Update on the Recent Campaign to Stave Off Hunger in the Area Around Tana Monastery in South India

Dear Sangha and friends,

As you probably remember, we recently received urgent pleas from the Tana Monastery in India about the disastrous circumstances of those living in the region surrounding the monastery (see note below). Now we want to update you and offer many thanks to all of you who donated to the fundraiser for food for people in that region of India.

We are very happy to report that the donation campaign was a great success! Tana Yelpa Foundation was able to provide over $20,00 dollars worth of food.  The Tana Foundation in India distributed the food. As a direct result of your kindness and the generous work of the Tana Foundation in India, people on the ground in India estimate that over 1,000 families each received kilos of rice and dahl, the mainstay foods for that region.

Tana Dungsey Rinpoche is the head of two convergent lineages, the Yelpa and Hungkara. The Yelpa lineage was established in the 12th century by a student of Phakmo Drupa (who was a student of Gampopa). The Hungkara lineage was established probably in the 8th century, by a student of Guru Rinpoche.

Teachings

Tana Dungsey Rinpoche continues to teach in many other parts of the world including Malaysia, Indonesia and India. Instructions and insight for Green Tara practices, Saga Dawa programs, are some of the recent topics he's taught.

Meditation and Mother Nature

A profound resonance with nature has always played a central role in Tibetan Buddhism. Tibetan masters have developed and encouraged many practices to enhance and deepen a student’s relationship with the five elements and Mother Earth. Making offerings to streams, mountains, springs and local spirits that dwell in natural settings is a daily part of practice for many Tibetans.  …
