Helping the Children

The previous Kalu Rinpoche established the monastery in Sonada and also the Great Stupa and monastery in Salugara, India. Currently there are about 150 people there that include children monks and lamas, mostly young children.

I have setup a proper account in accordance with international law to insure transparency and accountability in the handling of donated funds. This account is specifically for the needs of the children and monks of Sonada and Salugara, their education, medical and daily living needs.

All donations will go directly to the needs of the children and monks of Sonada and Salugara. I will personally be in charge and oversee the distribution of these funds in accordance with their needs that include their education, and medical.

It is my hope that in the future these young children and monks can bring harmony and great benefit to humanity and the world at large. I am asking for your help in donations to make this a reality for the future of the dharma and the benefit of humanity.

Thank you for your support,

Kyabje Kalu Rinpoche
