Maitreya Center with rainbow

Thank you for considering the Maitreya Center as part of your generosity. Although we have successfully opened the Maitreya Center, some work still needs to be done to complete the inside of the building.

By donating, you will be included in Maitreya’s donor mandala—the circle of supporters who helped establish and maintain an inclusive, multicultural institution for Buddhist study and practice, in the heart of New York’s Hudson Valley region.

Prayer Requests

You may submit names of living and deceased friends, family, and loved ones for dedication prayers. We will arrange to have your list of names blessed at the annual Kagyu Monlam (prayer festival) in Bodh Gaya, India, which is attended by the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa and about 5,000 monks and nuns; and at Korche and Kala Rongo monasteries in Tibet, which house 200 monks in the monastic college and 300 nuns, respectively.  Also, we will include these names for prayers at the 2016 North American Kagyu Monlam, to be hosted here at the Maitreya Center!

Please separate the names into two lists: one list for the living, and one list for the deceased. Email the names to .
