Help us open the temple

Thanks to the generosity of the Rigpa Sangha and all those who have donated, the copper roofs of the Dzogchen Beara temple have been completed. Watch a video of the sacred ornaments (spiritual representations of the Dharma) being recently mounted on the roof.

The sacred roof ornaments have been created by craftspeople at Tashi Jong, India, in communities which have served temples through the ages. In a process symbolic of hope for the future of the Dharma, these exquisite items are being finished and gilded at Dzogchen Beara.

To help us open the doors of the temple next year, go to the temple sponsors website to see images and learn more about the different ornaments and elements and how to offer one in your name, in the name of a loved one, or of someone who has passed away.
