Nepal Earthquake Relief

Message from H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya:
“I pray for the swift rebirth of all those who lost their lives in the recent devastating earthquake which hit Nepal and parts of neighboring India and Tibet. Also, my condolences and prayers go out to all the people who have suffered much pain and loss in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy. In their moment of suffering, it is our duty to reach out a helping hand to them and so I urge and encourage everyone to donate generously of your time, prayers and financial resources to alleviate the sufferings of these people. Thank you.”

You have no doubt heard of the terrible earthquake that has devastated much of Nepal. There are many who wish to help those who are suffering, so to ensure that donations go directly to those most in need we are asking people to donate to Sakya Monastery of Tibetan Buddhism. Funds collected by the Monastery will go directly to the Sakya Earthquake Relief Fund for Nepal.

This relief effort has been set up by His Holiness Sakya Trizin Rinpoche, H.H. Jigdal Dagchen Sakya, the Dolma Phodrang and Phuntsok Phodrang, the Sakya monks, as well as Sakya Monasteries and centers. All the Sakya Monasteries and monks in Nepal were fortunate enough to sustain little damage or injury. Therefore, it was decided to give all donations to the people of Nepal who have suffered the most from this earthquake, especially those in remote areas.

Relief work is already underway and is being led by Sakya monks in Nepal. Your donation will help support this continued and direct relief action!
