Dear Friend,
Thank you very much for pledging your support to the Retreat Monks -
How to send your offering
You may send your crossed check to the
"Charitable Assistance Society" at
Blk 719, Jurong West Ave 5, #01-66, Singapore 640719
Please indicate at the back of the check that it is for the "Retreat Monks" -
How your sponsorship works
Your sponsorship will be used to acquire mainly food / medical supplies or any other required items - 
We will send the check to one of the Teacher's [ Ven Tenzin Choesang (A) ] from Namgyal Monastery - 
HH the Dalai Lama's personal monastery in Dharamsala -  
Ven Choesang will send acknowledgement letter stating name / amount offered and date received to you via CAS -
CAS will send receipt to you upon receiving your offering [ please include return address with your check !! ] -
Ven Choesang will liase with the Retreat Master to send food or medical supplies regularly up the mountains high up behind the main tibetan settelment with help of indian porters as there are no roads up the mountains - 
In fact, tigers or leopards are not infrequent visitors to the retreat monks especially at night during winter !!   
I am attaching some photos for you through a few emails as the files are huge* -
* to the large files, bb will not sending here via CASonline.....
interested friends please email bb at CAS and you receive them via a few emails
Please choose one [ or even both !! ] of the ways you will want to sponsor:
On a "permanent" basis [ as long as you are able to !! ]:
By "adopting" one or more Retreat Monks for
S$30/- per month .... totaling to S$360/- a year -
On a "one-time" basis [ whenever you are able to !! ]:
Any amount will be helpful -
The holy monks
As they are in virtual isolation from everyone else - connected only via their infinite wishes and blessings to our world !! - hardly anyone is aware of their needs or even of their presence !!
Your offering is extremely valuable to these 17 Retreat Monks who have committed to stay in retreat till Enlightenment...... amidst highly inaccessible terrain, requirement of the most basic dietary support [ plain rice as main course ] -
It is extremely meritorious and a deep honour to be of assistance no matter the amount to be connected to these serious and sincere practitioners -
CAS will want to thank you with all our hearts for your support --
Holy, Mother Tara bless ...........
"Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha ...... !!"
