Buddha Shelter (Pavilion)
at Natural Bridge, Virginia
Buddha Shelter Fundraising Information
High up on a hilltop, rising into the clouds above the Natural Bridge center, the 14th Shamar Rinpoche's vision for an open sided Buddha Shelter is coming to fruition.
The project has many phases. Already a long new road was cut, the forest cleared for the site, the foundation laid, and the timbers raised. The beautiful Buddha statue was lifted onto a multi-layer stone pedestal, where it sits inside this very attractive structure. Constructed using traditional timber framing methods, it is a beautiful sight to see.
Rinpoche envisioned many visitors to this wonderful site in the upcoming years. Other improvements are still planned for the site including an official trail, landscaping, and parking.
We hope that you come to visit and see the vision that is coming to life.
