New Home for KTC Jacksonville (KTC 傑克遜維爾的新家園)

$60,939 of $120,000 goal

Raised by 105 people in 15 months

Fulfilling the Vision in 2019: A New Home for KTC Jacksonville 

For 33 years, KTC Jacksonville has been the face of Tibetan Buddhism in Jacksonville and the North Florida area. We have offered free meditation instruction weekly to the public during these many years and have been an academic resource for local universities and colleges. Thousands of people have come into contact with meditation and Buddhism because of this center. KTC Jacksonville has been at our current location at McDuff Avenue for 16 years. As the center continues to grow, the need for a permanent building has become vital. Our rent is increasing every year and the infrastructure of the building is decaying. Our need for a new home became even more urgent in 2016 when a pipe ruptured one night and flooded the entire center with several inches of water. The cost of the damages and restoration was over $12,000.

The purchase of a larger space that the KTC Jacksonville can call its own will have a greater capacity to serve the needs of our community. We will be able to better host retreats, have visiting teachers and monastics stay in our new building, have a larger shrine room to accommodate more participants, organize different events, and even have a kitchen to cook vegan cuisine for the different programs that we host year-round. It is also our aspiration to have His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Orgyen Trinley Dorje, visit Jacksonville when we have a permanent building! We are trying to raise $120,000 for an initial down payment for this new home.

Our teachers, like Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, strongly endorse, as well as encourage support for KTC Jacksonville’s initiative to establish a permanent center and they have also contributed significantly to this worthy cause. With over $53,000 raised in 2018, this leaves us $67,000 left to raise to complete our fundraising goal of $120,000. It is our hope to raise the remaining needed funds for this project in 2019. Your contribution is vital. If you believe in the transformative power of meditation and the Buddhadharma, we ask for your continuous support of this meaningful aim.

Karma Thegsum Choling Jacksonville is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in the State of Florida. Your donations are tax deductible. All donations go directly to KTC Jacksonville for the purpose of having a permanent building for our community.

Thank you for your support!

Sincerely,

實現2019年的願景:KTC 傑克遜維爾的新家園


33年來,KTC傑克遜維爾一直是傑克遜維爾區和北方佛羅里達州的藏傳佛教代表中心。這些年來,我們每周向大眾提供免費禪修指導。並成為當地大學和學院的教學資源。因為這個中心,很多人因此而接觸禪修和佛教。 KTC傑克遜維爾位於麥克杜夫大道已有16年。隨著中心的不斷發展,需要一個永久性的中心變得至關重要。我們的租金每年都在增長,而基礎設施也不斷在腐
。在2016年,我們對建立新的中心需求變得更加迫切。有天晚
,當地下水管破裂,幾英寸的水淹沒了整個中心。損害和補修花費的成本超過$12,000美元。


購買更大的KTC傑克遜維爾中心,擁有更大的空間來提供我們社區的需求。我們也將能夠舉辦更好的閉關法會,並讓來訪的老師和出家衆留在我們的新居住。有一個更大的佛殿,以容納更多的參與者,和舉辦不同的活動。甚至有一個廚房,可為全年中心舉辦的活動節目,而烹飪不同的純素食。我們的願望是擁有
者第17世大寶法王 噶瑪巴 鄥金欽列多傑 來訪,當我們完成永久的中心。我們正在努力籌集12萬美元為這個新中心的首期付款。


我們的老師們,像堪布卡達仁波切,非常
同,並鼓勵對KTC的支持。對傑克遜維爾建立永久中心也做出了重大貢獻。在2018年籌集了超過$53,000美元,只剩下了$67,000美元需籌集的資金。籌款目標為$120,000美元。我們希望在2019年為該項目籌集剩餘的所需資金。 你的貢獻至關重要。如果你相信冥想的改變力量和佛法,我們需求你不斷支持這個有意義的目標。

Our hearts have been full of so much gratitude lately as KTC Jacksonville fundraises for a new permanent home for the Center in Jacksonville. Our Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, KTD Lamas(such as Lama Lodro Lhamo and Lama Karma), and a good amount of generous individuals have donated to the fundraising campaign. We still have a long way to go to fulfill the vision but everything is going well. I feel so grateful for our monasteries, temples, centers and our Dharma Masters. Without them the teachings of the Buddha would not have come into our lives. These preservers of the Buddha's teachings have made our connection to the Dharma possible. A couple days ago on the last day Chötrul Duchen, the sacred days known as the Buddha's Days of Miracles, Khenpo Rinpoche donated $1000 to KTC for us to have a new home and he thanked the KTC Jax Board of Directors for working hard for His Holiness Karmapa's center. Khenpo Rinpoche was sent to the U.S. by the previous Karmapa about 40 years ago to bring the Buddha's teachings here for the sake of benefiting sentient beings. Without Rinpoche's tireless, constant work and of other Masters after him, our access to the Dharma in the West, and even our connection to it, would be very limited. We rejoice in merit of everyone that has donated! Karmapa Khyenno!

Thank you Gyamtso, Toni, Kai, Lucy, Corinne, and Francie for your donations this week! We rejoice so much in the merit of your generosity. Every donation gets us closer to our goal of having a permanent center for KTC Jacksonville. KTC Jacksonville has touched so many throughout its over 30 years of inception because of Venerable Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. KTC Jacksonville is more than a building or temple. It is a community that, in the darkness, is able find the light within and extend this out into the world. I believe we are creating a culture based on kindness for all sentient beings, alleviating pain and suffering.
