A cry for help from afar!
Tana Monastery is now a home to 60 young monks, whose ages range from 5 to 17. There they receive food, clothing and shelter, in order to study the Buddhist doctrine. These young monks come from extreme poverty, where their parents can hardly afford to provide shelter and food for them. Their existence depend fully on donations as Tana Monastery is situated in a very remote wild life restricted hilly area in Karnataka State, Kollegal Taluk, South India, about 5 to 6 hours of very rough car or bus ride from the International Airport of Bengulru, with frequent water and electricity restrictions. In late 2010, the Abbott of Tana Monastery, Tulku Pema Rinpoche had to leave for Sherabling Palpung Retreat Centre in Himachal Pradesh, North India to undertake a mandatory retreat of 3 years, 3 months and 3 days, hence the difficulty of getting sufficient funds for the young monks, whose subsistence has become acute. The Monastery needs your help to assist in the young monks’ subsistence and it is hoped that you can help in this fund raising to make a positive difference in the lives of these young monks and make for a better future and place for our children, grand children, great- grand children to live in. Rinpoche apologises for not being able to attend this charity as he is currently still in retreat in India.
