The new Sierra Sanctuary is the crowning jewel at the Bright Dawn Center of Oneness
Buddhism. The five-acre wooded property, studded with visually stunning boulders,
is located eight miles south of the aptly named town of Coarsegold which is nestled
in the Sierra Nevada foothills, an hour's drive from the world famous Yosemite National
An opening Dedication Ceremony of the Sierra Sanctuary took place on March 28, 2015,
at 2:00 PM. The family was joined by special guests and Bright Dawn Lay Ministers
in honor of this historic inaugural event that continues to bring to life the late
Venerable Gyomay Kubose's pioneering vision of Buddhism in America.
