Venerable Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche

General donations and sponsorship are urgently needed to support the 548 monks of Thrangu Monastery in Nepal and India. The rising cost of food, fuel, clothing and medicine alone present quite a challenge to the budget, but recent medical and hospital bills for the monks have made the situation critical. Current funding is just not enough to cover the expense. Many monks are not sponsored and most of the more than 200 young monks in school in Nepal and India have no sponsor.

Please consider either a full or partial sponsorship of a monk or making a general donation for the support of the monastery. It will be greatly appreciated!
