The Big Meet

Aryavalokiteswara Sarbasangh, the Janbahaa Dyo priests’ organization, convened a meeting on July 26, 2008 at the Digi Chhen to discuss three issues: (a) Shanti Hom ceremony; (b) renovation of the Janabahaa Dyo temple; and (c) reconstruction of the chariot.

At the meeting attended by several elderly priests (and younger ones too), representatives of several other organizations and groups that are directly or indirectly linked to Janabahaa or Janabahaa Dyo and many local people, it was decided that a grand Shanti Hom ceremony will be conducted to spread the message of solidarity among the Buddhist community, especially after the chariot of Janabahaa Dyo toppled over earlier this year at Ratna Park.

A seven-member temple renovation ad-hoc committee was also created to oversee the construction works of the main Janabahaa Dyo temple that is in imminent danger of further degradation, especially the wooden beams on the roof directly above Janabahaa Dyo. Discussion on chariot reconstruction was deferred to a future meeting. Click on the pictures for bigger size . Photos by Alok Tuladhar.
