Building Buddha Maitreya the Christ’s Shambhala Monastery

We would like to invite you to be part of the process of furthering the Buddha Maitreya the Christ's Shambhala Monastery project by making a donation, joining our tithing program, or helping fundraise in whatever ways you can. This is a multi-million dollar project. It has great meaning and purpose, and we need your help.

Thanks to the generosity of many students and friends, the monastery as whole is well established as this point. We have completed the exteriors of the buildings. Finished interiors of two domes serve in the south end as Sangha residence and, in the north, guest rooms, main kitchen and visitor dining area. The Shambhala Life Extending Wellness center occupies one floor of a third dome. Landscaping and gardens are in progress: 2 Koi ponds have been added, hundreds of trees planted along the drive, and deer fencing and new dome greenhouse purchased. A beautiful wooden pergola is half way complete.

We need to complete the pergola and the remaining floor of the Shambhala Wellness Dome; build the interiors of two more of the remaining empty domes and then furnish in order to accommodate more guests and visitors; further enhance landscaping and gardens, pave the one mile private road - and of course much more as funds permit.

The monastery is a true monastic refuge; it is a retreat for the Soul, a prototype for advanced lifestyle. Buddha Maitreya the Christ's applied sacred geometric temple is to heal and bless the world - everyone. It gives great benefit to the community and humanity as a whole radiating as it does his healing blessings for planetary healing. Sacred geometric forms are the building blocks of the universe, and an expression of matter in an enlightened form. Also there is great personal merit that comes with assisting such projects.

The building of this monastery is profound in a way beyond words. Shambhala is the world governed by the Law of Love! So, we would like to extend to you a personal invitation to be a part of this auspicious and historical process. Just imagine, with enough financial support this could be just the beginning - the possibilities of what Buddha Maitreya the Christ can design and bring into form are, truly endless.
Over $4 million to Tibetan Buddhist Projects

Help support our ongoing projects in Asia. Since 1994, Buddha Maitreya the Christ and his wife Mandarava Tara have supported the renewal and restoration of sacred sites across Nepal as well as India and Tibet: rebuilding Tibetan monasteries in Dema and Litang, Tibet; constructing new Prayer halls at several Khamtsen colleges within Drepung Loseling Buddhist University, India and establishing The Great Namgyal Stupa for all Tibetan refugees and ex-political prisoners within H.H. Dalai Lama's Residence in Dharamsala.

In addition, Buddha Maitreya the Christ provides ongoing regular support of the practical daily needs of several Tibetan Buddhist Monasteries with a focus on improving the basics: diet, clothing, shelter and healthcare. Since 1996, over $4 million has been given to Tibetan Buddhist projects.

Buddha Maitreya has also established a network of free medical clinics and treatment centers in Nepal. Located in the cities of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Pharping. The clinics provide both allopathic and homeopathic medicine including the use of the Buddha Maitreya Shambhala Healing Tools & Soul Therapy to the poor and those most in need.

Wisdom comes from Giving

"My main teaching and my main work is Charity and the focus of Tibetan Buddhism... All of those teachings are based on Charity. Wisdom comes from Giving. It is the hardest thing in the world to do. So it's our Bodhicitta, Buddha nature that allows us to do this. Money can make you greedy; it can make people greedy, money itself. But money is a source of all wealth all prana. It is not inherently negative; it is a vehicle for Giving. If you give it, you receive it. Its magic is so powerful yet, if you hold onto it, it will take away Buddha nature and it will destroy you. It is made to be given away, to be shared." An extract of a teaching Buddha Maitreya the Christ gave to Nyagre Khamtsen of Drepung Loseling Buddhist University in 2002.

Buddha Maitreya the Christ and his wife Tara started helping exiled Tibetan Refugees and Tibetan Monasteries in 1994, when they established the Sanatan Dharma Center in Kathmandu, Nepal, near the famous Boudha Stupa. Over the years this center was home to many exiled Tibetans and the base for extensive charitable work throughout Nepal, India, and Tibet.

In 1996, Buddha Maitreya the Christ established the Church of Shambhala Vajradhara Maitreya Sangha, a 501c(3) non-profit American Buddhist Church, offering the opportunity for western students to lead more spiritual and service orientated lives as monks and nuns. The Church represents both East and West and the tenets of Christianity and Buddhism, with charitable activity and harmlessness as the fundamental teachings. Around this time, Buddha Maitreya also founded "The New Group of World Servers Trust" as a UK Registered Charity operating from his Dharma Center in Glastonbury, UK.

From 2000 onwards Buddha Maitreya has been financially supporting over 25 monastic projects, including large monastery reconstruction projects, and provides regular donations to hundreds of individuals in these countries for food, shelter, healthcare and education.

In 2006, Buddha Maitreya the Christ and Tara found land in Lake County, Northern California on which to construct their first American Monastery - Buddha Maitreya the Christ’s Shambhala Monastery for Planetary Healing. At the present day, Buddha Maitreya the Christ and Tara direct a small, established group of "Sangha" (western Buddhist monks and nuns) and gives regular "Dharshan" teachings and weekly OM Meditations live online from the Monastery to dharma students from around the world to help them attain greater discernment and live a more Soulful life.

The Sangha dedicate their daily service to handcrafting, distributing, and helping people learn about Buddha Maitreya’s Shambhala Healing & Meditation Tools, running the Shambhala Life Extending Wellness Center and overseeing private retreats. Today there are many more charitable projects including free clinics in Nepal and the support of local food charties in Lake County.
