1000 buddhas for Dalai Lama

Around December 2019 the 1000 statues will be finished. Sponsors of statues or any donation will be welcome and very meritorious!

Why?

An email from FPMT says, in part:
On behalf of the entire FPMT organization, Lama Zopa Rinpoche is sponsoring the creation of 1,000 Shakyamuni Buddha statues which will be offered to His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2020.

Each statue will be dedicated to His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s long life.

Good progress - letter from FPMT says:
We are so happy to let you know, that due to everyone’s kindness to date, we have been able to sponsor 589 of the 1,000 statues.

Amazing! We are more than half way to our goal! You are still welcome to be part of this incredible offering by sponsoring a complete statue for US$300, or contributing any amount toward the total needed for all 1,000 statues.
May all seek, find and follow the Path of selflessness.
