Build the Buddha Hall

Please join us!

Let’s make a continuous flow of merit

as we design, plan construction, and invite generosity

to build the Buddha Hall.

What is the Buddha Hall?

The Buddha Hall is the long-awaited temple space, the crown jewel of buildings at Sravasti Abbey.

No monastery is complete without its Buddha Hall. And while our beautiful log cabin Meditation Hall has served its purpose well for 16 years, it was always a temporary solution.

Now, with a resident community of 16 monastics and attendance at Abbey programs regularly surpassing 50 people, the Meditation Hall is just too small to contain all the Abbey’s Dharma activities.

The Buddha has been waiting for us, and now it’s clear: time to build the Buddha Hall.

Temple and Library

The Buddha Hall will be a two-story, 17,000-square-foot temple and library.

The Buddha Hall will support Sravasti Abbey’s daily meditation practices, regular sangha and chanting rituals, teachings, retreats, pujas, memorials, and special Dharma events.

The Buddha Hall will also contain an extensive library, classrooms, and media room.

When do we start?

Plans are just beginning. We’ll use this page to report updates on the progress. We also invite your support by helping to generate merit by reciting Buddha’s mantra. Details below.

By your effort, may the Buddha Hall become the spiritual home of all sentient beings
and a refuge of love, compassion, and wisdom
to create peace in a chaotic world.
