"Jimmy," the older monk responsible for the butter lamps, unexpectedly left the monastery. Cleaning and lighting and maintaining hundreds of these small candles is no easy task. Some of the other monks stepped up to the plate, helping shine the metal and refill them with wax for new offerings. I watched this repeatedly: monks helping each other with chores and responsibilities. It seems when everyone chips in, even big tasks don't feel as daunting.
Thanks, Jason, for helping us bring reliable power to kitchen, classrooms, and butter lamp room.
