Tibetan Nuns Project Launches Urgent Water Appeal for Dolma Ling Nunnery
The Tibetan Nuns Project, a US-registered charity based in Seattle and in the Kangra District of Himachal Pradesh, India, has announced an appeal to fund the urgently need improvements to the water supply of the Buddhist nuns of Dolma Ling Nunnery and Institute, in order to ensure that they have adequate access to unpolluted water.
“Water is life, but in recent years there’s been a growing scarcity of water reaching the Dolma Ling campus,” The Tibetan Nuns Project shared with BDG. “The nuns had been asking for a reliable, safe supply of water for years. Currently, the amount and quality of the water are very poor and the situation is becoming very difficult to manage. It also strains the relationship of the nunnery with the local people.” (Tibetan Nuns Project)
Inaugurated by His Holiness the Dalai Lama in 2005, Dolma Ling Nunnery and Institute of Buddhist Dialectics is located in Kangra Valley near Dharamsala in northern India. The nunnery was the first institute dedicated to higher Buddhist education for Tibetan Buddhist nuns from all traditions, and is fully funded by the Tibetan Nuns Project (TNP).
