Great Borderless Love

中文

In the past 4 years, under the leadership of Bhante Maṅgala, Tusita/Malaysia Dhamma Society (MDS) has contributed numerous social beneficial projects in Dhampus, Nepal.

Tusita Nepal

Among them are :-

 

Concrete Bridge

we helped to solve inaccessibility problem permanently during a lengthy 3 months raining season.

Bridge Building

Built and repaired roads

with limited resources, villagers are only able to provide immediate short term countermeasures to land erosion and road damages. These countermeasures are wasting effort and resources. Thus, every year we will select a section of the road that needs to be repaired, consolidated and provide other long term solutions.

Tusita Dhampus Road Condition

Schools

there are 2 micro- sized primary schools in Dhampus. These schools are where the local children seek education. They are our “adopted” schools.

Tusita Charity

Nepal Monastery

our gradual and steady constructions over the years have been providing 4 to 5 permanent job opportunities to the villagers. Else, they have to work in foreign countries where they have to be separated from their beloved family.

Tusita Nepal Development

Each year, Tusita has a few events which involve candle lighting. Those who participate, not only are directly involved in supporting local monastics’ practice and local social beneficial activities, but also indirectly supporting in the above mentioned projects.

 

Herein, we would like to express our deepest appreciation towards your selfless contributions. We cherish and rejoice your good deeds where it brings joy and great love to the people in Nepal. With these meritorious deeds, we wish that your Nobel aspirations be fulfilled.

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
