Dana appeal for Cyprus Hermitage

Post by Ben » Sun Mar 23, 2014 6:07 am

Dear friends,

I encourage those who have the means to participate in the meritorious act of providing Dana for Cyprus Hermitage in Sri Lanka for urgent maintenance works.

Bhikkhu Samahita, who is a regular contributor here at Dhamma Wheel and other Buddhist discussion boards, resides at Cyprus Hermitage.

Please see the note below for details.
Dear Dhamma Friends:

New Roofing and Floor Repair is Requested:


The cypress hermitage here have long needed some new roofing. Furthermore is the verandah
floor caving in due to almost complete undermining by rat tunnels. Hopefully can these required
improvements be finished before the torrential heavy rain sets in during the June-July monsoon.
The fact that all materials have to be truck-transported from Kandy (=~60km) and then further
hand-carried 2 km uphill this knuckles mountain to 4000 feets elevation usually increases the
costs significantly, as there is no road-access to here. Your kind contribution is thus requested here:

The roof & verandah improvements will enable a safe path for pre-dawn & night walking-meditation
under cover from the often quite heavy rain, and under lights so not to step on the quite common
poisonous polanga-pit-viper snakes, who often visits this hermitage in their night-hunt for frogs.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
