Gratitude for the compassionate ways
of the sisters at Deer Park Meditation Center/Monastery.
They teach the ways of understanding and love,
living in harmony with nature.
They are there as friends to all
who present themselves;
For the past 14 years they’ve lived
in small bath houses (next to the unused swimming pool),
cold in the winter
hot in the summer.
Still they walk peacefully
and smile to all.
Finally a new, eco-earth friendly
straw-bale nunnery is being built for them
thanks to the generous donations of time and money.
This short video above offers a brief impression.
