It does not take as much as people suppose to raise a Tibetan structure. You can do it if you have a plentiful supply of stones, gravel, dirt, a few timbers, and some tamarisk branches. You can do it on less than one acre of ground. Most of the various Tibetan "centers" in the United States sit around and agonize about building a temple, dealing with zoning laws, raising funds, etc. However, they fail to consider that the Tibetan people regularly overcome even greater obstacles and raise temples from bare ground by the simple power of devotion to the Dharma.
