RUSSIA TEACHING TOUR – Tsunma Tenzin Dasel and Tsunma Tenzin Yanki
Thank you to ANHN for sponsoring support for this Dharma teaching tour to 3 cities in Russia in December 2017-Januray 2018. Two nuns, an American and Russian, were able to visit remote regions of the Ural Mountain range to hold Dharma talks and meditation retreat weekends in Ekaterinburg, Nizhniy Tagil and Chelyabinsk. We were able to give talks and guide retreats for more than 100 people over the course of a month. Funding from ANHN covered transportation and VISA costs, without which this tour would not have been possible. The Russian people were extremely grateful for our visit, and we wish to express gratitude to ANHN for making this all happen.
ANHN Grant Testimonial – Tenzin Lhadzom
I am extremely grateful to the Alliance for offering me a grant which funded my trip back to the US for my Indian student visa. As I was required to apply for my new visa from my home country, I had no other choice than to make the trip which was financially outside of what I could afford at that time. Thanks to the Alliance, I was able to successfully obtain my new visa which enabled me to continue my Tibetan language courses at the Tibetan Library of Works and Archives in Dharamsala. These studies will serve as the foundation of my future Buddhist philosophy and monastic studies here in Dharamsala and will enable me to follow through on the advice I received from my Lama for my Dharma practice.
From my heart, THANK YOU to the Alliance for believing in us non-Himalayan nuns! Knowing that ANHN is here for us gives us a sense of safety, support and community that otherwise wouldn’t exist.
