It is time to complete the Stupa Mandala now.  The next phase toward completion includes skillful preparation of the inner courtyard around the existing stupas, which is inside the future mandala fence, and the laying of colorful granite tiles in a traditional mandala design.

As the days of the turbulent year of the fire bird have come to a close, we are reminded how short time is in this lifetime — a narrow window of opportunity to complete our practice, and more importantly to accomplish the tasks entrusted to us by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche: the completion of the three pillars of our holy retreat land, the Guru Rinpoche Statue, the Stupa Mandala, and the Gompa.

With the guidance of Lama Sonam Tsering Rinpoche and the help of our Sangha and wider community, our goal is to move ahead immediately with the onset of the Tibetan Earth Dog Year of 2018.  

We have selected the granite tiles and have the opportunity to purchase them at considerable savings. Your donations will help with the purchase, transport and installation of the tiles, and are essential to support the Wisdom Activity of our Lamas.

Rinpoche often reminded us, not only with his words but with his own generosity, that the best way to increase one’s wealth and prosperity is to give freely to the dharma.  The return is swift, bountiful, and reliable.

We hope that you will join us in this endeavor and in the prosperity and happiness of the New Year!
