I would like to specify about this event. First off During the communist invasion this very ancient and blessed monastery was destroyed. They spent many years, and dedicated their whole life and funds to rebuild it. 30 Lamas are dead. This is the monastery of three of my teachers. My lama still does not know about his brother who teaches there, and his parents in the area. All together in this earthquake which I read was a 7.1 617 people have died 10 000 injured. I am not sure about the rules for asking for donations on this site. However if there is something against it they can take the link down.

Please pray, or offer any help that you can! Thanks!!!

This is so tragic. They are in my prayers.

What awful news.

If you can, send a few dollars/pounds/whatever on Paypal. It'll only take a few minutes.
