Hi Guys - I would like to run something by everyone. As you know we had started a new FundRazr page the day Little Tenpa first was taken to the hospital, and a few of you donated that day. We would like to use that money towards sponsoring the pujas in Nepal, if those who donated are okay with that. I am also thinking that sponsoring these pujas is something we might like to do.

Tenpa has been telling us about the pujas. He is personally sponsoring what are called Tara trusol pujas that will be held at Shar Gaden...Trusol is an extensive water offering practice. He was told by a Rinpoche that this is the best pujas to sponsor for tenpa right now, and there will be one puja a week for 7 weeks. It will be costing him about 35000 Indian rupees for these pujas, which is about $600.

On Sunday he will be leaving for Nepal, and during that time there they will hold two pujas in the village of his family. These are very significant, and my thoughts are us sponsoring these pujas is a way for us to have gone the distance with him…and with Big Tenpa, and maintain our connection to them on the last part of this journey.

I know many of you have posted some wonderful suggestions on ways to continue to honor Little Tenpa, and hopefully these are things we can look at together going forward. But for right now I think this is such a beautiful way for us to do this..especially knowing how significant these last two pujas are for him and his family. The costs for those pujas are about 60,000 Nepalese rupees which is about $650. He said he thinks he has enough to cover the travel and gifts for the family..but I would like to double check on that, and we might like to help with that as well. We already have about $100 in the new page, so we have a great start.

So please, give me your thoughts..and let me know what your feeling are about this. If we do go forward with this, anyone who has a paypal account can donate directly to the account that is attached to the fundRazr page (abbycitron@aol.com). It saves us 5% on each transaction. As always (you gotta know by now, this is one of my favorite sayings) many hands..light work ♥
