Summer: The Diamond Mountain Fitness Program

At Diamond Mountain we aim to be well-balanced Buddhists.  And nothing balances three terms of homeworks and quizzes like four months of hard labor under the Arizona sun.  This summer there is plenty of work to go around and thus plenty of virtuous-merit-goodness mind-seeds to be planted.  For those unfamiliar with Buddhist ideals we believe that happiness, and in fact all good things, comes from serving others.  So if you ever wanted a nice cottage in which to do a three-year retreat, this is your chance to get one (by building one for someone else).

For the month of June most of the work will be on Geshe Michael and Lama Christie's new retreat home.  Work will be five days per week (off Tuesday and Wednesday).  That work will continue in July during which time work may also begin on the 'test cabin' for the three-year retreat houses.  Both projects will continue through August and perhaps September as well.  For more info on details of the work schedule email Bert (bertscott2000 at yahoo.com).

See you on the mountain.
