Funding thoughts 001 (2)

We really, really need to fix the roof and install a new septic tank before winter sets in again. Please help us by  sponsoring a tile, or two, or three……

1460 tiles are needed to enable our roof to withstand the winter storms and keep our volunteers, retreatants (and bats) warm and dry overhead.

Meanwhile the septic tank, originally installed for a family residence, urgently needs upgrading to deal with increased numbers and current legislation.

£35 will sponsor one tile – and provide a new septic tank to deal with the waste products (bats not included).


[N. B. We are using Givey as trial. Please be aware that it will charge you an additional £1.75 per tile, but that does mean that the full £35 will be passed on to LoJ. As an alternative you can donate straight into our bank account (details here)]


Each donor will receive a beautiful tsa-tsa (small moulded relief) of Ganapati – the powerful twelve-armed red elephant-headed deity recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche as a source of blessings to support fund-raising for Land of Joy. Moreover, we offer to write the name of a donor, in gold lettering, on the underside of the roof tile(s) sponsored, so it may be touched by the vibrations of the retreat practices from the gompa below, but won’t be washed away by the rain.
