Yung Kyung Monastery
Actually, it's nice to circulate the informal email that I 'd typed straight-from-the-heart abt our travels and some news in Dhasa but if that is too 'playful', you may wish to circulate this more 'formal' version to Buddhist frens for Yung Kyung Monastery. The Monastery serves abt 600 families in a deep part of Amdo Tibet and the residents there live very traditionally -- strong kinship ties. They still use coal heater in the room and it's below freezing point in winter. And 'modernizing' Tibet is like many developing economies, loosing age old values for progress. Sadly, you can't do with one without the other but the two can't seem to go together !
I think most countries try their level best to balance the two and have to waver to one side.
I wd like to help them to build the monastery since the younger Tibetans are already loosing their interest in Buddhism because it can't 'feed' them and they are already quite poor, materially [food wise and other basics, of coz, no problem....but they keep their heads high and that we have to respect.] SO I feel supporting the monastery's as a traditional structure maybe able to preserve some sense of beauty and pride in young Tibetans? Dunno...
All the best,

Naga Puja with Akung Choktrul Rinpoche
Vajrakilaya Retreat with Tse Zang Rinpoche
HI BB, I was asked by my friend to circulate this email for the program of Akung Tulku in November 2005. Could you help to send this to your friends on the mailing list as we would like more people to know about it? Thank you.
I previously sent you another program, a Vajrakilaya retreat by Tsezang Rinpoche, i wonder if you have seen that and whether it'd be possible for you to help me circulate that as well, thank you.
