Sponsorship of Nuns at Thrangu Tara Abbey

While most of Thrangu Rinpoche's nuns live at Tara Abbey in Swyambunath in Nepal, some are in the traditional three year retreat in Manang, others are studying in various places in India and a few are living and teaching at centers abroad. Sponsorship money is pooled to provide for all nuns equally and the nuns are eager to correspond with their sponsors.
