Sponsor a Buddha – Create a Legacy

You now have an opportunity to be a part of this miraculous display of compassion.

Sponsor one of these beautiful statues of the Buddha Shakyamuni and help to ensure that KPC can continue to provide a place of peace, refuge, and 24-hour prayer.  See a plaque with your personal dedication displayed for years to come creating a legacy for you and your family.

In the Buddhist tradition, it is believed that just seeing the Buddha’s image plants the seed for awakening in one’s mind. Planting that seed starts one on the path to true happiness.

Sponsor a Buddha for $1,000. This can be a single payment or split into four monthly payments.

One of the main focal points of the prayer room at KPC is the altar to the Buddha Shakyamuni. Representing the 1,002 Buddhas prophesied to appear in this fortunate aeon, the altar was constructed in 1988 prior to the arrival of His Holiness Penor Rinpoche who was to bestow for the first time in America a cycle of empowerments and teachings called the Rinchen Terzod.

Each Buddha statue has been filled with sacred prayers and offerings, and then sealed and blessed by His Holiness Penor Rinpoche and Her Eminence Jetsunma Ahkon Lhamo Rinpoche. Ever since, this resplendent altar has bestowed blessings and spiritual inspiration to all who see it.

Imagine walking into the prayer room and seeing gold flowing outward in both directions like ocean waves, each sponsored statue representing a commitment to attain enlightenment, to end suffering or to remember a loved one. As each Buddha statue is sponsored it receives a new coat of gold, a newly painted face, and receives its own plaque with your dedication printed on it to be viewed for years to come.

The 1000 Buddha altar is located in the main prayer room, where prayers have been made continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for over 30 years. The Buddhas receive the constant blessing of those prayers, as well as the profound blessings of the many teachings and empowerments which take place at KPC.
