How Can You Help? You can support completion of the Temple

Substantial progress has been made in creating the marvellous environment of the Thousand Buddha Temple. At this moment, additional funds of 3.35 million USD are needed to finish the first phase of the project. This includes reimbursing costs already incurred by the contractor as well as roofing, internal painting and furnishing. Additionally, 600 of the 18 inch statues and several other larger statues need to be gilded, consecrated, and mounted.

We invite you to support this most auspicious project, planting the seeds of liberation for countless people for generations to come. It is most beneficial and meritorious to support such an excellent project, so we invite everyone to help in accordance with their capabilities.

Everyone can help in some way!
