Hello friends,

This coming Saturday, March 19th, at 3 pm, Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo is going to be offering a live webcast from the Adawi Temple at the Sunray Peace Village. You can watch by going to the Sunray website, The broadcast will be shown in the top center of the home page. We would encourage people to show their appreciation and support these webcasts by making a donation.

Venerable Dhyani is going to speak for up to 90 minutes, and will lead people through the Medicine Wheel Mandala practice. It is a very volatile time, and this practice helps stabilize the mind and one's surroundings.

Please join us! And please invite others to watch. This will be our first public webcast.

We need your help -- to bring webcasting of Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo to the world

Hello friend,

We need your help. As soon as we are able to -- by January 2011 -- we would like to begin webcasting Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo teaching live every month from the Adawi Temple at the Sunray Peace Village. After each live broadcast, we hope to make a taped version available, and even an audio version that could be downloaded into your MP3 player.

We intend to broadcast these teachings without charge, so that the widest possible audience can view them -- indeed, anyone in the world who has internet access should be able to watch -- and to manifest the greatest potential benefits.

To sustain these broadcasts, and to sustain Venerable's teachings in the world, we are going to ask anyone who is touched by her teachings and is able to donate to make a regular sustaining pledge. To make this work, monthly or quarterly pledges will be most beneficial, at whatever level one can afford to give.

Sustaining funds are needed to not only cover the costs of running the broadcasts -- which might cost a couple hundred dollars each month for broadband, videography, broadcasting, and website charges -- but to support Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo so that she can teach.


That's the preview.

To bring us to the point where we can launch this project to the world, we need some seed money. The seed money will enable us to upgrade the website so it can host the webcasts after they have been broadcast live, set up a smooth system for people to make sustaining pledges, and cover broadcasting expenses for several months until our viewership and support levels are able to sustain us into the future.

We would like to raise $3,000 or more, of which we have already raised more than $2,000. If you would like to make a financial contribution to launch the webcasting of Venerable Dhyani, please make a tax deductible gift here. Just write "webcasting" on the purpose line.

We would also love volunteers who would like to work on this project going forward. If you would like to help, please e-mail Brian at and he will find a way to plug you in.

Thank you. We hope you are as excited as we are about this opportunity to bring Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo's teachings to more and more people. Please make a gift to help bring this about.

Ani Tsultrim's Memorial Ceremony, March 14, 3pm, at Vajra Dakini Nunnery

Dear Friends,

We gather Sunday March 14th at 3pm at Vajra Dakini to remember our beloved Ani Tsultrim. We will begin with prayers - a traditional 49th day ceremony, tell stories and conclude with a feast. Please bring vegetarian food to share.

When a family member dies it is considered most meritorious on the 49th day and beneficial to the loved one's fortunate rebirth, to make offerings to monastics, sponsor statues, paintings, lasting things that will generate merit for many beings. In this spirit, Vajra Dakini is starting the Ani Tsultrim Legacy Fund to fund and name a nun's room after Ani Tsultrim! Contributions can be made online or sent to PO Box 382 Bristol, VT 05443.
