EMBODYING ALTRUISM | EMPOWERING WOMEN

THE DORJEE ZONG NUNNERY

is a 700 year-old Tibetan Buddhist outpost in the high attitude Himalayan region of Zanskar, Northern India. The nuns who live in this humble monastery are entirely cut off from the outside world during the long winter months. They are famed for reaching advanced levels of meditative realization in this remote and difficult setting.

Our Service Project is undertaken in collaboration with the Tibetan Nuns Project, a registered charity founded in 1987 under the auspices of H. H. the Dalai Lama to support nuns in India from all Tibetan Buddhist lineages.

OUR SERVICE PROJECT

is a voluntary initiative led by students of the Contemplative Studies Program to raise USD $20,000 in support of the educational and medical needs of nineteen nuns living at the Dorjee Zong Nunnery.  Our group supports the preservation of Tibetan culture and is grateful to the Tibetan Buddhist lineage we are studying in the Contemplative Studies Program.

$15,000 Raised Towards Our $20,000 Goal

Thanks to CSP member support of Judy Akavi's Mala Project and Lisa Hyde's White Tara Tsa-Tsa Project, we have reached 75% of our goal. Their artistic creations have been generously donated so that 100% of proceeds can be given to the nuns. Only 8 malas and 19 White Tara tsa-tsa's remain.
