DONATION (MERITS)

Closing in ALL of our practices and meditations – the dedication of merit forms, together with setting the intention, are the anchors of the practice.
In doing this, we effectively reinforce our vow to serve ALL beings until the end of time and affirm to ourselves that we can literally transform ourselves into perfect, awakened beings.
Here we set the intention sharing ALL the positive momentum we have created by doing this practice with ALL beings in every corner of the universe:
 

DEDICATION OF MERIT
GAYWA DI YI NYUR TU DAK.
TARA DRUB GYUR NAY.
DRO WA CHIK KYANG MA LU PA.
TAY YI SA LA GOAD PAR SHO.
GAY WA DI YI GYE WO GUEUN.
SONAM YESHE TSOK TSOK NAY.
SONAM YESHE LAY DJOUNG WAY.
TAM PA KU NYI TOB PAR SHOK.

BY THIS VIRTUE, MAY I QUICKLY ATTAIN THE STAGE OF ENLIGHTENED ONE
AND MAY I THEN QUICKLY PLACE UPON HER STAGE ALL BEINGS WITHOUT EXCEPTION.

The heart of Hot Springs, North Carolina, is our 63 acres of land with 8 beautiful waterfalls, right next to a 100 acres secluded state park on Meadow Fork Drive.

Hot Springs, Asheville located in the mountains of Western North Carolina, and cuddled along the banks of Spring Creek and the French Broad River, is a town rich in history and beaming with natural charm, this town serves as an intersection along the historic Appalachian Trail and is part of the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

A natural hot spring is also located here, the only such spring known in North Carolina and in much of the southeastern United States. Thus, this area has long since been a destination for those looking for therapeutic relief from their ailments. Native Americans were the first to discover the 100+ degree mineral waters, and European immigrants settled the area over 200 years ago. It is reported that people were visiting the springs by 1778 for the waters’ reported healing properties

Our Dedication is to utilize Donations collected to this project is to

1.  Build an auspicious Stupa and a Temple at the highest point of this piece of land.
2.  A Healing and Therapeutic Retreat Center and Resort
3.  A School that will house ALL Healing Modalities

Notably known as the second Nalanda University in Tibet, Drepung Gomang Monastic University is one of the most reputed centers (the three great seats: Drepung, Gaden and Sera) for learning, contemplating and practicing Tibetan Buddhism. The creation of Nalanda is prophesied in Langsheg Sutra by Lord Buddha, when Nagaraja Madhopa pledged Lord Buddha with a white conch, Lord Buddha handed it over to Maugalayana, one of his two closest attendants who possessed transcendental miracle-power, with blessed and instructive decree to take it to Gogpa Ri (Garlic Hill) at Gaden in Tibet and hide it there in the hill. It adds that in the future the Bhiksu of Lotus-purity in nature would unearth it and it would thereafter be used as Tsogdhung, to be blown as the signaling medium for gathering to spiritual congregation……

Drepung Gomang Monastery has been able to send small entourage of monks to the United States and Russia to host a Sand Mandala Tour since 1999. Contributions made to the monks during the tour help to clothe, feed, and house over 2000 Tibetan Monks.

Monk’s Food Foundation Project

The goal of Drepung Gomang Food Foundation is to ensure the proper nourishment of the monks at Drepung Gomang Monastery. All the food for the monks in the monastery is supplied from college communal kitchen. A breakfast, a slab of bread and a sugarless tea. Lunch consists of vegetable and bread, sometimes rice and dinner of rice or Tibetan noodles soup (Thukpa).  Presently there are 2000 monks living at the monastery. Each year approximately 150 new monks from Tibet, Mongolia, Tibetan Mongolia, Russia, and Nepal and Himalayan region of India such as Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh and also from Tibetan settlement in India join here to pursue traditional monastic studies.

Since the monastery is dedicated to the survival and continuance of the teachings of Buddha, no person is refused entrance into the monastery. However, many of these monks have no financial resource to support themselves. As a result, Gomang is faced with the ever-increasing problem of providing enough food for the monastery to ensure that everyone living there remains healthy.

The Food Foundation plans to guarantee that the monastery will have enough money in reserve so that even in times of financial drought or crises; there will always be food available. The plan is to raise enough money so that the food allowance will be paid by the interest generated by money deposited in the Food Foundation. This ensures that no matter what economic situation arises, there will always be supply of food for the monks.

Monthly community kitchen expenses is approximately Rs.9,00,000 to 11,00,000). We are thankful for any contribution given, large or small.

NGARI MONASTERY

NGARI 7      NGARI 9

Ngari Monastery is situated in Northern India.  The Abbott’s and the older monks’ dedication is preserve all of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition that they collected in Tibet.  The Monastery cultivates on both heart and intellect with all the compassion and wisdom.  The Monastery provides a sanctuary for the nurturance of inner peace and kindness to the children who joined the Monastery in monkhood.  In implementing this vision, Ngari Monastery needs Funding to rebuild its old structural temple, food supplies, school materials, and clothing for these little enlighten future beings.  Your kindness as donors, sponsors will go directly to Monk Jampa Tenzin at the Monastery.

The Fund has been able to improve the diet to the extent that all monks now receive daily tea and bread for breakfast; tea, bread and a vegetable dish for lunch; and a solid dinner in the evening. In addition, younger monks are provided with an egg each and also fresh fruit three times a week. This will increase the health and well being of these little monks’ body, heart and soul. Ten years ago tuberculosis, a disease rarely contracted in Tibet due to its high altitude, was the major cause of deaths at the monastery in India. Improved diets, food supplies and health care supplies will better monitor and treat TB cases. So this longer a life-threatening disease will not be that of their path so they can focus on receiving the dharma and manifesting these teachings of consciousness.

UGANDA ORPHANAGE

<VIDEO UGANDA>

ugan 22     ugan 27

ChakraSamvara extends ourselves with the generous Donations to help the children Orphanage in Uganda, Africa.

The widespread pandemic of HIV/AIDS coupled with the flood of refugee children from neighboring warring countries has left large numbers of children in Uganda orphaned, with no possibility of a future.  Whose parents died due to HIV/AIDS related diseases who have experienced many negative changes in their lives and suffered neglect which has led to a lot of impacts like emotional trauma and neglect. These unfortunate children live in rural areas with their host families, grandparents, or other relatives. These families are not well educated about the HIV/AIDS scourge. Therefore, there is great risk of contracting HIV/AIDS leading to higher death rates of parents hence large numbers of orphans. Some orphaned children walk long distances to attend school while others are supporting themselves along with their younger brothers and sisters.  Collectively, we fundraise and seek for donations so we can directly donate money to provide shelter, school, sustainable education, building aquaponic pond, and better health care to these orphans.
