Realized project

A roof for monks



The steps of construction

In a remote and isolated place where nature inspires peace, we helped monk Khenpo (guide) Tenzin Thinley find the funds to build a meditation hut for meditative retreats in Buddhist practice.
Thanks to the help of many friends, in the first five months of 2019 we found the sum (10,000 Chf, while another 5,000 were already available) that was used to build the wooden and stone structure in an isolated area of Bhutan (near Pangkha, Wangdue Phodrang district).
The monk organized the transportation of the material, followed the work. By November 2019, the cabin retreat was finished.

The monk Khenpo Tenzin Thinley

He studied Buddhism from the age of 7 when he entered the monastery. He finished his training in 1998: master in philosophy of Buddhism at the Ngagyur Nyingma Istitut (Mysore, India).
He taught for many years at Gangteng Shedra (the largest Nyingma academic center) in Wangdue, Bhutan, where he was also rector.
Khenpo Tenzin Thinley continues to teach monks and nuns, preferring the poorest monasteries, where he teaches for free.
