Tashi Lhunpo Monastery


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, whether one-off donations, or regular payments (including those for sponsored monks), 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 amount however large or small, is welcome.  Some people like to give a one-off donation on the Dalai Lama’s or Panchen Lama’s birthday, for example, or to ask for a relative who is sick or in difficult circumstances to be remembered, and you can do this through our regular General Donation form here.  If you are a UK Taxpayer we can claim Gift Aid on your donation, which makes it more valuable to the monastery.

Some donors like to personalise their donation by regularly sponsoring a particular monk and we suggest a donation of £15 a month or more, although any amount you can afford will be welcome. 

If you would like to set up a sponsorship for Tenzin Palsang (1065) please click here, please email us on [email protected] or send a message through the website.  Further biographical details for the monks can be sent, and we can provide details of other monks in the monastery for you to choose instead, so please let us know if you have any preference for a young monk, a senior student or an elderly monk in your email, or if you are happy for the monastery to make a selection for you.

You will receive newsletters twice a year, as well as greetings and thank you cards from the monastery at Christmas. You are welcome to contact your sponsored monk either through the office in India or through the UK Trust, but sadly we cannot promise a regular correspondence from him, mainly because of the difficulty in language and also because of the pressure of his studies or duties in the monastery.  Your sponsored monk will, however, know of your support, and will regularly be including you in his daily prayers.

Thank you for your help.
