From Tempa Lama, November 28, 2015
On 13th November our Benchen Monastery participated a big conference on environmental protection for Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and nunneries in the Himalayas. The senior monks Dawa Sherpa and Karma Yonten Lophel went as the Benchen delegation to participate in the conference at the Gyuto monastery, Dharamsala. This year we have received a very nice certificate for this year's efforts for the environment from His Holiness Karmapa. The Benchen monastery is very much dedicated to work for environmental issues.
