Build Tibetan Earth House

Be a True Builder Once in Your Life
Contribute your energy, time and love to the building of Thailand’s first Tibetan earth house
Give warm clothes and blankets to the needy
21-23 November 2009
Khadiravana Center, Hua-Hin

The Thousand Stars Foundation (Pandara) invites volunteers to help build Thailand’s first Tibetan house to be used as a retreat/reception house for monks, nuns and lay practitioners and as a learning place for eastern wisdom.

The Foundation will provide you with tent accommodation, food and drinks for all meals. During this earth building period we will visit Thai and Karen villagers in the Pala-U waterfall area and give them warm clothes and blankets (donations are collected at the foundation house, Ladprao Soi 11 from now on till 18 November).

We will arrange a van for those who need transportation. There will be an expense of 800 bath per round trip, as we need to hire the van for 3 days.

Khadiravana is a Tibetan retreat center and a place for learning Tibetan/Himalayan art and wisdom. It is located at Makhasisong village, Nongplub district, Hua-Hin, Prachuab Khirikhan province, about 240 kilometers south of Bangkok.

Please contact us by 15 November at 1000tara@gmail.com; Mobiles: 086 977 5867, 081 303 6116. There are no registration fees.
