📷 The Buddha Hall Site Takes Shape

In less than a month, the look of the building site has changed completely — from forest to dirt, in preparation for the concrete footings.

$500k Challenge Begins

Ground Breaking Challenge: Three Abbey friends challenge us to match their generous $500k donation by Lama Tsongkhapa Day, December 18.

Statues Arrive

Statues have arrived for the main altar of the Buddha Hall, traveling all the way from the French studio of Peter and Denise Griffin.

Site Prep Begins

Young Construction and other subcontractors visited the Abbey the week of July 18th to begin planning and preparing for construction.
