Volunteers 'Homestay the Taras'
We are looking enthusiastic volunteers who would like to work in the guesthouse 'Homestay the Taras' for this year 2015.
There is still a need for a volunteer for the month of June and the first week of July. For August we have a volunteer, but she prefers to share the work with another so we need another volunteer for August too.
History of Nuns in Ladakh
Ladakh is a high mountain desert in northwestern India. Since the beginning of the tenth century AD, the Tibetan Buddhist culture plays an important part in this region. The famous teacher and translator Rinchen Khando, who founded the first Buddhist University in Nyerma, brought Tibetan Buddhism to Ladakh. That is the historic spot where in 2004 the new nunnery for a group of elderly nuns Chattnyanling has been built.
