Rejuvenate Shugsep

Shugsep is an ancient Nyingma nunnery that traces its rituals and practice to some of the most illustrious female practitioners in Tibetan history.

Now Shugsep Nunnery and Institute is aging and the classrooms, dormitories, kitchen, temple, and other buildings need maintenance. The heavy monsoon rains and harsh environment of northern India are hard on the nunnery complex.

The 85 nuns work hard to maintain their nunnery. But there are many projects beyond their ability that they need your help with, such as:

  • Mold removal and prevention
  • Solar panel roof repair
  • Water tank repair
  • Painting of the nuns’ dormitories
  • Security system for the nunnery and grounds to avoid break-ins

Help maintain Shugsep Nunnery and Institute as a strong and healthy nunnery!
