My New Home

Pema Ts'al Monastic Institute

The Institute is a very young monastery established in March 1999 by the Venerable Acharya Lama Pema Wangdak. The school is a nonprofit education project for the children of the Mustang district of Nepal. The Mustang people are ethnic Tibetans with children who have little chance of advanced education.

Lama Pema lives in NYC and was the recipient of this year's Ellis Island Medal of Honor for his outstanding work with immigrants. I have met with him several times and discussed this endeavor I am about to undertake.

After closer inspection, I think that is laundry hanging on the fences.
