Temple Life presented in Powerpoint

Novices and the Abbott of Wat Pasaviet – a Buddhist Temple which GVI are privileged to work at with volunteers teaching English – were given a real treat recently with a powerpoint presentation depicting their temple lives. Recently departed volunteer Edward stayed at the temple overnight in his free time. As a keen photographer he took dozens of photos which he then put into a presentation with music for the novices and monks. GVI volunteers and staff, sans Edward himself sadly, watched the show together. Nervous giggles, raucous laughter and sighs at the simplicity and beauty of the pictures could be heard across the room, and indeed temple grounds.

It was a special thing to share and on behalf of GVI we thank Edward for this incredible gift to the Wat Pasaviet students. See it for yourself at
