Prayer Requests 

It's traditional in Buddhist cultures, for patrons to make donations with requests for monks and nuns to do prayers. This provides support for the monasteries and spiritual benefits for the donors. We have set up a system with Chorten Gonpa in Sikkim to facilitate those who would like to make such requests. You can download a list of available prayers/ceremonies in PDF format here:
