Dinner Fund-Raiser for 2016 Tour of Buddhist Monks
By Suzanne Ludekens
Join us for a fund-raising dinner Saturday, November 7, to bring the Samtenling Monastery Master and four monks to San Miguel in 2016 for ‘‘El Tour de Bendiciones” (The Tour of Blessings). This dinner is the first of a series of events to finance the visit of the monks to perform Buddhist ceremonies, lectures, and pujas.

The dinner is provided by a group of volunteers coordinated by Eloina Capdevielle, Laura Aguilar, and Alicia Mayo and includes a live Skype call with monastery director Samten. Anyone interested in volunteering and contributing to the Tour de Bendiciones is most welcome, especially benefactors to sponsor the monks’ travel expenses. The support group seeks to raise US$7,000 to bring the monks to Mexico.
This 2016 Tour de Bendiciones by the monks from the Samteling Monastery is an event to raise funds for the monks to repair the earthquake-damaged monastery and continue with their service to their community in Nepal.
In 2012, the last tour by the monks, they captured our hearts with beautiful rituals, practical philosophy, playful humor, and exemplary generosity. To reserve your place for the dinner, (250 pesos) be a benefactor to the 2016 Tour de Bendiciones, or make a financial contribution, please call Alicia 152 0376 (English) or Eloina 415 113 3154 (Spanish).
