RYI’s students and staff help distribute food hampers during Nepal's lockdown.


Recently some of RYI’s students and staff, including RYI's principal Philippe Turenne, helped out with the Rangjung Yeshe Shenpen initiative of providing food hampers to some of Kathmandu’s poorest. These hampers were distributed to the families of daily wage laborers who have lost their main source of income due to the lock-down which started on March 23. Many of these people have lost their main source of income due to the national lockdown happening in Nepal. Rangjung Yeshe Shenpen is the social work organization of Ka-Nying Shedrub Ling Monastery under Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche’s direction.
