Following Lama Zopa Rinpoche's wishes, we have begun gilding the 12 Deeds of the Buddha plaques in the gompa that were made for us by the sculptor Peter Griffin. The first plaque was finished just in time for the recent visit of HE Ling Rinpoche and looked resplendent!
Now the task is to complete the remainder, hopefully in time for the arrival of Geshe Tenzin Namdak, and the artist Miguel has begun the second plaque in the best quality Italian gold leaf. Several people have begun generously donating £ 500 per plaque to cover the cost at the materials and labour, and it would be wonderful if students or friends of Jamyang would like to contribute. Donations of any size are most welcome, either online on JustGiving, or leaving with our Centre Manager, Sue Williams.
When the plaques are all gilded and the gompa shimmers, a list of the principal donors will be placed on the wall to commemorate their generosity.
