We are living in a difficult time, there is concern in the world.

 

Bring your own family candleholder to the altar – in our new centre. So you can always be reminded of contributing to the better world, for the light of the wisdom to increase: both on symbolic way, and on practical way, by training your mind.

Donate to the statues and thankas at the center

FPMT’s spiritual leader Lama Zopa Rinpoche has advised us to have Mansjuhri as the main staty at the centre: it represents the wisdom mind (sword-like sharp). And of course we´ll have the other counterpart; staty of Bodhisattva of Compassion which symbolizes the method.
See how you can donate on yeshenorbu.se.
