Appeal for Namdroling Monastery Hepatitis B Fund from Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche
Dear Sangha and Friends,
We have received a message that more than 140 monks at Namdroling Monastery in Mysore, India are suffering from a dangerous form of hepatitis. They are in dire need of medicine to treat the disease. One of our western sangha members is now living at the monastery and was requested by Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche to outreach to the western community and help fund-raise.
As many of you know, Khenchen Namdrol Rinpoche, together with Khenchen Pema Sherab Rinpoche and Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche, established and direct the activities of the Ngagyur Nyingma Institute and other activities at Namdroling. Khen Rinpoche has placed the highest personal priority on treating the infected monks and nuns and thus stopping the spread of the disease in the community. Hepatitis has already claimed the life of Khenpo Namdrol’s brother, Kunzang Lama Rinpoche; and Khenpo Dorje, another important teacher and close friend.
Orgyen Dorje Den has agreed to receive and forward donations to Khen Rinpoche’s effort. 100% of all donations will go solely toward the purchase of the needed medicines. If you would like to make a donation towards this important effort, you may send a check to:
