Since 2009 the Lama Zopa Rinpoche Bodhichitta Fund has sponsored a small nunnery, Bigu Nunnery, located in a remote area of Nepal, to undertake annual 100 million mani retreats. In 2012 the fund started to sponsor two 100 million mani retreats. US$5,956 (600,000 Nepali rupees) was just granted for the sponsorship of the second retreat.
In addition to sponsoring the actual retreat and offering food to all the nuns in retreat, the fund also sponsors one Geshe Lobsang Gyaltsen to stay at the nunnery and give ongoing lam-rim teachings to the nuns.
Recently, eight new nuns joined the nunnery. During the retreat the nuns make strong prayers for Lama Zopa Rinpoche; FPMT centers, projects and services; all FPMT students, staff and volunteers; and also for all who contribute to the sponsorship of the 100 million mani retreats.
If you would like to contribute to the sponsorship of these retreats, which not only benefit the nuns of Bigu Nunnery but also the entire FPMT organization, you may donate any amount:
