CALL FOR CONTRIBUTION For the establishment of Vinh Nghiem Pagoda in the City of Nürnberg, Federal Republic of Germany
Namo Amitabhāya buddhāya
Dear fellow buddhists and our community,
The pagoda is a realm of solemnity where the Buddha graces blessing, peace and harmony for the people; is the place where Buddha’s bell dispells our sorrows; is the pure ashram which guides our heart and soul towards relief and freedom; and the place of eternal spiritual life:
Even though we are away from our homeland, the buddhist community is always looking foward to establishing our own pagoda in this foreign land. For that reason, in the year of 2010, the Vietnamese Buddhism Cultural Center Franken e.V, the Federal Republic of Germany, has founded our modest Vinh Nghiem Pagoda at the 5thFloor of an apartment building in the city of Nürnberg. After two years of operation, the buddhist community has greatly expanded, and the current Vinh Nghiem Pagoda at the city of Nürnberg is becoming overwhelmed and overloaded in meeting the buddhist community’s religious needs. As a result, the Center decided to acquire a better equipped and more spacious lecturing capacity at 60 Castell, 90451 Nürnberg to build the pagoda. This endeavour requires the contribution of our dear buddhists and our community.
In oder for the Vinh Nghiem Pagoda to have a more spacious facility to better cater to our spiritual needs, we sincerely call for our dear Buddhists, our community, to help us with the financial means to build a new Pagoda. This is watched over by the Buddhas, and gives us immeasurable merits not just to our religion but also to the community, not just for us but for our later children:
“Build the pagoda, paint the statues, cast the bells.
All those three things we should do”
The Center sincerely calls for contribution from our buddhists and our community. All financial contributions please be directed to:
