Welcome to the Temple Fundraising page. We are excited you have chosen to be here. We are on a journey to create a meditation hall and garden for current and future students of awakening. The spiritual community began under Acariya Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat Sensei in 1998, in Kyoto, Japan. Many of our community have meditated in both Shingon and Zen temples in Japan. The temples are designed to be one with a garden. Function and artistry are the paired weights with which the design is balanced.
We are committed to bringing what we learned in Japanese temple and garden design to the East Kootenays, adapting as necessary to the climate here.
We welcome your donations towards this sincere endeavour to create a beautiful space for people to awaken in this lifetime. May your generosity contribute towards cultivating your joy and happiness.
