The U.S. Jokhang Temple
Support the Vision!
Our New Home!
We deeply rejoice!
Gratitude, gratitude, gratitude.
May all beings benefit!
Due to the enormous generosity of the community, in July 2022 we celebrated our first anniversary at the new home of the DMC U.S.Jokhang Temple in Danvers, MA. Emaho! This brings Lama Sonam's longtime dream of fully establishing a Jokhang Temple here in the US one very large step closer to fruition!
While this momentous occasion is most definitely a cause for celebration, we still have work ahead of us to secure this very special property the is home to the Jowo Rinpoche Statue and the heart of our community.
Help us fully actualize Lama Sonam's US Jokhang Temple vision! Read on!
Phase 3 Underway!
We have approached this tremendous project in three phases.
Down Payment Fundraising
Property Downpayment / Mortgage Secured
Five Year Mortgage Repayment Goal
We Are Here!
Phase 3 fundraising supports securing the Jokhang Temple property, fully actualizing Lama Sonam’s vision of a flourishing US Jokhang Temple for future generations
The 5 Year Plan
We continuing to grow our Sustaining Fund Circle during Phase 3, so that the US Jokhang Temple can thrive many years into the future. This circle of donors is committed to monthly donations, which will help us consistently meet our monthly mortgage, and expenses.
A New Goal: The Capital Campaign This campaign focuses on completely paying off our mortgage in 5 years. In 5 years our mortgage interest will increase to upwards of 8%. If we can pay down our mortgage commitment 20% each year we can avoid this and look forward to a more secure future for the Jokhang Temple.
On July 19th 2022 we met this goal for year one! With your help we can accomplish the 5 year goal and be mortgage free. Please consider making a generous Capital Fund donation towards this goal or becoming a member of the Sustaining Fund Circle today.
