“Generosity is the most natural outward expression of an inner attitude of compassion and loving-kindness.” – H.H. Dalai Lama

Dear Rime Member, Friends, and Supporters,

Another year is coming to a close and the Rime Buddhist Center Board is grateful for your continued support in helping us build a community that values the Buddha’s teachings of love, compassion, and wisdom. There is no doubt that this would not have been possible without your support. Gabi, the Rime Board, and I want to continue the work of our founders, Lama Chuck and Mary, in making the Rime Center not just a place for study and meditation, but also a home that nurtures and supports us on our path to liberation. This year we are asking you to help support the construction of our meditation hall. Our goal is to raise $24,000 towards the Rime Buddhist Center’s Temple Fund.

Please Consider Making a One Time Financial Gift to the Rime Center Temple Fund and Thereby Supporting the Construction of the Meditation Hall.
