Improvements to Padmaloka
Here are some images from our most recent project-replacing the windows behind the Buddha in the Shrine Room.
The double glazing on the old windows had failed, meaning that heat from inside the shrine room was escaping. It also meant that the glass didn't look very attractive and sound from the lane outside could more easily enter.
The new windows that our builder Andy and his team installed are thicker and have a better thermal rating than the old ones. This means that we will use less energy to heat the shrine room. They also have acoustic properties so that noise from the outside doesn't enter into the shrine room so easily.
Finally, they are made of 'satin glass'. This means that they are translucent, creating a more contained, focused aesthetic in the shrine room.
Thank you to everybody who gives or has given money to Padmaloka. Without your help the amount of improvement projects we could do would be much smaller.
