How you can help?

The monastery needs support! The nuns will be very grateful.
«Wherever there is Sangha there the Dharma will flourish.»
Bouddha Shakyamouni

To establish this community, all kinds of help are needed: financial, material, and others. The development of the monastery depends largely on the support of volunteers and generous donors.

These benefactors are convinced that, for the Buddha-Dharma to flourish, it is crucial to have these kinds of places, as they offer the best possible conditions for practice to those who have chosen a monastic way of life.

Give your time and skills

On a regular or occasional basis for the renovations or the upkeep of the monastery.

Volunteering

If you are interested in helping, please email benevole@monasteredorjepamo.org
or call the volunteer coordinator at +33 (0) 683662215

Joining the team of volunteers for Dorje Pamo Nunnery means working for the benefit of the Sangha, which makes it possible to generate a great quantity of virtuous energy; in other words, an immense accumulation of merit.

It means being part of this great family of people who share Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s vision of enlightenment for all living beings, and who work to make this vision a reality in their own lives and in the lives of others.

It also means working together in a fun way and with kindness. The atmosphere is relaxed and joyful, and everyone works at their own pace and participates according to their skills and availability.

What needs to be done?

Paperwork, helping with the renovations, translating documents, and maintaining the grounds and buildings are just some of the ways volunteers can help.

We organize about 4 to 5 major events per year where we try to bring together as many people as possible. Some volunteers come at other times depending on their availability, either individually or in small groups.

The work in progress and in the short term includes the finalization of the gompa (decoration of the altar and furnishing with tables, mats, cushions, etc.) and the library (making and installing shelves, recovering books and documents to be sorted according to nomenclature…).  And the regular maintenance of the 6 hectares of land (woods, orchards and meadows).

How does it work in practice?

We have a list of volunteers that we email to tell them about the main event days. These days are also announced on social media. You can come for a half-day, one or more days, or whenever you can to help with the various tasks.
