To assist this precious monastery's mission in building a new prayer hall that will accommodate their growing monastic community and is worthy of this important Tantric University. Many of you are very familiar with this project, and have supported it from it's onset. For our new friends you can read more about this at http://segyugadenphodrang.org/new-prayer-hall-project/.

At this time Segyu Monastery is the only Tantric University in our tradition. Due to the current conditions, which has led to the loss of the support they experienced in the past, one of the most significant aspects of this project will be Segyu’s ability to accommodate and house monastics from all of the great Gelug monasteries as they continue with their Tantric studies. Many lamas are working together to create a new comprehensive study program, which will protect and ensure the continuation of this pure, unbroken Tantric Lineage of Je Tsongkhapa.

Together we have made great accomplishments in the contruction of the new prayer hall but still have a ways to go to competion. Your support also helps to support the growing amount of mini monks we have now since the earthquake, as well as the senior monks who care for them.

Contribution towards Lineage Guru Statues
  • 0 claimed
Partial sponsorship of a statue (if you would like to sponsor a specific statue put name in comment box or can say any statue)
BENEFITS:
The holy Dharma has flourished for over 2500 years. It has flourished because of the kindness of the our lineage gurus that practiced purely, received its results and patiently passed it onto their disciples intact.
One of most powerful ways of collecting merit is being connected to the construction of objects of worship such as statues of our Holy Gurus. Enlightened Beings bestow blessings and bring peace, compassion and hope into our lives. They serve to remind us that we have a powerful ally and protector in our lives if we rely on them. As statues are in fact the essence of a particular Enlightened Being, whoever views them, makes offerings, or prays to them will actually receive the same blessings as if they had made prayers or offerings in front of the actual Enlightened Being.

Puja
  • 24 claimed
We have many Pujas throughout the month. Puja is a Sanskrit word meaning offering or service. The earliest Buddhist pujas, still practiced in Theravada, consisted of placing flowers, lights and incense in front of a symbol or image of the Buddha. The value of the practice is that it grows out of and reinforces faith and devotion which are considered positive emotions able to motivate and enhance one's practice of the Dharma. In Mahayana, pujas are often long and elaborate. Tantrayana has a wide variety of very elaborate pujas, some meant to be expressions of devotion others to induce wealth, long life, world peace, help from the gods and also spiritual qualities.

We will announce all upcoming pujas and you can make a donation of $20 or more to help sponsor that puja, which will go towards the offering substances and alms for the monks. We will include your name, or names of who you would like to dedicate this to, in the dedications for that puja. Half of that donation will go towards
