A mini-meditation for you to do
Take a moment to let your mind become still and peaceful. Then contemplate the benefit you have received through the presence of the Kadampa Meditation Center NYC (or one of its branches) in your life. Let your mind fill with the experience of that benefit.
Ask yourself: Would I like others to experience similar benefits?
If a wish to share this precious experience with others arises in your heart, let that wish fill your mind.
Contemplate: How will creating a highly visible and beautiful Kadampa Buddhist city temple help fulfill this wish?
If though contemplating in this way, a wish to help create this temple arises in your heart, let it fill your mind and focus on it single-pointedly.
