Water Project


JUNE, 2004

For the past 30 years, the Monastery was without piped water and relied heavily on a public pump which gave water only 2 to 3 hours a day. During the very dry months in summer, the Monastery and the villagers from the surrounding village can go without water for 3 to 6 months which brought extreme hardship to them. In 2003, a pipe was drilled 300 feet down in the Monastery grounds, but it gave very little water. In 2004, some generous donors donated some money and strenuous attempts were made to locate the water source and finally it was found and piping works started in June, 2004.
