Building Sale Complete
Dear <<First Name>>,
We finally did it! Thanks to all your prayers, dedications, donations, time, support and enthusiasm - this afternoon Jamyang Leeds officially become the owner of its first building!
It's been two and a half years since we planned to buy a property and 13 months since we first viewed the property in Holbeck 'Clyde Works.'
And at such an auspicious time, we're still in the 14 days of miracles that marks the beginning of the Tibetan New Year. A small miracle of our own!
Our Spiritual Director Lama Zopa Rinpoche has been an inspiration to many of us since we started with FPMT, and we hope he'll soon come and visit us. May this project fulfil his vast vision to help beings around the universe.
We're not quite ready to open to the public yet, we need to make sure it's safe and cosy. Over the next 2 months, we'll be knocking down walls, painting, cleaning, installing kitchens and showers, and creating our lovely gompa (meditation room). The opening weekend will be 27-28 April when Ling Rinpoche is visiting. More details to be announced soon. Keep the date free!
In the meantime:
This has been an amazing journey and we are creating something really special. Our new centre will help people know that all they need for happiness is with them already, their minds. With your help, we can help people experience inner happiness and calm. "World Peace through Inner Peace" as HH Dalai Lama often says. It all starts with us.
- If you can offer time to clean etc., get in touch.
- We need some help from Plumbers, Electricians and Builders and Joiners so if you have skills let us know.
- We need your donations now to cover the work on the inside, we're going to go as far as we can but we think we'll need another £20,000 to complete all the work including fitting a new kitchen for the cafe and replacing some windows. Please donate here.
- We also need furniture: a few couches and comfy chairs, tables, white goods, clothes racks
- Please continue to dedicate your merit (positive karma) by reciting Tara Praises, mantras, or any positive practice you do
- Consider renting our office spaces, function room or warehouse space. Pass on our details and we can send a brochure with the rental options.
Much love from Kerry and the JBCL team.
