Building a New Main House of Samaṇadīpa

Samanadipa Hermitage - Supporting its Future 「沙門森林精舍」- 護持其未來

2022年3月17日 Join in developing the Hermitage: 加入發展 沙門森林精舍 的行列

Samanadipa Forest Buddhist Hermitage is unveiling a plan to build a new Main House next to the old cottage built in 1933. The land with the house was purchased in 2016. It was in the stewardship of Društvo theravadskih budistov Bhavana (Bhavana Theravada Buddhist Society) till this year when it was transferred to Gozdni budistični samostan Samanadipa (Samanadipa Forest Buddhist Hermitage).

(斯洛維尼亞) 「沙門森林精舍」公佈了一項計劃,在1933年建造的老別墅旁邊建造一個新的主建築。此一有房子的土地是在2016年購買的。它一直由「上座部禪修協會」(Bhavana Theravada Buddhist Society)管理,直到今年才移交給「沙門森林精舍」(Samanadipa Forest Buddhist Hermitage)。

The old building was built in 1933 by Marcelin Korelc, great-grandfather of Ajahn Hiriko, to serve as a family home. It is a tiny house with a small room (20m2), kitchen (12m2), and storage (12m2). It has been built with very modest material even for those times: wood and mud. While the building provided for the general activity of the Sangha, it was designed and built for an altogether different purpose, as a small family home and not as a monastery.

這座老建築是由阿姜希利蔻(有慚比丘Ajahn Hiriko) 的曾祖父馬塞林﹡嘎利爾克(Marcelin Korelc) 在1933年建造的,作為家庭住宅。這是一個很小的房子,有一個小房間(20平方公尺),廚房(12平方公尺),和儲藏室(12平方公尺)。即使在那個時代,它也是用非常簡陋的材料建造的:木材和泥土。雖然該建築為僧團的一般活動提供了條件,但它的設計和建造目的完全不同,是作為一個小型家庭住宅,而不是作為一個寺院。

The cottage was purchased in 2016 to provide a secluded contemplative place for a few monks, where lay Buddhists and interested people could learn and practice the Buddha's teachings. The monks have been alms mendicants dependent on laypeople for food, clothing, accommodation, and medicine. This makes for a very open form of religious life. People come to the Hermitage to receive the guide in mental development and provide the day's main meal. The Hermitage is always open to visitors. There is no charge for any of the teachings, literature, or facilities that the community offers.


Why does the Hermitage need to upgrade and improve the site?


The old cottage, as mentioned above, was initially built for a small family and not for a community of monks and lay guests and visitors. 20m2 room converted into the Shrine Rooms is not sufficient for gatherings of six monks (and the number continues to grow). It is also impossible to have wider groups (such as meditations, teachings, Dana offerings). In 2020 we built an “Open Sala” (Kozolec), which serves us very well but only in warm parts of a year. Moreover, the house is old and poorly constructed. It requires constant repair of cracks and mold cleaning that recently came to the place due to moisture from the kitchen, drying clothes, and more people using those spaces. Also, under the Government requirement, we need bigger living space to register more residents to this address: currently, all slots are taken, and due to the small cottage, we are not allowed to take on more residents. The Trust decided to continue its activities at this location. It felt that a long-term plan to regenerate the site would be the most appropriate way forward.

如上所述,舊的平房最初是為一個小家庭建造的,而不是為僧團和在家眾和訪客組成的社區。20平方公尺的房間改建為大殿,對於六位僧人的聚會來說是不夠的(而且人數還在不斷增加)。也不可能提供更廣泛的團體活動(如禪修、開示、供養布施)場所。在2020年,我們建造了一個 "開放小殿",它為我們提供了很好的服務,但只在一年中溫暖的部分。此外,這個房子很舊,結構也很差。它需要不斷地修復裂縫和清理黴菌,最近由於廚房的濕氣、晾曬的衣服和更多的人使用這些空間而出現了這種情況。另外,根據政府的要求,我們需要更大的居住空間來為這個地址登記更多的住眾:目前,所有的名額都被佔用了,由於小別墅的原因,我們不允許接收更多的住眾。護持基金會決定繼續在這個地方開展活動。它認為,一個長期的計劃來更新這個地方將是最合適的方式。

The Masterplan Approach

At this stage, we are still consulting with the architect. The idea is to build a two-floor building with natural materials which would contain only wood, straw, and clay. On the first floor, we hope to have a larger kitchen with storage, a bathroom and more toilets, a Common Room for monks, and a room for a sick or aging monk together with its bathroom. On the second floor would be a bigger Meditation Hall (35-40m2). Such a building would be highly sustainable and energy-efficient, a cheaper construction option, and fit our forest monks' lifestyle.



A detailed plan will follow in a few months when the architect prepares a more detailed masterplan. It is estimated that the total cost will be around 150,000 EUR, however we are aiming to have even lower cost.

幾個月後,當建築師準備好更詳細的總體規劃時,將有一個詳細的計劃。據估計,總成本將在 十五萬歐元(150,000 EUR) 左右,但我們的目標是更低的成本。
