The Thousand Buddha Temple was established in 2016 in Greensboro, North Carolina. The Temple’s focus is on applying Buddha’s teachings to bring immediate and long-term happiness to our everyday lives. All visitors are welcome at the Thousand Buddha Temple. We seek to provide an inclusive and accessible community for all to learn and practice. We look forward to seeing you at the Thousand Buddha Temple!
The building of this unique temple is supported by voluntary financial donations, as well as gifts of time, talent and energy. A new Gompa (shrine room) will be constructed that will be graced by 1,000 statues of Shakyamuni Buddha that represent all the Buddhas that will appear in this cosmic eon. These 1,000 Shakyamuni Buddha statues were lovingly and painstakingly crafted by Buddhists across the United States over the last 13 years. 108 of these statues currently are on display.
