After finally completing all the relevant registrations of the new land, we received a small geodesic dome from Netherlands that we plan to use as a sala and accommodation at the new hermitage after this winter. Currently we are testing it at Samanadipa monastery and experimenting with different types of insulation, building a portable base, and few more things.

We have also set up a Mongolian yurt, as an additional kuti that will be already available this winter. Anumodana to all the generous supporters for their continued support!

Hopefully, by spring we will be able to get two more of these yurts, which would allow us to quickly move into the quiet forests at the new land… Forests that we will be sharing with black bears, wild goats and Eurasian wolves:
