The Ashoka Pillars Fund

Protect Future Generations with the Gift of Dharma

King Ashoka was a wheel-turning king and strong supporter of the Buddha’s teachings. He lived around 260BC and was known to be a fierce and brutal warrior before he embraced Buddhism. So horrified was he by his own negative actions that he renounced violence and dedicated himself to the Middle Way and flourished the Dharma. With his strong merit, he was able to build numerous monumental stone pillars throughout his kingdom to inspire his people. Each pillar, measuring 12-15 metres in height and weighing 50 tonnes, was inscribed with Buddhist teachings. His legacy lives to this day. 10 of these pillars can still be seen in parts of India including Vaishali, Patna and Sarnath.         

Now, there is an opportunity for you to follow in the footsteps of King Ashoka to create the cause to be a wheel-turning king and leave a legacy that will benefit generations to come. Thekchen Choling’s Project G.I.V.E. is now transiting to become the Ashoka Pillars Fund. The Ashoka Pillars Fund will continue to be a monthly contribution of any amount that will support Thekchen Choling’s objectives of propagating and preserving the Dharma, and serve the community by funding the temple’s operating expenses. In appreciation of your support, we are now offering benefactors special monthly prayer dedications based on the level of contribution.  Every contribution is a great opportunity for merit accumulation. We rejoice at your merit and generosity to protect future generations with the gift of Dharma.
