10,000 Names

March 26, 2010 By: Matsya Siosal Category: Tibet

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.
