It began with a beautifully made and consecrated statue of Guru Rinpoche, which has been in an area cleaned of weeds but on uneven and poorly draining dirt grounds.

A stunningly beautiful path and sitting wall to match the beauty of the statue of Guru Rinpoche with a complex drainage system running underneath that will be directed to the – soon to be installed – rain garden. This is an integrated site with incredibly thoughtful planning brought to fruition by Paul Turska and his team of stonemasons.
