“Generosity is the virtue that produces peace.”
—The Sutra of the Recollection of the Three Jewels
You are invited to join us in completing the precious and timely Peace Mandala Project. It is Lama Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche’s aspiration that this historic and profound mandala be constructed in North America according to the ancient tantric Buddhist tradition. We aspire to accomplish this in order to bring peace and harmony and pacify negative energies for the benefit of all sentient beings.
Through the blessings of our gurus and your support, much has been accomplished since Lama Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche first initiated the Peace Mandala Project in 2003.
None of this would have been possible without the constant prayers and blessings of Lama Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche, who has overseen every step of the work to make certain that it is completed within the bounds of the ancient tantric Buddhist tradition. He completed the land consecration and necessary ritual preparations to ensure the success of the project with as little negative impact on the local environment and its occupants.
Lama Dawa Chhodak Rinpoche has often said that the Peace Mandala Project is his vision, but that the project belongs to his students to complete in order to benefit all sentient beings. It is our responsibility to ensure that his aspiration is fulfilled.
