"I fully understand the difficulties and that the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery monks in South India are going through.  Therefore I ... welcome any assistance given to the Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India."

                                    H.H. the Dalai Lama

Patron of Tashi Lhunpo Monastery UK Trust

Tashi Lhunpo Monastery in South India was re-established in 1972 under the direction of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Now home to over 300 monks, the Monastery continues to work to preserve their unique culture in exile.  Each monk who chooses to join the Monastery family will be looked after for the rest of his life.

 Everything you give will be sent to the monastery to support the monks, young and old, who study and live in Tashi Lhunpo. 

Your donation will be used to support many different areas of the monastery including the Food Fund, the Clinic, the School, the Library and the Tantric College, and will benefit the whole community from the youngest to the oldest of our monks.  

Any donation, large or small, regular or one-off, is welcome and gratefully received.  An average monthly sponsorship is around £15 per month, paid either monthly by Standing Order or annually.  If you are a UK Taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donation, which makes it more valuable to the monastery.

Thank you for your help.
