Introduction

Dear friends,

After 6 years full of difficulties, challenges, and complicated legal procedures, on November 3rd, 2016, the county has officially granted permission for the construction Master Plan encompassing a Buddha Hall & 4 steeples totaling 10,000 sq. feet, a garden with statues of Amita Buddha and Avalokitesvara Boddhisttva, each measuring 35 feet tall. This is great news, but also a source of worry, because throughout the years our funding has been exhausted in the process of obtaining the permits.

Currently, the Grading Plan is finished, and the architect is working on the Building Plan for the temple; however, prior to approval of the building plan, all the works of grading and foundation has to be completed.

The anticipated projects for 2018 include:
- Grading plan: flattering of ground, anti-flood system, water system for use and extinguish fire, drainage system, traffic pattern, parking lot.
- Set foundation for the statues of Amita Buddha and Avalokitesvara Boddhisattva.

Your contributions toward the building of this project can occur in the following ways:

- Donation request is $500 per Buddha tile with a limit of only 1000 tiles available.
- You can endorse project foundation for 2 Grant Statues in full or $1000 each person, name engraved on foundation.
- Endorsement one square foot or more, each square foot $300 or more.
- Please view sub-projects for ways that you can contribute.

We sincerely look forward to your continued support and donation towards the construction of our temple.
