Cost of the Retreat

At present Vajra Vidya has raised $420,000. This is enough to begin building Phase One. The entire building has been estimated to cost about $ 1,125,000. There has been an additional cost of $ 45,000 for the road and utilities.

PHASE ONE (estimated cost $ 450,000)

The North Wing: If we can raise $75,000 more by May, 2004 then the North Wing can be completed. This would include eight retreat rooms, a small shrine room, staff quarters, the kitchen, dining room, laundry, and bathroom facilities.

PHASE TWO (estimated cost $ 225,000)
Raising this additional $ 225,000 would allow the completion of the large shrine room and library. Some traditional texts as well as a small audio and video tape library have been obtained. These with computers and research tools would be installed with the completion of Phase Two.

PHASE THREE (estimated cost $ 450,000)
With sufficient funds the project would be completed thus providing a total of 20 retreat spaces and the quarters for the monastic teaching staff as well as support staff.

Phase I (which won't include shrine room)
