The holiday season inspires us to remember the things for which we are truly grateful, and to practice generosity out of loving kindness and compassion for others. Today we are urging you to make a long-lasting difference in the lives of Tibetan nomads in Ayang Rinpoche's birthplace area. 

In 2004 Rinpoche asked members of the Amitabha Foundation to try to find out why so many women were dying in childbirth. Since then, we have made strides in reducing maternal and infant mortality by sponsoring a clinic, doctors and a midwife, and training families in using clean birthing kits for safe home childbirth. Your donation today will help repair the clinic roof and keep salaries paid and medicines and clean birthing kits purchased for 2016. Please, can you help us now with a year-end, tax-deductible donation? Visit our website for pictures and more details.
  • $1,008 will repair 1 section of roof or re-plaster and paint 2 rooms
  • $512 will pay the head doctor and clinic administrator's salaries for 1 month
  • $252 will pay the midwife's salary for 3 weeks
  • $108 will buy a month's supply of medicines
  • $52 will buy 1 clean birthing kit, with prenatal vitamins
  • $25 will pay for gasoline for 1 ambulance trip to hospital

10 Levels Amitabha and Introduction to True Nature of Mind In Bodhgaya Schudule

Dear Dharma brothers and sisters,
Last year after the Bodhgaya Phowa course, many people requested Rinpoche for the Introduction to True Nature of Mind Teaching and the 10 Levels Buddha Amitabha Teachings. Since the True Nature of Mind Teachings need private interview with each person, it takes many days. Therefore, the annual Phowa course in Bodhgaya had to be replaced this year by the True Nature of Mind Teaching and the 10 Levels Buddha Amitabha Teachings.

For those people who have not received Introduction to True Nature of Mind Teaching from Rinpoche earlier, private interviews will be required, which is scheduled from December 29, 2015 to January 4, 2016. If you have not received the True Nature of Mind teaching from Rinpoche before, you will not be permitted to receive the TNM teachings without the interview. For those who have received Introduction to True Nature of Mind teaching from Rinpoche earlier, interview is not required and may attend the teaching if you are interested.
Introduction to True Nature of Mind Teaching is on January 5, 2016; and Milarepa Tsog Offering Prayer is January 6, 2015. The 10 Level Buddha Amitabha Teaching and Practice is from December 24-28, 2015.
