While visiting Greenhaugh Hall (now the home of Land of Joy) in 2014, Lama Zopa Rinpoche recommended the Ganapati Mantra for Success was recited to ensure the establishment and then continuing success of the centre.
Many of you will know we ran a previous campaign aiming to collect 108,000 Ganapati mantras. Based on the assumption that all those who pledged to recite are still doing so we have reached our aim. Wow, wow, wow! Thank you so much to all those who kept Land of Joy in your hearts and recited these mantras for our success.
During the past 18 months (the time the campaign has been running), the centre has grown from strength to strength and even received a very large donation to help improve our retreat facilities.
Now a fully established, thriving retreat community, we are on the verge of being able to completely replace the troublesome part of our roof which will keep our guests and volunteers cosy and dry this winter as well as beginning the renovation of our coachhouse in the next couple of months.
We have no doubt the mantras recited have played a massive part in this!
We’re now in a very exciting phase of development with the roof repairs and coachhouse renovation about to begin which will provide new (much needed!) single and twin accommodation, as well a new gompa to house the large Kurukulla statue Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised we should have at Land of Joy. How amazing to be able to fulfil our spiritual leader’s wishes!
We are also in the process of researching designs for our individual retreat huts, hoping to be able to invite people to sponsor these much needed personal retreat spaces within the next year or so.
We still need a significant amount of money to be able to finish the coachhouse renovation and build the retreat huts and of course there are always likely to be obstacles to such beneficial projects which will need to be removed!
We strongly believe people continuing to recite the Ganapati Mantras for Land of Joy’s success, particularly keeping these projects in mind, will enable us to actualise these amazing plans!
How can you Help?
If you’re still reciting mantras for us please don’t stop and if you haven’t joined in yet please join the Land of Joy Ganapati Mantra Recitation Team and start creating the causes for our wishes to be fulfilled as quickly as possible!
You don’t have to do the whole practice, just the mantra with the strong motivation for it to help remove any obstacles that might prevent Land of Joy from successfully completing these projects and continuing to thrive as a centre in general. Think that reciting them will enable Land of Joy to fulfil all our wishes and be as beneficial to all sentient beings as possible. Then dedicate all the positive energy you have created to the success of Land of Joy and the removal of all obstacles as well as the benefit of all sentient beings.
Forty people reciting just seven mantras a day will add up to 100,000 mantras in a year – that’s amazing!
The more mantras that are recited for us the more likely it is we will continue to succeed in benefiting all those who come here and all sentient beings elsewhere.
Thank you for being a part of our ongoing journey.
