Together we’ll build the Buddha Hall

A spiritual home for all beings.

The Buddha Hall will be a new temple and library, the center of Sravasti Abbey’s spiritual activities.
In the Buddha Hall, people of all spiritual traditions can learn to replace anxiety, anger, and fear with love, compassion, and wisdom.
It’s where we learn to create peace in our chaotic world.
