Fund Raising Campaign

Desert Zen Center and Temple Chùa Thiên Ân is grateful for the people who have started a fund raising campaign; with a dinner on October 11.  For over twenty years our Master,  Ven. Roshi Thích Ân Giáo has brought us the teachings of The Buddha.  A new water well will alow us to continue teaching the Dharma, and we are most thankful for those who are helping us continue our work.

If the donated funds are greater than the cost of a new water well, it has been suggested that a Kwan Yin statue could be brought to us from abroad.  And finally a temple gate could be made that announces that we are a place where one can find the path to end suffering, and pray that those we love do the same.

Donations can be made by mail; please click here for our address.
