We are very happy to inform you about the following stages of setting and filling the big Buddha statue. On the 24th of August we finished putting ornaments surrounding the statue on the wall in lhakhang (see Summer 2015 in Grabnik). The part of the wall being a background of the statue has been painted in traditional colours. Lama Ang Pasang took care that the shades were proper. Meantime, Lama Rinczen, Lama Geleg and Lama Choying wrote mantras on sog-shings. Next week, the pedestal was covered with a granite slab. The lower part of it will be a place for traditional offerings while the upper one is Buddha's throne. In the future, the throne will have golden ornaments such as snow lions. We have to order them from Nepal.
