1,000 Buddha Images Temple Offering

We invite you to become a benefactor of our centre by sponsoring the installation of one or more of 1,000 Buddha images within our new Buddha Pavilion Temple Room. Please find out more in our sponsorship form. Payment can be made by posting a cheque to the Buddhist Discussion Centre (Upwey) Ltd or online by making a PayPal donation (see below).

Your contribution will help us construct the Buddha Pavilion Temple Room in our centre’s garden. The new construction will be a traditional Asian temple style building and will house and protect our centre’s largest Buddha image which is currently installed in a temporary housing on the Golden Pavilion. The building is scheduled for completion by the end of 2018.

In the time of the Buddha, on the occasion of the dedication of the Venuvan Vihar Temple by the King Bimbisara, the Lord Buddha said:

“None is able to describe the merit of donating a Vihar except the Buddha, the Lord of the universe, if some thousands of learneds describe that, there will be no end.”

Dharmarajika Children’s Orphanage – Bangladesh

The Buddhist Discussion Centre Australia has raised money to support the Dharmarajika Orphanage in Dhaka, Bangladesh for nearly 30 years and we are well on the way to contributing AUD$7,000 per annum to help care for and educate approximately 500 children who reside there.

We accept donations on behalf of the orphanage which are banked into a dedicated account for transfer to Bangladesh. The Buddhist Discussion Centre Australia does not deduct any administration charges so the orphanage will receive the full amount of your gift.

To make a donation please send your cheque to the Buddhist Discussion Centre (Upwey) Ltd, 33 Brooking Street, Upwey, Victoria, 3158 Australia or online by making a PayPal donation (see below).

We wish to acknowledge with gratitude Ishka handcrafts for their generous support of this project.
