Helping our Sister Tsokme and our Ukrainian Bönpo Brothers and Sisters
March 4, 2022
As we all know and feel deeply with sadness, the war in Ukraine has taken center stage in world events and the human dimension is tragic.
The Ukrainian people in Ukraine, including our Bonpo practitioner brothers and sisters, are in something like the hell realm. Major cities are being bombed. Civilians are targeted. Funds, food and supplies are hard to get. They need help on the ground in Ukraine. Many of our Ukrainian tsokme members are still in Ukraine, helping each other as best they can.
Over 1,000,000 Ukrainians, including 500,000 children, have fled to Poland and other countries for safety. The refugees are straining the host countries’ resources. The refugees need help in Poland and other countries. Some of our Ukrainian tsokme members have managed to take refuge in Poland, where they are working to help other refugees. Members of Instytut Śardza Ling are also helping in Poland.
Yeru Bon Center, in conjunction with Instytut Śardza Ling in Poland, is helping our Bonpo brothers and sisters, their families, and the Ukrainian people.
They are in need of medical supplies, basic essentials, funds and more. We are arranging for medical supplies and funds to be sent into Ukraine, and for support for refugees located in Poland.
We need your help. Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche has asked Yeru Bon Center to reach out to our members and friends for help in this crisis. As Bon practitioners, this is where our compassion and love comes into play for all sentient beings.
I know, it seems I am constantly asking for financial support for Bon causes in India and Nepal. But this crisis for our Ukrainian practitioner brothers and sisters and for the Ukrainian people deserves our help.
The war in Ukraine has forced this need on the world, and Yeru Bon Center and Instytut Śardza Ling are responding to this crisis. If you can help, please click the Donate button below.
Yeru Bon Center will continue to hold prayer sessions on Tuesday evenings, at 7:00 Central time, to pray for peace in Ukraine. Please join us.
