The Story

Dear Precious Loving Ones,

As you know, Nepal has been struck by a devastating 7.8 earthquake. Now, many organizations and individuals are helping the earthquake relief efforts in Nepal, but there is still a great shortage of aid because more than eight million people are affected. More than three million people are suffering from a shortage of food, medicine, clothes, and accommodations. More than 10,000 have been seriously injured and there are not enough medical facilities to help them. 7,200 people have died. This number may increase still. Our temple and the monks’ living quarters have also been damaged, and some of our monks have been injured.

A lot of Nepali villages were struck so severely that not even a single house remains standing. Many of these villages are not accessible by vehicles. Rescue or aid has not reached a lot of these remote areas. Now the weather is very bad, and there will be a lot of rain or snow in the next coming weeks and months. Many people are suffering and crying for help.

Therefore, Geydak Rinpoche and our Sangha are compassionately already in Nepal helping these affected people. We so rejoice in what they are doing. Now we want to raise money to support this aid project in Nepal. Everyone, please support this loving compassionate act.

Of course we cannot support everyone, but we can support our part. It makes a big difference. Right now, we plan to bring tents, food, and medicine to those areas in greatest need. We also plan to help repair some historical holy sites that have been damaged or destroyed. If anyone would like to compassionately help this aid project, it is greatly appreciated. We will use 100% of whatever donations we receive to directly support this project and nothing else. Still there are many very strong aftershocks, which are making more fear and chaos. Please pray for the people of Nepal and all beings.

Update on our virtuous activities:


Today, Rinpoche with Lama and some volunteers go more than 80 miles from our Dharma College to the remote mountainous areas for disaster relief. They traveled bumpy and winding mountain roads which lasted several hours and came to a village where all the houses collapsed after the earthquake. No one was left. There were cattle and sheep carcasses and many things still buried in the rubble that have not been dug out. The victims have not received any assistance yet. Rinpoche and the lamas were among the first disaster relief personnel.

Rinpoche sent rice, bottled water and other food. He sat eating cookies and drinking water and said: "seeing people suffering and then when I see people smile after, what I feel inside, words cannot express. ”

No words are necessary! Rinpoche, thanks to you!
