Nalanda MonasteryLama Zopa Rinpoche has expressed the importance of continually developing Nalanda Monastery’s facilities and programs in order to create a major seat of monastic learning in the West and accommodation for an extra 100 monks. To achieve this, a 15-year master plan has been drawn up to skillfully develop Nalanda’s land and cater for its foreseen growth. Phase One of the plan runs through 2012 and includes the construction of new accommodations for 25 monks and two teachers and the development of new infrastructure, a new heating system, and extensive landscaping. The Lama Zopa Rinpoche Bodhichitta Fund, due to the incredible kindness of a benefactor, was able to generously donate *US$1,000,000 in 2010 toward these efforts (which are available in detail on the Nalanda website.)
You can read a recent article in Mandala magazine (October-December 2012) about Nalanda's 15-Year Master Plan.
*These funds are disbursed in an ongoing manner, according to the needs of the project.
