Together we’ll build the Buddha Hall

A spiritual home for all beings.

The Buddha Hall is a new two-story, 17,000 square foot temple and library, the center of spiritual activity at Sravasti Abbey.

Inspired by a vision to create peace in this chaotic world, hundreds of people have joined in with their offering to bring the Buddha Hall to life.

In the Buddha Hall, we’ll learn together how to replace anxiety, anger, and fear with love, compassion, and wisdom. Will you join us?

Construction began in 2022. With your help, we aim to finish in spring 2024.
