Projects and Amounts

  • Lama Norlha Drupchen (Guru Rinpoche of wealth) with OT Rinpoche – To host this practice we very much need your support. The costs are considerable, especially the international air fares and visas required for such a large group, Additionally, we will be making abundant offerings of tsok, flowers, lights and tormas, throughout the practice, and offering the lamas and monks the best hospitality we can provide.

    By making a donation, we establish an unbreakable karmic bond to the practices and therefore share in their tremendous benefit and merit. Thank you so much for your donation.

Most important areas where we need your support

  • Following the advice of our masters, Lerab Ling has started to do all the preliminary work for building the Great Enlightenment Stupa of Awakening. It is dedicated to all living beings, that they may awaken to their true inner nature and discover the lasting peace and happiness that is beyond all suffering. The stupa will contain the relics of many great lineage masters as well as Sogyal Rinpoche and Mayum Tsering Wangmo.

  • Lerab Ling is home to a thriving community of monastic practitioners who observe a daily schedule of prayer and meditation, following one of the most ancient lineages of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition (the Nyingma school). It is a time-honoured tradition in Buddhism to make offerings to the ordained spiritual community (Sangha). According to the teachings of the Buddha himself, this is an especially meaningful way to practice generosity and accumulate merit.

  • Your contribution will support and strengthen the specialised team of practice holders in Lerab Ling. In Rigpa we uphold the full range of practices such as Longchen Nyingtik Rigdzin Dupa, Yumka Dechen Gyalmo, Duk Ngal Rangdrol, Lerab Lingpa's termas Tendrel Nyesel, Yang Nying Pudri as well as Chime Pakme Nyingtik (Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo's terma), and Zabtik Drolchok (from the Chokling tradition). We wish to train more practitioners in Lerab Ling to develop and offer a thorough Vajrayana practice curriculum and training, and provide more streaming possibilities and material support to the world-wide sangha.
