For a glimpse of our typical rainy season afternoon downpours, please view today’s video clip, taken a few days ago. While it might look a tropical storm that could last for hours, our rains ususally come fast and furiously, but typically only last fifteen, twenty or thirty minutes.
Moisture in any form and for however long is much needed and appreciated at this time.The rains of late are certainly warding off the chance of forest fires, and the monsoon season normally extends throughout July and August.
Forest Service Road 151 leading the Monastery is currently dry, so day visitors and retreatants are able to get in and out.
With this comes our greetings and prayers.
Abbot Christian and the monks
