Hanuman’s spirit has inspired living Earth since the beginning. Renowned world-wide as an embodiment of devotion, boundless compassion, and selfless service, his story is woven into the epic Ramayana. And suddenly, this amazing 3-foot-tall, 85-pound monkey-hero needs a home!
We want to welcome him to live in Portland, available to everyone who passes by to sit, rest, pray, meditate, or just to be in his presence, offer flowers, and hang out.
A little bit of help from many loving hearts can make this happen. Please give happily – $10 or $100 or $1,000, any amount that brings you joy to give, to help to bring this amazing being to Portland.
We need to raise $1500 by September 30 to bring him here and welcome him. Our next phase will be to create a shelter so folks can sit with him even in the Portland rains.
This Hanuman presided over the last retreat that Ram Dass offered at Breitenbush Hot Springs, and he may eventually be invited to preside over a new dharma hall in the forest there. But that is at minimum a four or five years down the road, and this Monkey-hero needs a home now. And Portland can use all the blessings he can offer us!
Help Hanuman come home!
A list of Hanuman’s supporters will be created for his shelter. We know Portland would be a fantastic place for him, and his presence would be a fantastic boon for Portland.
