Tonight we revised the budget – our plans were amended to incorporate Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s input (see previous posts). Today our fundraising target is $44,400. It’s now not a single stupa project – but a 4-stupas project! The main Enlightenment stupa will be surrounded by three smaller kadampa stupas built on their own base and thrones all filled with holy objects/mantras. We’re drawing up a sketch so I can show you what it would look like. I’ll post it on here in a few days.
$44,400 seems both like a daunting chunk of currency (at this particular time of financial hardship) and not much at all in the greater scheme of things. This is after all, the Holy Lama’s cremation stupa. There are tens of thousands of us who have directly benefited from Lama’s kindness – so we can do this. Help us make it. Participate. Talk to us. Contribute. Talk to your Lama Yeshe Friends. And come to the consecration!
Donate now to help us bring this project to completion. Our current target is $44,400.
May all who contribute in any way to this project reap the fruit of pure guru devotion, the root of the path to enlightenment, and may all their temporal and ultimate wishes be fulfilled.
