The aims of these tour are to share the deep culture of the Ngari region while collecting funds to support Ngari Khangtsen. For this 2017 Tour, the Office decided to support specifically the monks who are starting and achieving their geshe studies, an equivalent of a Buddhist philosophy PH. D. as to get qualified Teachers is very important for the next generations and the futur of monasteries.
The 2017 Tour will be dedicated to:
1. build new rooms for the seniors monks and geshes.
2. create a specific “geshe insurance” funds. After 23 years of hard studies, the monks who are attempting their geshe degree have to make offerings to the whole Sangha of Sera Jey – more than 3000 monks – for a total of about 4000€. Ngari Khangtsen Office would like to save on a specific bank account with interest 100 000 indian rupees -about 1350€ – on the name of each candidate. If a monk failed his geshe degree, the money saved on his name will be dedicated to others.
