Recently the monastery received a wonderful boon. A housing development project just 15 minutes away has cut down several nice trees. Kumarnathaswami, Arumuganathaswami, Brahmanathaswami and Sadhaka Jayanatha have spent the last few days collecting the logs and transporting them to the monastery to eventually be milled and used for future projects. So far we've acquired dozens of camphor logs as well as several other large pieces. These few photos were taken at a funny moment when two giant (and very heavy) logs had to be lifted off the trailer using both the tractor and the skid-steer.
