Words have the power to both destroy and heal. When words are both true and kind, they can change our world. BUDDHA
Last week I attended workshop in investigative journalism in Pokhara. Travel has always been my passion so despite my busy schedule I made unplanned trip to eastern part of Nepal. The places I visited include Pokhara, Palpa, Bhairawa and Lumbini. Though the trip is short it energizes me to the fullest.
Pokhara is one of my favorite place . I have visited numerous time. This time I fulfill my dream by visiting Pema Ts’al Sakya Monastic Institute in Pokhara. This is a unique and beautiful place, situated on a quiet hilltop near Nepal’s famous Fewa Lake and in front of the Fishtail Mountain. This monastic institute provides a comprehensive educational program for all our young monks that has been fully sanctioned by the Nepali government where they are educated in Tibetan, English, Nepali, Science, Social Studies and Maths.
There are several ways that a person can HELP monastery. You can sponsor a Pema Ts’al Monk for only 35 USD/month (420 USD/year). As a sponsor of child, your student will write to you several times throughout the year and the monastery will send email correspondence updating you not only on the progress of your child, but life at the institute as well.
I lit lamp praying for happiness and peace of all sentient beings . I will update other place visit in my next blog.
