Drikung Nuns Project


Since 2006 Khenpo Sherab Ozer has been teaching nun’s the BuddhaDharma.  He has worked tirelessly to bring the nun’s education and opportunities on par with that of the Monasteries.  The community of practitioners in this country have responded with kindness and generosity and have been sending funds so that the nuns can have texts, books, libraries, etc.  What follows is an except from one of Khenpo’s earlier letters:

Dear Friends and Students,

First, I would like to wish you all a sincere Tashi Delek. It has been a long time since I was able to be in touch. For the past few years I have been living primarily at Samten Choling Nunnery in Eastern Tibet, overseeing the education of the resident nuns in Tibetan language and Buddhist scripture.

Until I took on their cause, the opportunities for nuns to study were few and far between. Since beginning their studies, they have been movingly sincere and incredibly diligent and I am truly pleased with their progress and optimistic about their future. In fact, earlier this last autumn we held a great accumulation retreat for six
days, for which we invited lamas from the five major traditions. At this time several of the nuns gave Dharma teachings to the entire assembly without even relying on texts.

I pray that you are all well and that your practice is successful. I look forward with great joy to the time we will meet again. Until then, let us recite mantra and continue to practice together!

With Sincere Best Wishes and Much Love,
Khenpo Sherab Ozer
