Kalu Rinpoche has asked Lama Lodro to supervise the reconstruction of Ri-Drak Monastery in Eastern Tibet. Ri-Drak Monastery was established at the place where Kalu Rinpoche meditated for 13 years in solitary retreat after an initial three-year retreat. Currently, Ri-Drak houses 60 monks for whom Lama Lodro is responsible. The present monastery is in need of repairs and expansion. Many parents are now starting to bring their children to the monastery for their education.

Kagyu Droden Kunchab is asking for contributions to help with this endeavor. $5000 is needed to cover monastery reconstruction. Please contact: Carolina Elliott (Chairman, Monastery Fund), 9 Estado Court, Novato, CA 94947, 415-897-6374.
