Maitreya Center Plaques

Donate to see your name or a dedication name on a permanent plaque

Maitreya Center PlaquesBoth Tai Situ Rinpoche and Kalu Rinpoche have said that dedicating a shrine to the future Buddha Maitreya in America will greatly benefit the country and it's people. It is through the offering of Dharma that we create the conditions for sentient beings to receive the Buddha’s teachings and awaken to their true nature, which is no different than the Buddha. Generous sponsors will be recognized with a permanent plaque located in the Maitreya Shrine Hall to receive blessings.

Maitreya Center Permanent Plaque: $1,500 per plaque
