The project to buy and install a great zen bell for the temple Yujo Nyusanji started during the recent summer camp. The first part of the project has already been achieved: the bell was born out of an old cistern at a metal workshop in Monterrey, Mexico. Soon it will fly over the Atlantic Ocean and arrive in Marseille, where we will pick it up.
Installing the bell requires the construction of a wooden bell house, to be built on a solid base, which is already nearing completion. Wood for the bell house will arrive at the temple at the beginning of December. Shortly after this we will organize a big samu to construct the bell house and install the great bell.
Everybody is hoping that the great bell will chime during the winter camp at the end of this month!
