Green Tara Statue Raffle Fundraiser

Green Tara Statue at Center

An anonymous KTCJax Member has donated two beautiful GREEN TARA STATUES to fundraise for the Center.

Green Tara is the female Buddha of Enlightened activity. She acts for the benefit of all who pray to her with the swiftness of the wind. Her main activity is to brush away fear and danger.

One of these statues will be the prize in a raffle drawing when Lama Lodro visits May 15-17.

STATUE FILLING-CROP

These statues were filled with precious blessing substances by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche himself, the Abbot of KTD, and by the KTD Lamas.

They will also be consecrated by His Holiness the Karmapa when he visits KTD Monastery this month! Lama Lodro will pull the winning raffle ticket May 17th at the end of the Green Tara Teaching & Retreat.

The donation per raffle ticket is $20.

You may purchase raffle tickets now till May 17th.

Please see Casey Stone to purchase your raffle tickets. Even if you cannot attend the Tara Retreat, you can still purchase tickets and participate. Email Casey Stone at yongtentenzin@gmail.com if you live far away or cannot make the weekend teaching, he will mail the statue to you. All proceeds go to keeping the Dharma Center’s doors open.

It’s that time of year again!

If you’re doing some Spring cleaning and come across items you no longer want, consider bringing them to the Center anytime before or after any of our weekly programs. The next yard sale fundraiser is scheduled for June but we are taking item donations for it now.

Leslee has kindly opened up her garage to us where we will store the items. We will announce the exact date in May. There’s still room for us to store things to offer for sale, so please think of us when you’re doing your spring cleaning.

Thank you for your generosity!
