The design phase is complete. The permit is in hand. The bidding process is complete and contractors are lined up to start to break ground on June 25th, 2018. Be a part of making it happen!
This first phase includes both foundation and steel structure for the prayer wheel house. The budget for that phase is $100,000. Lama Zopa Rinpoche has pledged $40,000. And thanks to the generosity of benefactors who donated last year, we have the remaining funds to proceed.
The remainder of the construction is estimated at $340,000. This includes traditional wood-carved artwork; copper roof; the erection of the wheel filled with 250 billion mani mantras. A donor has pledged $200,000 and will disburse funds once we have successfully raised the $140,000 gap. All your contributions will go towards that goal.
Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s bold vision is to exceed 250 billion twenty-fold to 5 trillion mantras. We are committed to raising these funds gradually.
