Sponsor a Monk
Many of the monks at Segyu Gaden Phodrang Monastery come from small, rural villages where families are very poor and unschooled.
Coming to the monastery provides a unique opportunity for these monks to receive an education in modern subjects besides their traditional religious training.
When the monks enter the monastery, we take full responsibility for their welfare, education, and health. This enables them to focus completely on their studies and to practice the holy Buddha Dharma.
There are many ways you can assist Segyu Gaden Phodrang Monastery in its mission to educate and train the monks in the fundamentals of Dharma, and prepare them for a monastic life:
One way is to sponsor a monk. By pledging $25 USD a month (or any amount you can afford), you will help provide the monks with proper nutrition, medical care, and education. The money will go into a general fund to support all the monks, and you will be given a picture and information about your monk friend with whom you can correspond. If he is too young to write to you, the monastery will provide you with updates on his life and progress.
You can also make a onetime, occasional, or yearly donation, and indicate in the comment box that you are donating toward Monk Sponsorship.
These donations have been paramount in helping us provide the best for our precious monks.
There you can inform us of your wishes in the contact section and click on the donate button to set up a recurring monthly payment or make a manual payment monthly, or for the year. We will then send you an email with a photo and basic information about your mini monk and sponsorship. We welcome you to our Segyu family!
