IGNCA through its Narivada Project looked into empowerment of Buddhist Nuns who came from Tibet and records how Nunnery came into existence by toiling through time and following His Holiness Dalai Lama’s vision “Fundamental to every world religion is the belief that we must reduce own selfishness to serve others”.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma

I was very happy to find these great Hindu texts of the ancient times. Been a fan of both Mahabhratham and Ramayanam since I was a small boy. Now the whole family can enjoy these very important cultural texts at home.
