Prayer Wheel House Update
The Prayer Wheel House is now completed. An unexpected response to it has been received from The Royal Museum of Scotland in Chambers Street, Edinburgh which has commissioned a wall of fixed conscrated prayer wheels to be built by Samye Ling as a central feature of their 'Exhibition of Buddhism' which will be the centre piece of the Museum when it is reopened in 2010!
In and around Eskdalemuir...
The very positive outcome of the logging disaster in 2006, has been a beautiful foot path built from Garwald water foot past Samye Ling and the Purelands retreat center all the way down to Eskdalemuir village. Together with a massive bypass project that means lorries can now avoid driving through Eskdalemuir altogether. This has made the valley a much safer and more pleasant place for the community, walkers and cyclists.
