BUDDHIST RETREAT BWA DUE TO SAMPLING ERROR, NS
The Dorje Denma Ling Buddhist retreat in Tatamagouche, NS was put under boil water advisory on August 27. The advisory is still in effect today because of a sequence of errors.
"Basically, the advisory should be lifted today," says Executive Director, Lennart Krogoll. "It was actually the sample that was contaminated, not our water. So, our water is all good."
According to Krogoll, the Provincial Health Inspector said it would be lifted last week, but it had to be maintained until two consecutive tests came back clear and there was a another delay.
"For some reason, there was a mix-up at the lab and one of the samples was not automatically sent back to Health Inspection. Regardless of that, fortunately, our water was never contaminated. Our water is acutally excellent," he says.
The Dorje Denma Ling retreat teaches the Shambhala Vision which is rooted in the principle that every human being has a fundamental nature of basic goodness. This nature can be developed in daily life so that it radiates out to family, friends, community and society.
