Dearest friends of the Beaufoy everywhere!

It has been over six very exciting years since we first entered the Beaufoy Institute with Lama Ole and turned it into the New London Buddhist Centre.

In that time, thousands of friends visited the Centre from all over the world during courses with our lamas, helped us progress the renovation works at the many Power Weekends, and assisted us in filling the magnificent Buddha statue. We want to thank you for all your support so far. You have been helping us bring the life force back to this amazing building!

We now have over 20 residents living in the centre in 16 rooms (and we’ll have more!), the heating system is finally working and the building has not been flooded since 2017! In other words, we got a bit too comfortable… And that is why we are up for a new BIG challenge, and we want you to join us!

Help us renovate the Beaufoy’s Grand Hall – the crown jewel of our London centre.

For the past year, we have been working on the design of the space, consulting professionals and our teachers, Lama Ole and Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche. We hope to be able to commence building works in autumn 2019 and have the Gompa inaugurated by Lama Ole during his next visit.

Before that, we need to raise EUR 400,000, which will allow us to conduct all necessary renovation works. This includes replacing windows, restoring and protecting wall ornaments, installing a heating system and high-quality audio-visual equipment.

The Grand Hall in its unrenovated state has already been blessed by our great teachers including the 17th Karmapa, Shamar Rinpoche, Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche and Lama Ole. Once it is renovated, we will be able to present it as a cultural jewel and host events for hundreds of people to enjoy.

Please donate to our project and help us to kick-start the renovation of this precious place.

If you have any questions about our project and how to contribute towards the Grand Hall Fundraising Project, visit our stand during courses with Lama Ole or contact us at [email protected].

Let’s make history together!
