The Glentui Gompa Project
“…Australia and New Zealand are uniting their activity in towns and retreat lands across their vast spaces.” Lama Ole Nydahl, 2014.
Lama Ole and Hannah had a vision for the future of Glentui and through the Gompa Project, we are working towards this.
The 140 square metre gompa is currently under construction. The outside structure was completed in 2015 to “lock up shell” state (stage 1) before our National course with Tomek Lehnert in Februrary 2016.
Now we are working on stage 2 to complete the inside of the gompa and construct a toilet and shower block. The Sangha is now finishing the inside of the gompa. The the wall framing, insulation, power cables for lights, first top coat of paint has been completed. Next are two more coats of paint and then the architectural ply ceiling.
The interior will be ready for the gompa inauguration with Lama Ole Nydahl in February 2017.
