Hokke Shugen Retreat & Training Center

Want to join me in making a difference? I'm raising money to benefit the purchase of land and the building of a structure for the education and training in the Gyo (Austere) practices of Buddhism, and any donation will help make an impact.

This funding will be used for the purchase of land, the building of Main Hall and the student dormitory.

The property that we are looking to purchase will be in a rural area that will be close to a mountain, waterfall, and river that will be used in these austere practices.  Practices will be available to both clergy and layperson.  

The Main Training Hall will be designed by the plans of Sensei Bernie Lau original dojo.   These are some historical pictures of the original training dojo.

All names of donations will be read and recorded.  

Donations over $500 will be placed on a special Mandala Scroll that will be read and shared in the main dojo on every anniversary.

Donations over $1000 will have an official wooden ofuda (nameplate) that will be kept in the main hall. 

Thanks in advance for your contribution this is a major step for Buddhism in the United States.

With Gassho...
