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.
Raise the Roof!
To fund this next phase of construction, Friends of Sravasti Abbey are launching “Raise the Roof on the Buddha Hall,” inviting you to help sponsor various aspects of the new temple.
Traditional Tibetan-style deer and Dharma wheel roof ornaments are being created now.
As an auspicious sign pointing to Buddha Hall completion, let’s raise $100,000 —to finish the custom work in Nepal, ship them to the US, paint them, and store them until the crane comes to install them on the roof of the finished Buddha Hall. Learn more >
“Raise the Roof” invites $1 million by Lama Tsongkhapa Day, December 07, 2023.
