More Random Stuff :)

The days are getting colder and colder. There was some heavy snowfall in cities north of Toronto, but we only some light flurries for about 5 minutes couple of days back.

Last Sunday I went with the others to the Buddhist temple in the neighboring city of Mississauga. One of the priest at the temple had taught one of my friends at daham pasla back in SL, so he's visited the place a few times. There is an average SL community in the area and they have gotten together to organize a sil and dane  to commemorate the Poya. Enjoyed some yummy Sri Lankan food.

The first photo is of the temple. Even though the structure is small there is a big garden at the back. They conduct meditation classes there during the summer.  They are also building a new temple and will be moving to it next year. The community is doing various fundraising activities these days to help with the building. There is also a daham pasala for kids held at a separate place.

Below are some random pics

The CN Tower at night has an awesome display of lights. Photos doesn't do justice. Unfortunately I didn't record it so this is a video I got from YouTube.

Cheers and have a great weekend :)
