Lindymalawinner-th

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:

om tara!
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!

10,000 Names

Among our greatest inspirations are the Nangchen Nuns. Quietly living in the remote plains of eastern Tibet are between 3,000 and 4,000 nuns who reside in approximately 30 different monasteries scattered throughout the countryside.

For 250 years these nuns have dedicated their lives to the practice of constant prayer, sending their love and compassion out to all of us. In the words of Tsoknye Rinpoche III:


“These women embody the full richness of Buddhist love, compassion and wisdom in female form.  It’s quite rare, I think.  If this light of tradition is gone from this earth, even though we have text, the experiential warmth and blessings of this living women’s tradition will be gone forever.”

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. As a token of our love,  we will present the Nuns with a scroll of 10,000 names.

In addition,

For every 10,000 names we will donate $1,000 to the Nangchen Nuns of Tibet whose lives are dedicated to prayer for the blessing of all beings.

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.

Simply post your name in a comment on our 10,0000 Names page to add your name to the scroll.

Namaste,

Matsya Siosal
