— In September, 2015, a devastating fire (called the "Valley Fire") swept through a large area of Lake County, California, with extraordinary speed, burning virtually everything in its path, before 4,000+ firefighters finally succeeded in containing it. Miraculously, the core temples, archives, and residences of The Mountain Of Attention Sanctuary were untouched. However, several outlying buildings and holy sites were destroyed; and the homes of many devotees living near the Sanctuary were also lost.
— On September 26, 2015, Adidam Berlin opened their
new Adidam Center and Bookstore.
