About Monk Sponsorship Programme

How you can make a difference - help Shenpen Australia to support the novices and monks of Dzogchen Monastery, South India.  

Dzogchen Monastery South India is a renowned centre for Buddhist study and practice and is the mother monastery of more than 280 branch monasteries in Tibet, India, Nepal and Bhutan. To help preserve the spiritual tradition of Tibet Dzogchen Rinpoche is introducing an exchange programme where monks will be trained for 10 years before returning to their original monastery to use what they have learnt through their
philosophical and practical training to teach other monks. At full capacity 300 monks will need sponsorship for their food, accommodation, clothing and healthcare needs to complete the programme.

How you can help?

As an example of wisdom in action, Dzogchen Rinpoche guides his students so that their lives can make a positive difference and bring lasting benefit to all.
