Donations

Dear Act 4 Tibet Sponsors,

Please, practice unconditional loving kindness and compassion.

~ Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche

A message to all the supporters of Act 4 Tibet from Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche.


About Mainpat

Mainpat India
Mainpat India

The Mainpat Tibetan Refugee Camp was established in 1962 by the Government of India in order to rehabilitate more than a thousand Tibetan refugees who fled from Tibet during the Chinese invasion of Tibet in 1959.

All the necessary arrangements such as temporary huts and ration supplies could not be made prior to the arrival of the settlers who faced a lot of initial hardships.

Lama Tulku Tsori Rinpoche has begun the construction of a large project which includes a Monastery, an orphanage, a school, a university and a hospital.

Mainpat was nothing more than a jungle where only a few local Indians dared to live. It was a beautiful landscape in a very isolated place.

Appropriate gifts

gifts2monksGiving small gifts is acceptable and greatly appreciated. The monks enjoy toys, books, clothing, shoes, school material, blankets, and personal items.

However, expensive gifts like DVD players, computers, play stations, expensive clothing, large amounts of money (over $100), complex electronic devices, cellular phones, etc. are not good gifts and should not be sent to the monastery. Any gift that might distract them from their studies and duties and monastic vows are inappropriate. Please be mindful of this as you prepare to send a gift. You may send small amounts of spending money, but it is best not to make it a habit as the monastery takes care of all their personal needs.

 

Meaning of Sponsorship

Your support of a monk is like dropping a stone in calm water. The ripple effect is exponential. Through your generosity a monk is able to enter and stay in the monastery. When you support a monk you not only create good karma for yourself but you now have support from a monk and a direct link with the community and the monastery. Think about it this way, you will have a part of you in the monastery.
