General Plans for Your 2014-2015 Digital Dharma Drive Contributions

As you may know, we have spent the past two years renovating the Media Studio, the circa 1959 facility in which the monks produce all of the books, magazine, art, websites, videos and teachings. Aside from being the nexus of the monastery's world outreach activities, it is a key place for hosting visitors. It was time to bring the Media Studio into the 21st century, so for the last two years it has undergone a massive renovation by the monks and a task force of volunteers. We are even using our own lumber, milled from island trees, for the wooden elements. It has taken a lot of work and money. We have moved in and resumed our publications and online work while the construction finishing work is still going on. The end of this project is near, and much of the remaining work requires us to hire a skilled carpenter to accomplish it in a timely way. To cover this cost, we are again directing half of the funds raised by this year’s Digital Dharma Drive toward the Media Studio construction costs. The other half goes as usual to ongoing web improvements, digital assets, ebooks and other projects. We hope you are inspired by all of this.
