Report from Drikung Kagyu Rinchen Ling Monastery:


We have now finished 100% of all the rebuilding and repair works related to structure, walls, pillars, including basic interior and exterior painting for the main temple building and the residence building for monks. Please see the nice pictures of the monastery after restoration. Some new prayers wheels are also sponsored and installed.


However, what is still left to be done is the major thangka repainting work on the entire internal wall of the main temple. So far this work is not sponsored by anyone. Your kind support is highly appreciated. Take a closer look at the walls insdie the main temple hall below.


The estimated cost given by thangka painters for the entire internal wall is 106, 107 USD (download cost statement).

The great accomplished master Milarepa once said:

When a skillful mediator meditating in the wilderness,

And the skillful benefactor providing the wherewithal come together,

This connection leads both to Buddhahood.

What gives this link its meaning is the dedication of merits’’

May all be auspicious. OM MANI PADME HUNG.
