Vision of the White Horse Mountain
First of all, I, Xing De, the abbot representing White Horse Mountain Five Immortals Temple, would like to express my utmost gratitude for your paying attention and supporting of benevolence and compassion. White Horse Mountain Five Immortal Temple is located on White Horse Mountain, Bai Lin Village, Zhang Wan District, Shi Yan City, Hu Bei Province, China. Heavenly Horse Peak rises up to 1049 meters above sea level and is one of 72 peaks of Wu Dang Mountain. Due to it is remoteness ,the difficulty of transporting building materials , the limited funds of Five Immortal Temple as well as other factors, all resulted in the entire building project not being completed to date. I have been arduously building here for 18 years during which I lived frugally, making bricks and tiles in a kiln by myself and it is still not enough to fulfill my aspiration of completing the temple’s construction. But now I am advanced in years and only depend on my own efforts .I feel that my ability does not equal my ambition. For the project to be finished at an earlier date, I I would like to ask you at this point to publish this donation notice around the world and I guarantee that every single dollar of each benevolent donation will be put towards the building project of the temple as you earnestly hoped. We will finalize the building designs and calculate the budget for the workers’ salary, the material cost and transport costs in advance. We will by means of pictures and videos promptly announce the project’s progress, the names of the benefactors, their contributions, as well as provide our contact details for your information.

IN RETURN FOR DONATIONS:
• Less than 10 000 Yuan, we will at the night of full moon of each month send petitions to heaven on behalf of the benefactors, one time for each (In the center of the petition the benefactor’s name will be written, as well as their contribution), this ceremony will provide blessings for the benefactor, expel disaster and protect and prolong life. After the ceremony has been concluded, we will promptly send pictures of the ceremony to everybody for viewing and reference.
• More than 10 000 Yuan, we will engrave the benefactor’s name on a stone tablet to be displayed in the Five Immortals Temple
• More than 100 000 Yuan, besides delivering petitions to the heavens and engraving your name, the temple would like to as expression of our appreciation issue an invitation letter, welcoming the benevolent benefactor to stay at the temple for 30 days in the year of their donation. The 30 day stay can be chosen freely, during which lodging and accommodation are for free. This will enable the benefactor to regulate his/her body, understand and study Chinese Daoist Culture and go sightseeing.
I, Daoist Xing De, hereby, announce.
