Capping a decade-long effort, plans are now underway to complete and launch the shedra—monastic college—over the coming summer and fall at Surmang Dutsi Til monastery in eastern Tibet.
Once again, the Pema Chödrön Foundation has stepped forward to help Surmang. In combination with two anonymous donors, they have generously given $147,000 and challenged the sangha by offering to match 1:1 donations toward the 2018 fundraising campaign.
The Matching Grant Campaign is designed to:
• support the growth of the Surmang nunnery
• prepare for the Shedra consecration this summer
