London Buddhist Vihara Proposed New Extension

Dear supporter,

We are pleased to announce that the London Buddhist Vihara (LBV) has been granted Planning Approval for a much needed Building Extension.

The proposed building project will include additional bedrooms for resident and visiting monks, relocation of the kitchen, seating area for visitors, additional storage space, relocation of the gents toilet and the ladies toilet, improving the disabled toilet, installing new heating and ventilation systems including the replacement of the existing oil fired boiler and improving the main hall and the sermon hall. The relevant information and the building plans are displayed in the main hall.

In order to complete this important project successfully, the Vihara needs more funding and your support would be most welcome. If you wish to make a donation, please make it payable to London Buddhist Vihara Building Fund or LBV Building Fund. Your donation will be gratefully received and acknowledged with a receipt.

Thank you for your support.

With Metta
The Head Monk and the Vihara Management Committee
