"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 400 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 used to support the monks, young and old, who study and live in Tashi Lhunpo, benefitting the whole community.
