You can also make a donation for a special personal dedication by giving us in writing the name of the beneficiary and the specific reason. All dedications will be read every day for 15 days by Lama Gangchen and the monks, during the Losar celebrations pujas until the 22th February 2016, Buddha Shakyamuni’s miracles day.

Ocean of Mandalas – Temple of Heaven on Earth

“I would like to create a sacred place like a Mandala.
A sacred place helps us to practice and receive a special blessing which reawakens the purity of our own inner Mandala.
Entering into contact with a Mandala and a sacred place creates a condition which directs our mind in a positive way, helping to transform it”.

T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche

Dear Friends,
Once again we are creating the Ocean of Mandalas which consists of the central Mandala of Borobodur and the 108 surrounding Mandalas on the ceiling of the “Temple of Heaven on Earth”.

For this partial restructuring work it is necessary to construct a new false ceiling, replace the electrical and audio systems and reproduce the Mandalas.

Lama Gangchen Rinpoche invites everyone to offer a Mandala with the possibility of making a personal dedication (e.g. success in the Dharma, health, family, work, peace and harmony in the world). These dedications will be placed on the back of each Mandala, where they will remain permanently together with the dedications made by those people who offered the Mandalas in 2012. Groups of people can also join together to offer one or more Mandalas.

To complete this project the help and support of each one of you is essential.

By clicking on the following link oceanofmandalas.ngalso.org you will find information about the dimensions and related costs of the Mandalas and how to pay on-line.

It is also possible to contribute by making a donation in the office in Albagnano or Milan, or via bank transfer:
