In order to maintain our current activities, deliver our future roadmap and remain firm as the bedrock of our global sangha, Samye needs your ongoing support. We invite you to become a monthly donor and be a direct cause for our activities to flourish and expand. Samye belongs to all of us!
Samye Institute has come a long way since launching in 2015 and with the help of a large team of volunteers around the world, we have become the hub of Phakchok Rinpoche’s vast teaching activities. Our mission is to provide support, programs and tools to help facilitate the practice of the Dharma in accordance with the guidance of Rinpoche and our senior instructors.
As a supporting member of Samye Institute, you will have access to all the latest materials we provide to support your study and practice.

Help support our young monks living at the Lotus Light Dharma Institute in Chapagaon, our artisan monks living at our Riwoche Monastery near Boudha, and our Tibetan medicine doctors and students practicing near Boudha.
We are aspiring to provide both a steady monthly support for these young practitioners and to gradually support them in expanding their activity. Together, this group of practitioners are learning, teaching, practicing and undertaking activity in the five major sciences of the Buddhist tradition. These are the “sciences” of craftsmanship, logic, grammar, medicine, and the “inner science” of Dharma practice. Most of our young monks will gradually complete their traditional studies of grammar and logic, and then progress to further study of the inner sciences in the monastic shedra or in long-term retreat. And some of our young monks will follow in the footsteps of our current lay and monastic students of Tibetan Buddhist medicine and the arts.
Use the form below to make either a one-time or a recurring donation to our monks.
Each year, our monks at Do-ngak Nyida Zungdrel Sherab Raltri Ling Monastery, located in Chapagaon a village in the Lalitpur District, located approximately 45 minutes south of Kathmandu, perform the following pujas or practices on behalf of Phakchok Rinpoche and his students and benefactors. These pujas were carefully selected and thought through personally by Rinpoche. They are also the pujas that are most frequently recommended by the divinations of many great masters.
The annual pujas will auspiciously start with the dakini puja of Vajra Claw. It is followed by a Sampa Lhundrup feast offerings at Asura Cave; a Ngensong Dongdruk puja from The Guru’s Heart Practice; mantra recitations and fire pujas of the Lotus Dakini (Kurukullé or Pema Khandro); finally ending with the dakini puja of White Umbrella (Sitatapatra or Dukkarmo) from The Seven Cycles of Profundity on the dakini day of the 10th month of the Tibetan calendar.
It is considered to be extremely meritorious and beneficial for anyone to participate in these practices either directly or through offerings. Participating in and making offerings to these pujas is traditionally not only done when you or a loved one are currently facing difficult times, but also to prevent future obstacles from arising in the first place.
