Maitreya, the Buddha of Loving-Kindness

Maitreya is the Buddha of Loving-Kindness, the future Buddha who watches over all beings now and in times to come. By naming the Society for Maitreya, whose name comes from Metta, or Love, the members join in watching over the future wellbeing of Houston Zen Center, also known as Auspicious Cloud Temple, enabling it to welcome seekers for many years to come. Please download and fill in the Letter of Intent and send it to HZC so you will be enrolled in the Maitreya Society list of generous friends.

We gratefully acknowledge those helping to ensure our sustainability for future generations of way-seekers by including Houston Zen Center in their estate plans. For a list of Society members who have made pledges to date, select here.

PLANNED GIVING
Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to leave a legacy for Houston Zen Center. Your planned gift can be tailored to your financial and estate planning goals and will provide lasting support for making the dharma available for generations to come. You can designate it with a specific purpose in mind or leave it unrestricted so Zen Center can apply it toward the areas of greatest need.
