Construction starts at Achalabhumi Vihara, India

More stories are coming in from India - today Triratna News brings you a photo report on progress at the Achalabhumi Vihara - a new Triratna retreat centre in the hills above Amaravati, in Central India. They’ve been fundraising locally and on-line for the past couple of years, and construction work has recently started.

The new retreat centre is set in Chikaldara, a range of beautiful hills which according to Wikipedia,  “Englishmen found particularly attractive because the lush green hue of the place reminded them of England”. The green comes, of course, from the rain - which makes access difficult during the rainy season - though not impossible, as our cover photo shows!

The presentation is available on Flickriver , or check their fundraising page at
