All the monks and nuns attending the Monlam Prayer Festival will be coming from the Sakya monasteries in India, Nepal and Bhutan. This foundation pays the reasonable travel expenses for them to get to and from the festival. We require donations in order to fund this, since monks do not have any other income source. We estimate this to cost approximately IC 3439750 (US $ 53746). Any donation you can make, no matter how small, is greatly appreciated. This Year the travelling expenses is raised by 20% compare to the previous year sakya monlam. this year we are celebrating it again in Bodgaya and numbers of monks and nuns will be more than last year.
