Since we launched our 10,000 Names Project in March people from near and far have added their name to the scroll in support of the Nangchen Nuns of Tibet. We are so deeply grateful for the shower of love and support!
For every 10,000 names we will donate $1,000 to the Nuns whose lives are dedicated to prayer for the blessing of all beings. As a token of our love we will also present the Nuns with a scroll of the names.
For every 50 names added, 10-year-old Samantha, who loves the Nuns, will randomly choose a new name from the list and that person will receive a handmade empowerment mala of their choice.
Our first winner is Lindy! She happened to be one of the first people to add her name to the scroll. On March 26th she left us this beautiful comment:
Sacred hearts of this blessed dream of being
Thank you for the illuminated jewels of your essence
of simplicity and gentle nature
I see me in you
as we are one
Each day we are moved to tears of joy and gratitude because we connect with individuals like Lindy, and you dear reader whoever you are. Thank you!
About the Nangchen Nuns
For centuries these Tibetan Buddhist nuns have dedicated their lives to the practice of constant prayer, sending their love and compassion out all beings. Right now they are praying for each and everyone of us to be liberated from suffering! These devoted women live without electricity, heat, running water or adequate medicine and our dedication to them is supported by our non-profit, Tara Malas and by this community of sacred living. Visit our Tibet page for more about the nuns and our non-profit work in Tibet.
If you haven’t yet, simply post your name in a comment on our 10,0000 Names page to add your name to the scroll and be automatically entered to win an empowerment mala. By adding your name to the scroll you affirm that you share our vision of intentional living and participate fully and courageously in the sacred journey we all share.
