URGENT NEED FOR CATARACT SURGERY FUNDS FOR VENERABLE LAMA TSANG TSING

Dear Dharma Friends, Funds are urgently needed for cataract surgery for Venerable Lama Tsang Tsing. This surgery was recommended last year by his eye doctor, however Lama-la did not proceed at that time due to lack of funds. Upon his return to the USA, he saw his ophthalmologist who recommended that the surgery be done this year. Postponing this surgery could cause possible complications. Therefore, for the sake of his vision, Lama-la has decided to proceed with the surgery this March and surgery dates have been scheduled. The cost of the surgery is $6,500 and this amount needs to be raised by March 1, 2018. I hope that everyone will give as generously as they can to help preserve Lama-la’s vision so he may be able to continue to benefit beings with his Empowerments, Teachings, and Blessings. He has touched many of your lives in profound ways. Lama Tsang Tsing Continue Reading →
