The glorious vision of a golden roof to complete the temple by our founder and spiritual guide, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, has come a long way since many of us wondered how we might ever achieve such a major undertaking.
This offering to all the Buddhas and bodhisattvas and precious teachings of the Dharma, is extraordinarily beautiful, and in some lights breathtaking.
At this stage the main visible parts have been completed and further work to finish the north facing lotus petals is funded and is expected to be completed over the summer period. However, in reality two thirds of the project – the main roof – is yet to begin.
Therefore, our fundraising program, the Peaceful Land of Joy Holy Temple Support and Development Project, established by Geshe-la before his passing, continues.
