While I am wishing you all a very happy "New Year" for the coming 2021, thanks for those who have been supporting to above Buddhist Vihara in different ways such as monthly contributions/quarterly/yearly by standing orders/sponsoring 28 Buddha statues as well as altars and halos. Also a lot of devotees sponsored one or few spaces of "Pagoda" project while others sponsored various items for building works including lighting and fixing blinds for windows. By this time almost ground floor, first floor and third floor works have been completed and our monks are living there as well as conducting day to day religious and related other activities for public despite of Corona 19. Thank you all for your kind support for Birmingham Buddhist Maha Vihara as well as its branches in Leicester Dharmashoka Buddhist Vihara and Stoke on Trent Buddhists Vihara during the corona virus in different ways.

Meanwhile Mr.Ajith Prasanna Palliyaguruge and his wife Mrs.Thanuja Palliyaguruge (Leicester Minoli works ltd.) and their team fixed ground floor tiles and charity got to pay only for materials. Also, Mr.Palliyaguruge and Mr.Hirantha Kaluarachchi, volunteered to white was ground floor and first floor. Mr.Hirantha paid for materials without any charges for charity. Meanwhile Panjabi Buddhist community based in Birmingham paid over £4000.00 for carpeting and laminating monks' quarters which are based in second floor. Very recently following members paid for materials for ground floor tiling. Thanks to them, ground floor is looking very good and we are expecting to fix same way first floor where we have to pay only materials and Mr.Ajitha Prasanna and team of "Minoli works" will give labour free of charge.

Please note that the "Pagoda Project" got late due to corona virus but we will start it in New y P!>r ') {)') 1 .
