Together we’ll build the Buddha Hall

$500k Ground Breaking Challenge Begins

Challenge has increased! 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.

Ground Breaking Ceremony

The Ground-breaking Ceremony officially launched the next phase of our project to build the Buddha Hall.

Contract Signing Ceremony

We’re rejoicing! Ven. Chodron has signed the contract to begin building the Buddha Hall! Here are photos from the signing ceremony.

Construction Permit Received

We are thrilled to tell you the Abbey has received the construction permit to build the Buddha Hall!

“We’re doing this for the people, we’re doing this for the country. We’re establishing a place where the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha can be seen and taught and the teachings shared with society.”
– Venerable Thubten Chodron
