Earthquake in China
« on: April 14, 2010, 06:16:15 am »
Thrangu Rinpoche Monastery in Yushu is badly affected. Certain parts of the monastery collapsed and about 15 people including monks perished.  The Dalai Lama said
"I am deeply saddened by the loss of life and property in the earthquake that struck Kyigudo (Chinese - Yushu) today. We pray for those who have lost their lives, the injured and their families. Special prayers are being said here at Dharamsala on their behalf. It is my hope that all possible assistance and relief will ...reach these people. I am also exploring how I, too, can contribute to these efforts"

Shouldn't the title of the thread be "earthquake in Tibet?"

For all interested parties the 16th Karmapa Thaye Thinley has requested a million mani accumulation for the victims.  If anybody would like to take part please send me a tally of your mani mantra accumulations and I will register them with my dharma centre here in Greece.

I have been donating money every 2 weeks with my paychecks. If anyone else wants to donate a little, please visit http://www.thranguemergency.org/ and go to the bottom of the page. Let's help those hurt and the families devastated by rebuilding such a beautiful monastery!
