Jamyang Choling Nunnery:- We were asked by HH Dalai Lama to assist this Nunnery which studies a combination of all Sects of Tibetan Buddhism. They endeavour to be self supporting, growing their own vegetables etc but help is needed.
In 2015 TFG is still voluntary, non political, and uniquely among aid organisations, is still sending ALL donated money to the designated Tibetan or centre; with expenses covered by separate fund raising.
All this from that first meeting in 1968 of Valerie Grogan with Mrs Freda Bedi, at the Rumtek Monastery Sikkim, and the work Valerie put into founding the Tibetan Friendship Group in Australia.But now what is our future ? The need is still there – the future depends on you, our sponsors and supporters!!! br>
Like the Tibetan story of the elephant, the rabbit, the monkey and the bird, who although so different, by helping each other, they created goodness and prosperity wherever they travelled.
