Following the Chinese occupation of Tibet, many monks and nuns were forced to flee to India and Nepal in order to continue their spiritual path.
Dolma, Tsewang, Bumchung and 35 other nuns joined their teacher, Lama Wangdor, in the hermitage of Padmasambhava Cave in Tso Pema. Here they still live in small shacks, where they devote themselves to studying Dharma, meditating and reciting mantras.
Since 2019, the year in which Lama Wangdor died, the living conditions of the nuns have become harsher. Their only source of livelihood are the offerings they receive from pilgrims visiting the Sacred Cave and the proceeds from the sale of butter lamps. They have no running water but only electricity and to wash and cook they collect rainwater while for drinking water they have to go to the villages at the foot of the hill.
WITH THE LONG-DISTANCE SPONSORSHIP , WE WANT TO GIVE LONG-TERM AND CONTINUOUS HELP TO THE NUNS OF THE HERMITAGE, WHO PROTECT A ‘HIDDEN TREASURE’: THE CULTURAL AND SPIRITUAL HERITAGE OF TIBET. DOLMA, TSEWANG, BUMCHUNG AND MANY MORE ARE WAITING FOR YOU!
