  White Tara Puja
 
  Hosted by Friends of Drepung Loseling Monastery

  *Via Zoom
   
  Friends of Drepung Loseling Monastery is excited to announce a fundraiser to sponsor a White Tara Puja in honor of our teachers to benefit Drepung Loseling Monastery.
   
  We have set a goal of $3,000 to benefit Drepung Loseling Monastery. The puja will honor our three main teachers at the center: Geshe Lobsang Tenzin, Geshe Dadul Namgyal, and Geshe Ngawang Phende.
 
White Tara is specifically a longevity practice that will help students maintain a long-term connection to their teachers in this and future lives. The puja will be one of the last performances of the monks on the Mystical Arts of Tibet tour. 100% of the funds raised for this event will go to Drepung Loseling Monastery to ensure its financial viability throughout the pandemic and for many years to come. Please consider donating generously. Any amount in excess of the $3,000 will be included in the donation to DLM.
 
 
Update Announcement
 
Thank you to all who have donated so far. We have an update announcement regarding the fundraiser. Some of you may know that unfortunately, COVID-19 has affected the monastery in South India. A number of monks have tested positive for the coronavirus. As such, there have been unexpected costs for the monastery. The resident teachers (Geshes Lobsang, Dadul, and Phende, respectively) have requested that we send all donations to the monastery in India to help our teachers and spiritual brothers there. We are thrilled that the funds raised so far can be utilized in such a way at such a critical time. However, we want to let those who have donated know this in advance and have the opportunity, if they so wish, to specify their portion of the funds only be used for the center in Atlanta as this was the original intent of the fundraiser. If you would like the funds to go to COVID relief at the monastery in India, then you do not need to do anything further. If for any reason, you would like your portion of the funds to go specifically to the center in Atlanta, please let us know privately so that we can specify that the funds be used in that way. Thank you!
 
White Tara Puja for our teachers to benefit DLM
 

The White Tara Puja will be broadcast on Zoom webinar. Information is below. The 3 teachers will be panelists so everyone can see them during the puja. We would also like to donate the merits of this puja to the speedy recovery of the affected monks at Drepung Loseling Monastery in India. Please keep them in your hearts and prayers in the weeks to come. Please let us know if you have any further questions. Thank you!
