The Building Committee discussed a few design details and finishes of the ground floor.  It was a fruitful and joyful meeting of hearts and minds as usual.  Sadhu anumodana to the hard work put in by the Building Committee.  With the support of all quarters, including from the local Buddhist community in Kedah, we look forward to the successful completion of the Centre later this year.
