Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo has been asked to help 75 nuns in Tibet who are in dire need. These nuns have engaged in intense practice for many years up in the mountains with their spiritual master. On his death they returned to their Nunnery to find it taken over by villagers, and so they found themselves destitute.
Already DGL has supported their Dharma sisters over the last winter with money for temporary shelter, food and clothing. Now the nuns have been given some land near a Monastery and, with money left from the original DGL donation, have started building simple dwellings of rammed earth and wood (see photos below).
Further information on this Nunnery can be obtained by writing a letter (not by email) to Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo:
