Sponsor a Monk

Sponsor a Monk Project

Many of the monks at Nyanang Phelgye Ling Monastery come from small villages where the families are very poor and uneducated. Coming to the monastery provides a unique opportunity for these monks to receive an education in modern subjects in addition to the traditional religious training. When the monks enter the monastery, we take the full responsibility for their welfare, their education, and their health. This enables them to focus completely on their studies and to practice the holy Buddha-Dharma.

To assist Nyanang Phelgye Ling Monastery in its mission to educate and train monks in the fundamentals of Dharma , we ask that you sponsor a monk here at the monastery. By pledging $25 a month (or any amount you can afford), you will help provide the monks with proper nutrition, medical care, and education. The money will go into a general fund to support all the monks, and you will be given a picture and information about your monk friend with whom you can correspond. If he is too young to write to you, the monastery will provide you with updates on his life and progress.

Please contact us at phelgyelingmonastery@gmail.com  if you are interested in this worthy project.

Thank you for your generous support.
