1,000 Buddhas Offering
Lama Zopa Rinpoche is offering one thousand statues of Shakyamuni Buddha to His Holiness the Dalai Lama on behalf of the entire FPMT organization. These beautiful nine inch, gold gilded, and consecrated statues are being made right now in India and are dedicated to His Holiness’ long life. The statues will be offered directly to His Holiness the Dalai Lama by Lama Zopa Rinpoche either in late 2019 or 2020 in Dharamsala, India.
Everyone has an incredible opportunity to be part of this offering of one thousand statues of Buddha to His Holiness. Rinpoche has said that the most important thing FPMT can do is to please His Holiness. In this way the whole organization will continue to have a strong connection to and receive guidance from His Holiness, who in actuality is Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion.
Each statue costs US$300 (NZD$469) to create, paint, fill with mantras, and consecrate. You can also offer any amount to this project. With any contribution, you are participating in the entire offering of one thousand precious statues to His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
Join us in offering!
Dorje Chang Institute invites anyone who wishes to offer ANY amount towards this unique offering for His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
