Thanks and Gratification:-
Dear Dharma Friends, As decided by the Management Committee of Maha Bodhi Buddhist Temple (MBT) Tuichawng-2, I have reached out to many Dhamma friends around the world for a generous DONATION for construction of Maha Bodhi Buddhist Temple in Lunglei District, Mizoram, India.
After a long time, I have written to our Dhamma Mother, Monica Thaddey of Switzerland for the construction of our temple.
And it is very happy to state that, Mother has wholeheartedly agreed to support us in building our Buddhist temple as we have told her that this temple would be beneficial for the students of Mahabodhi School and also the local devotees for the propagation, preservation and protection of Buddhism in Mizoram, India.
Now, the construction of the temple have been started with the generous contribution made by our Mother and the duration of the temple construction is 6 months and maybe extended due to some other circumstances.
The tutpm & the MBT of Tuichawng is highly acknowledge and thanks to Mother Monica for her generous support towards building our Buddhist temple and her contribution shall be remarkable for all the Buddhist community of Tuichawng.
It is said that through wisdom can the mind be freed from defilements, but Dana is also a prerequisite for propagation of Dhamma Practice, meditation, and Samadhi leads to wisely reflection, and wisely reflection leads (together with the power of Samadhi) to wisdom, and wisdom leads to detachment, and detachment leads to awakening.
The subject of this thanks giving note presents just such an opportunity and it is for the most worthy of causes-to support a place of worship and cultivation of mind, at MBT in southern Mizoram, India.
In so doing through her generous support make manifest the words of the most basic Buddhist prayer, to support the teachings of the Dhamma and Vipassana Meditation, the remembrance of the Buddha, and the followers of the Buddha.
Establishment and construction of a Concrete structure Buddhist Temple at this remote areas will serve the diverse spiritual needs of all Micro minority chakma Buddhists and non-Buddhists with warmth and spiritual openness. It will also serve as a center to teach and practice the techniques of meditation for the purpose of spiritual development. The students of Mahabodhi Residential School (MBRS) will get an opportunity to learn Dhamma through this Buddhist Temple.
The local people are mostly farmers and cultivators were unable to raise sufficient fund in financially as per the amount needed. But they used to make donation as per their possibilities from their earnings. All are indigenous poor Chakma community and follows Buddhism from time immemorial.
The contribution Of Mother will help and in its entirety go towards a new Buddhist Temple.
By making a donation to her ability, She is indeed lending a hand to continue this precious effort to spread the lucid word of the Lord Gauthama Buddha.
As we all know that, Buddha said in the Mindfulness Sutra: Whoever has built the support [statue] and supporting [temple] well and arranged a place and for the needs of the Sangha will always have more and more happiness and virtue. The virtue can never be wasted or lost, even for millions of eons. One who has built the holy body of Buddha (statue), the holy speech of Buddha (scripture), the holy mind of Buddha (stupa), the kungarawa (temple or shelf for Dharma texts), and establishes the monastery (Sangha), gains very extensive merit, which is never lost and always increases.
So, We believe our Dhamma mother has earned lot's of merits by helping us in building this vihara.
Any amount of donation either big or small is heartily accepted from any other well wisher's.
May you all have the blessing by the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha.
Your's in the Dhamma,
Gen. Secretary, TUTPM &
