Land of Medicine Buddha (LMB) is a Tibetan Buddhist Dharma Center situated on 108 acres in beautiful Soquel, CA, USA. We are affiliated with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). LMB is a unique Dharma Center in that there are many different populations that come to the Land on any given day — Dharma program participants, facility rental guests, and the general public. No matter the reason, our goal is to ensure every guest of LMB is met with warmth and loving-kindness.

We are currently seeking a Spiritual Program Coordinator (SPC) to join Team LMB around October 1st, 2017. This is a full time (35 hours per week) paid position. There is the possibility of this being a residential position.

The SPC works closely with the Executive Director to develop, design, and implement the spiritual program at LMB. The SPC is responsible to the Executive Director and to FPMT International Office to ensure that the Center’s spiritual program is in line with FPMT policy and guidelines, ensuring that it reflects the unique teaching style of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. This is the ideal position for a creative, dynamic person looking to offer service within the FPMT mandala.

Responsibilities include:

Good Virtue applies bas relief sculptures to the dome of the stupa, May 2017.

We are so glad to have our amazing artist Good Virtue back at LMB! He is creating beautiful molds to go on the top Kadampa Stupa right now.

During the raining season, we were working with a landscape designer to create the stupa garden. Lama Zopa Rinpoche advised a Japanese-style garden in the area. Now that our artist is back, he overlaid a mandala design on the garden layout. We are looking forward to breaking ground on the gardens this summer. There will be opportunities to sponsor trees, benches etc. We will keep you updated.

We just received the okay from Rinpoche on a revised entrance to the shrine where the Buddha statue will be placed. While I was in Nepal, Good Virtue and I had a chance to order the pinnacle for the top of the Kadampa stupa and see a photo of the wax mold for our Buddha statue.
