Laughing little Buddhi Seeds!

Many under-privileged young children and orphans, as young as 5 years old, are given to Ngor Monastery each year out of severe family hardship from remote poverty-stricken Himalayan regions. At our Monastery these children are cared for through our Monastic system and are provided with food, shelter and education. Our group of children are kept safe and are prevented from being exploited through child labour and becoming homeless. With such an opportunity and amoungst such difficult conditions, our Little Bodhi Seed Monks will eventually become Buddhas. How amazing.


Ngor Monastery provides safe shelter, food, robes, hygiene, healthcare and education for our Little Bodhi Seed Monks. They need care and supervision from the Monastery's Ama La (carer) who teaches them personal hygiene and how to wash their robes. Our Little Bodhi Seed Monks are divided into groups and each group has a tutor. Each Little Bodhi Seed Monk is buddied up to an older Monk for support.


Their education starts with learning to read and write the Tibetan alphabet, arithmatic and languages such as English and Hindi to bring their education up to current standards. Our Little Bodhi Seed Monks require classrooms, pens, pencils and other writing materials for their studies.


Their Buddhadharma study includes ritual litergy and basic Dharma education at Ngor Monastery. After completing this our Monks (now between the ages of 25 to 30) go to the Sakya Institute of Vajrayana for higher Mahayana Buddhist education for 8 years. Having completing this they continue studying Vajrayana teachings for a further 3 years. On completion of their formal eduation, our Monks are given the choice to enter into long-term retreat at the Ngor Retreat Centre. Thereafter our Monks are qualified to become authentic Vajrayana teachers.


Our Little Bodhi Seed Monks are often sick with gastro, diarrhea or skin infections. In the winter months they are often sick with influenza. Due to limited facilities, our Little Bodhi Seed Monks do not have access to hot water and therefore bathe in cold water. They require a lot of winter care with medicine and warm winter clothing. They are often sick with childhood diseases due to not receiving health vaccinations during infancy in their villages. They require vitamins, medicine and food so they can be healthy and strong.


Your sponsorship to the Little Bodhi Seed Project is a very precious gift, bringing the best possibility for our Little Bodhi Seed Monks to become future Buddha's.


You and your friends and family can support the Little Bodhi Seed Project by adopting a Little Bodhi Seed at Ngor Monastery.
