Chinghai Yushu Earthquake Relief Funds

This morning 14th April 2010, we heard from the news that an earthquake struck Qinghai in China. Lodro Nyima Rinpoche and his Lamas were in Thrangu Centre Petaling Jaya.

What unfolded later was a tragedy of unprecedented proportion as Rinpoche received calls from his monks and Lamas who escaped the tragedy.

Yushu the town where Thrangu Monastery is located and Lodro Nyima Rinpoche is the Chief Abbot was badly damaged from the earthquake. At the time of writing Rinpoche got news that so far 15 bodies of monk had been pulled out of the rubble. Rinpoche also have confirmed news that his Khenpo also died from this disaster. His Lama with us also has lost his elder brother in this earthquake.

Rinpoche mentioned that the Chinese Army are already there helping the Tibetan community and they have ordered the evacuation of Yushu town. The nearby dam was also badly damaged and there is a risk that if it breaks the whole town will be swept away.

Rinpoche has expressed concern that the nomads and the residents of Yushu have gone to higher grounds and without proper clothing and Shelter they may not survive the freezing night temperature.

In the light of this extraordinary tragedy Thrangu Dharma Society Petaling Jaya with the advice and blessing of Lama Lodro Thaye the Resident monks, we are starting a donation drive called the “Qinghai Yushu Earthquake Relief Funds.”

The object of the funds collected will go towards alleviating the sufferings in Yushu in particular, and the Venerable Lodro Nyima Rinpoche will manage the utilization of the funds monies.

As a coordinating Centre, Thrangu Dharma Society Petaling Jaya will prepare a special page on our Thrangu Web site where all donations from the Public will be displayed. Receipts will be issued for all donations.
