At this time of giving thanks, we wanted to extend our heartfelt gratitude to you, our donors, for supporting our mission to provide for Tibetan Buddhist female monastic communities in the Himalayas and elsewhere. We would also like to take this opportunity to provide an update on the nunneries and projects supported by Dongyu Gatsal Ling Initiatives.
While the pandemic continues to ebb and flow, our nunneries have fortunately been able to operate normally, providing a safe harbor for the nuns. They have been able to perform frequent prayer offerings for the world in general and those afflicted by Covid in particular. In some cases, the pujas and prayers were performed in response to prayer requests made by donors like you, connecting the nuns to the widespread suffering of humanity at this time.
With the majority of our donors contributing modest amounts on a regular basis, we are also thankful to have received large donations from individuals and foundations throughout the year. We are extremely grateful for your support, whatever the amount. Below we share some of the past year’s highlights at each nunnery/project.
