Sravasti Nuns Help Plant at OGM
Four monastics from Sravasti Abbey drove over to OGM from Newport to help out with the planting, share the meal, and go for a hike. Venerables Semkye, Chonyi, Samten, and Damcho worked with the monks and lay people to put in 180 trees in about an hour. The local newspaper, the Ferry County View, sent out a reporter to record the occasion.
The nuns gifted OGM with 4 beautiful trees; three Japanese Maples and a Grand Fir. The Sravasti Abbey monastics are part of the Tibetan lineage. Founded in 2003 by Bhikshuni Thubten Chodron, the Abbey is a place for women and men to ordain and train in the Dharma.
