our Dhamma Hall. We are now close to finishing its roof. The video also shows the progress of collective efforts in woodwork.

Video recorded on December 08, 2019, with the purpose of sharing the actions that have been carried out at Vipassana Bahia’s temporary headquarters in Itacaré.

We wish to express our gratitude to the fellow meditators who have volunteered for Dhamma service in this Project. More collective efforts have been planned for next weekend and everyone is invited. On December 14th and 15th we will be working on the adobe preparation for the clay walls of our Dhamma Hall. Everyone is invited!

May all beings be happy!
