Sustaining Fund Membership
for the US Jokhang Temple

The US Jokhang Temple property has been purchased! May all beings benefit! While this is definitely a cause for celebration, we must continue our fundraising efforts to successfully fulfill the entirety of Lama Sonam's vision!  Sustaining Fund Membership will ensure that the US Jokhang Temple can thrive many years into the future.


Our NEW GOAL: Completely pay off our mortgage in 5 years. Yes, we can do this! If everyone chips in even a little, if you join the Sustaining Fund Circle and make a monthly donation, then we can be mortgage free in five years. Emaho!

Please help us actualize the US Jokhang Temple vision!
