You are very lucky girls because you have the Dharma at the centre of your life.

You have the Dharma at the centre of your activities, so please put it also at the centre of your heart.

Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo to the Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nuns

The nuns’ basic needs such as food, clothing, utilities, medicine and educational materials are met by the Nunnery. In this way, the nuns are able to focus on their spiritual practice and keep the Dharma at the centre of their daily activities.

DGL depends on the kindness of sponsors to make this possible, and we invite you to become involved.

The Nuns are expected to live as simply as possible. Donating US$1 per day (US$365 a year) helps to cover the living expenses for a year of one of the nuns currently living and studying at Dongyu Gatsal Ling Nunnery.

Sponsors are connected to an individual nun and sent a personal letter from her, along with her photograph and background information about her life. The nuns appreciate receiving letters from their sponsors and enjoy writing in reply. They also write to their sponsors at Tibetan New Year (Losar).

To ensure parity however, monies received goes into a common fund from which the requirements of all nuns are provided for.
