1,000 People Dinner

Kindly take note that the Namo Buddha Buddhist Society in Sibu, Sarawak is organizing a 1,000 people dinner at the Bangunan Dato Seri Lim Bock Seng, SRJKC Sungei Way Petaling Jaya on the 23rd of May 2010. The purpose is to raise funds for the Qinghai Earthquake.

We applaud their compassion but to avoid any confusion, we would like to inform the public  thatThrangu Dharma Society (Petaling Jaya) are not at all consulted or are involved in any way in the organization  of this project. The mention of Thrangu Dharma Society Petaling Jaya in their sponsorship form is misleading.

The Bank Account Stated therein are not the bank account of Thrangu Dharma Society Petaling Jaya designated for the “Qinghai Yushu Earthquake Relief Funds”.

Thrangu Dharma Society Petaling Jaya will continue to promote the Qinghai Yushu Earthquake Relief Funds which was launched since 14th of April 2010.

Donation by Malaysian Buddhist Haiti Disaster Relief Group

On the 18th of April 2010 the Malaysian Buddhist Haiti Disaster Relief Group organized a fund raising program for the Earthquake Victims of Haiti. The Chief Reverend Saranankara Nayaka Maha Thera, on hearing of the Earthquake in Qinghai made an announcement at the Concert “Sound Of Compassion” of the calamity in Qinghai. 

Within minutes donation boxes were passed around the guests and patrons who attended the Concert and within a span of 5 minutes a sum of RM 15,000/- was collected. Thrangu Dharma Society Petaling Jaya the organizers of the Qinghai Yushu Earthquake Relief Funds were invited to a presentation of the sum of money for the said funds, on the 25th of April 2010.

Chief Reverend Saranankara Nayaka Maha Thera as Chairman of Malaysian Buddhist Haiti Disaster Relief Group had compassionately rounded the figure to RM20,000.00.

On behalf of Lodro Nyima Rinpoche, the Chief Abbot of Thrangu Monastery, Yushu Qinghai, we would like to humbly thank not only the Chief Reverend for his generosity but also to the Musical Group and crew of “Sound of Compassion” without which this opportunity to raise the funds would not have been created. We would also like to thank the generous donors who attended the “Sound of Compassion” that evening and contributed to this cause and finally all the members of the Malaysian Buddhist Haiti Disaster Relief Group.

On this note, we the committee of the Qinghai Yushu Earthquake Relief Funds would like to humbly convey to all of you  SADHU, SADHU, SADHU

Message by the VV Thrangu Rinpoche on the Qinghai Earthquake

Dear Friends,

I like to thank you all very much for being generous, compassionate and being ready to help in this difficult time. I have been receiving letters of condolences, mourning and asking about how to help. I like to request all of you to help in any form you can, by donating or helping to spread information, collecting donations for relief and rebuilding or saying prayers for deceased ones that they may born in the pure land of Amitabha, for strength, relief from fear and food and shelter for the left ones.

Here in Boudha, Kathmandu, all of us are saying aspiration prayers in front of Boudhanath Stupa, lighting lamps and collecting donations to send to Yushu. All the Sangha here are shocked and deeply saddened to hear the news about our dharma friends in Thrangu Monastery in Tibet and people of Yushu.

Once again I like to thank you all for your kind support in this difficult time. Your kind support for relief and rebuilding will be of great merits.

With appreciation,
Thrangu Rinpoche
