Help Bring Maitreya to VI
Our plan is to not only commission, build and bring the statue to VI but to also create a structure for it to be housed in, which would include an altar for offerings. This project will not be cheap and we need your support to make this vision a reality.
Every dollar donated will be matched by a generous benefactor,
so for every dollar you give, you will be contributing double!
Building large statues of Maitreya Buddha has traditionally been considered auspicious in order to reduce the period of “spiritual darkness” when Shakyamuni Buddha’s teachings have disappeared and before the appearance of Maitreya Buddha whose teachings then will again provide the means for spiritual development to people of the time.
