On behalf of the entire FPMT organization, Lama Zopa Rinpoche is
planning to offer one thousand statues of Shakyamuni Buddha to His Holiness the
Dalai Lama. These nine inch statues are currently being made, painted, filled
and consecrated, and will be offered directly by Rinpoche to His Holiness at
the end of 2019, or early 2020. The statues are being offered with prayers for
His Holiness’ very long life.
Everyone can join this project!
You can sponsor a completed statue for US$300, or you are
welcome to offer any amount you are able, thereby participating in this most
precious offering of one thousand statues for His Holiness’s long life.
These holy objects help sentient beings easily purify
inconceivable negative karma and create the causes for happiness and extensive
merit, which brings them to enlightenment quickly by realizing the path up to
enlightenment. The moment holy objects, such as statues of Buddha, are
completed they become a field of merit for sentient beings. They become only a
cause for others to achieve happiness.
