In February 2018 we were back to check with the two Geshes (leaders of the monastery) the planning for 2017 and to make 2018. The monastery is spiritually run by the elder Geshe, but the whole financial planning is done by the younger ones.
After a very long time and a lot of work, the monastery finally got the state permission to keep a bank account to which foreign organizations (foundations) can deposit. This simplifies the money transfer enormously.
As always, we have made an extensive inspection of the monastery – this concerns the monastery itself, as well as all expenses.
Good news: we have achieved a lot together!
• Laying a beautiful wooden floor in the old Gompa
• Replacement of all beds, pillows and blankets
• Many small repairs
• Replacement of the water tank
• Private English teacher from May / June 2018
For 2019, we want to put the food supply and health care at the center of our activities.
In addition, the structural renovation of the entrance gate must be approached in perspective.
