We are Pleased to Announce a Matching Donation
A generous donor has offered to match $50,000 in donations to Wisdom Foundation for the construction of a reliquary building (pictured above) in Natural Bridge, Virginia.
The match will apply to donations made from now through January 31, 2017. The building will house a precious golden stupa containing a portion of Shamar Rinpoche's relics— one of the few such reliquaries in the world, and the only one thus far in the U.S. and Canada. The golden stupa is already complete and will be shipped from France once we are ready to receive it.
A site has been chosen for the reliquary building on what Rinpoche referred to as "Buddha Hill," near the current timber-framed Buddha Shelter. Visitors can follow landscaped paths to visit the reliquary stupa site and the shelter. See the retreat center website for more photos
Your donations will have twice the impact by helping us meet the matching donation.
