Our Butter Lamp Campaign continues as we move forward in our aspiration to raise the funds for the rebuilding of the Shedra. The demolition of the destroyed shedra is complete. The children who were initially housed in temporary classrooms and tents to continue their studies now have warm housing for the winter.

We invite you to help us in this effort by reaching out to your friends and family. Gifts can be offered in honor of birthdays, special occasions and loved ones. Consider a butter lamp donation as part of your holiday giving as an expression of the wish that all beings have happiness. Help us to expand our circle of caring connection, providing benefit and loving kindness to all.

We extend our deepest thanks to the generous donors who helped kick off our International Butter Lamp Campaign. Your gifts move us closer to our goal of rebuilding, and your lamps provided a wall of light and blessings at Kilung Monastery for the celebration of Guru Rinpoche’s birthday on August 13, 2016. Each flame carried the name and prayers of its donor, and collectively they spoke of our shared intention to light the way for a new center of learning, study and community.

The new school, shedra and temple, estimated to cost $750,000, will not only replace classrooms and dormitories essential for education, but it will also provide space for new activities and services like education for girls, visiting medical care, and community gatherings.

 

 

 

Initial fundraising efforts have already raised a third of the funds needed to build the new design and we give thanks for the many donations already received from around the world.
