Only when you have the true confidence to value your worth or work by real substance and be free from the enslavement to external praises or blames as yardsticks can you be truly free to seek your goals. Even then please do not fail to be mindful of the fact that this worth or work will come to pass eventually.
Taking refuge in the Buddha, we break through cowardice and limitation in our mind and come to trust the limitless possibility of growth and transformation.
Taking refuge in the Dhamma~~
We firmly abide by the natural laws made known by the Buddha and thus plant right causes for the materialization of our goal.
Taking refuge in the Saṅgha, we firmly allow those saintly disciples of the Buddha who faithfully abide by the Buddha’s Teachings guide us towards the supreme goal of cessation of suffering.

Among them are :-
we helped to solve inaccessibility problem permanently during a lengthy 3 months raining season.
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.
there are 2 micro- sized primary schools in Dhampus. These schools are where the local children seek education. They are our “adopted” schools.
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.
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.
Sādhu! Sādhu! Sādhu!
