You may be interested to participate in this precious offering opportunity.
On October 10, 2018, Rinpoche will celebrate his 83rd birthday.
Rinpoche seems to be doing quite well, energetically engaged in many, many projects at once.
Recently, Andis of Dharma Publishing, our in-house sculptor has completed a life-sized statue of the Buddha, guided by Rinpoche’s specific instructions.
Rinpoche seems to be delighted by the outcome, and its brilliant presence makes an impression on whoever looks at it.
The statue has been cast in bronze and the wish is to finish it with gold leaf, of 24 carats, as a donation offering from the readers of Rinpoche's Dharma Publishing books. We calculate it will need as many as eight boxes of gold leaf to complete. The total estimated cost is approximately US$5000.
100% of your donation will be used for the purchase of the gold leaf. When we offer the gold leaf boxes to Rinpoche, we will include a list of all of you who have participated in this meritorious gift.
Our full-time volunteers, specifically trained in the application of gold leaf, will donate the many hours necessary to apply the leaf to the statue.
If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, please contact us at email@example.com.
With thankfulness to all of you!
Best wishes from all of us who work full-time at Dharma Publishing.
