Bring Buddha Shakyamuni to our new Temple

Update posted by Lojong Meditation On Nov 04, 2019

Hello lovely Sangha! As you may know we've moved to the new space, what you may not know is that I have been battling poor health and was recently diagnosed with cervical cancer. Karma is a great teacher, I'm blessed that the cancer was found and my prognosis is good, but the illness has meant that everything we had planned for Lojong was put on hold for a while.

I'm now writing to let you know our plans. Trying to raise $4000 to have a golden Buddha Shakyamuni statue delivered from Nepal was always going to be a little ambitious. We've decided that rather than wait to raise such a large amount, we're going to redirect funds already raised to complete the temple as soon as possible. To do this, we've commissioned an extra large, mural sized Thangka (Tibetan wall hanging) of Buddha Shakyamuni for the head of the Temple. This is currently in progress with a dear friend Nyishi Tenzin from Drepung Gomang Monastery in South India. While the medium has changed, the message and intent hasn't. We are committed to opening our doors and sharing this space with the community as soon as possible. We will have the new Thangka installed for our relaunch early 2020. We'd love for you to be involved, please read on for more details.
