Sustainable Solution for the monasteries
and the monks of Limi
The three villages of Limi
have three monasteries. Weltse
Rinchen Ling was fount in 10th century and Til
Kunzom Dongag Choe Ling and Zang
Philgye Ling were established around 12th century. These monasteries
serve as centres of religion, culture and education for the people
of Limi. Today, the undamaged monasteries and their historical,
sacred objects have so much to contribute to the exiting Tibetan
here to view some treasures of the monasteries.
To maintain the historicdal
monasteries, there are a lot of renovation work to be done externally
and internally. Also, the monasteries don't have enough rooms
for the monks to live in their monastery.
Kailashzone Charitable Foundation
has been keeping close contact with the monks and working with
the monks how the monasteries can be renovated and enlarged.
To start off the project, Kailashzone is asking openly for professional
guidance on how the best way to the monasteries could be maintained
and also requesting for fundings for the project. The proverty
in the region and in the country of Nepal can almost do nothing
without caring people's donations and aids.
If you are interested in
helping the project, please send Kailashzone an email and tell
us what you can do to help.
The monks of Limi
Because the monasteries
of Limi haven't been able to establish proper monastic communities,
there is no monk who can teach younger monks in Buddhist philosophical
teachings. Therefore, many of the young monks from Limi, such
as Konchok Pasang, Konchok Gyatso and many others, had to go to India to get Buddhist
Under the rules of the monasteries,
these young monks' households have not only to cover the monastic
expenses, but must also pay a penalty for not sending monks to
their local monastery to help in the ritual events that the monks
perform to ensure the safety of the villages and the monasteries. Are
you interested in reading about the monastic ceremonies?
A solution to the monasteries' problems
Senge Tenzin Rinpoche, Kailashzone,
and the abbots of the Limi monasteries wishes to break the tie
between the monks and their households. Then the monks wouldn't
need to take part in their household affairs and would be able
to pursue their spiritual goal. To accomplish this, they need
to find alternative financial sources to maintain the traditional
monastic rituals and to finance the needs of the monks. Senge
Tenzin Rinpoche and the abbots of the monastery can guarantee
that this could easily be done with your financial help. Interesting
in helping the project, please send an email and tell us what
you can do help.
- The ultimate goal of Senge
Tenzin Rinpoche and the abbots of the monasteries is to establish
a proper monastic institution, where all young monks and young
lay people can be educated in Buddhist philosophy and the Tibetan
Currently, Many of monks from Limi are studying
Buddhist philosophy, Tibetan and English language. Once these
monks graduate, they will be qualified teachers.

Sponsorship for the Limi Monks
Who are on Three Year Retreat
monks to stay on meditation
retreat of Fivefold Paths of Mahamudra and Six Yogas of Naropa
is one of the most important practices of Drikung Kagyu Order
of Tibetan Buddhism.
In 2001, His Holiness the
Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang appointed Drubpon Konchok Osal, from
Ladhak, to be the retreat masters of the monks of Limi and offered
some financial support the five monks of Limi, who went on meditation
retreat for 3 years from 2002 to 2005.
The traditional practice
of three year retreat will be continued by more and more monks
from Limi. The monks need financial help to built retreat accommodations
and to sponsor them while they practice meditation for the benefit
of all sentient beings.
Interested in sponsoring

monasteries of Limi to carry out the project. You would be able
