850 monks of Shar Gaden rely on help, donations, and support in these difficult times — a meritorious Dharma cause. The Covid-19 crisis has made fund-raising more difficult.
From the Gaden Relief website: “With the continued rise in COVID-19 illnesses and deaths in India, our help to the monastery became vital. We received appeal letters from the Shar Gaden clinic and the school. GRP was able to provide help for the clinic, and hopes to accumulate enough funds to help with meals for the boy monks, text books, blackboards, repair of the school building and leaking roof, and numerous other educational needs.”
Venerable Zasep Rinpoche, spiritual head of Gaden Relief, humbly requests any donations to help the monks of Shar Gaden — great merit for those who donate.
