Your donation is doubled this Christmas!

This Christmas, one of our major temple donors has generously offered to match all donations, up to a total of €100,000.

No: It’s not Santa Claus! But it’s exactly the gift we need to begin the next phase of building! 

If you donate €50, our donor will do the same, making your donation worth €100… €100 becomes €200… €1,000 becomes €2,000… And they’ll keep on giving until they match €50,000 of donations with €50,000 of their own.

Donate online to double your donation and make a dedication.

This match-funding offer comes exactly when we need it. The current construction phase is fully funded to April 2019 but we need €100,000 to continue building.

As a place of spiritual teaching and practice, extending an open-hearted welcome to all, the temple will benefit many future generations, bringing peace, healing and wisdom on the deepest level. Please give as generously as you can.

Through your generosity now, you can ensure building of this historic beacon of wisdom and compassion for our times continues without pause.

“Now you are getting a very beautiful temple.
In Buddhist tradition, it is said that building a temple is very, very positive.
It is one of the best ways of accumulating merit and of purification”.
Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Visit the temple sponsors’ shop to fund parts of the temple connected to the elements. Plant a tree (Earth) for €21, sponsor a downpipe for €108 (Water), offer €750 for a fan (Air), light the Sambhogakaya Temple (Fire) for €10,000 or gift €16,000 to wire the temple for sound (Space).

Our sponsors’ shop has a wide range of inspiring items at different offering levels, each linked to a teaching on the related element. Click here to browse.

Thanks to the vision and generosity of all of our donors, extraordinary progress has been made on the temple in the past two and a half years. Electricity, plumbing and ventilation networks have already been installed. By April the internal plastering will be ready for sacred decoration and the ancillary buildings will be weather-proof, ready for installation of services.

“This will be one of the most spectacular temples;
in terms of location and the love and blessings that one feels here,
this is going to be a jewel in this country.”
Her Eminence Jetsun Khandro Rinpoche

If we can raise €100,000, we plan to continue by installing an acoustic ceiling, followed by internal doors and electric fittings. You can help by directly sponsoring building materials and features of the temple by clicking here.

Share blessings this Christmas by making an offering or sponsoring an item in someone’s name!
When you make a donation your name, or a name offered by you, will be added to a scroll of donors and enshrined in the temple when complete.
