Nipponzan Myohoji Temple

Be a volunteer for the temple construction!

at New England Peace Pagoda, Leverett, Massachusetts

Construction Update




An opportunity to participate in design and construction of the Temple at New England Peace Pagoda. The temple construction is taking a full momentum this summer.

This year, all the exterior windows have been installed we are now ready to install exterior finish system. Interior also needs a lot of work, ceiling/lighting, wall/floor finish, column/cove design/detail, etcetera.

If you are a  carpenter, mason, stucco/plaster applier or a landscaper, we need your skill. If you are an architect, engineer,  designer, CAD , you can help us design and engineer. In case you know how to cook, we need to feed all these volunteers from around the world. If you are a doctor or a nurse, teacher, student, artist, or anybody with any experience or no experience, you are all welcome.

In exchange for your labor, you will receive lodging, food and most of all, peace of mind. You don't have to be a Buddhist to build a temple for peace.
