Young Monks at Ayang Rinpoche’s Monastery in Bylakuppe
There is an immediate need for a nurse or someone with some medical experience to care for the daily health and hygiene needs of the monks at Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in South India. There are approximately 130 monks currently in residence, with an additional 30 young monks due to arrive soon. This a very special opportunity to give the gift of your time, energy and experience.
