Bodhi Seeds was founded by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche to help with the many needs of monastic and lay communities in the Himalayan regions of India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet. Bodhi Seeds is currently supporting much needed medical clinics in Rumtek, India, and Legon, Tibet.
The Tso Jey Medical Clinic, established in 2011 by Bodhi Seeds, covers the basic medical needs of children and monastics living in the Rumtek Monastery community. In addition to health care, Bodhi Seeds arranges educational sponsorships for Rumtek children whose families are unable to send them to school. Generous donations currently provide tuition for four young women, who have been sponsored from the third grade into their current first and second years of college.
The Legon Clinic of Legon Monastery, located in a Tibetan area of China, serves the district’s monastics, nomads, and scattered remote villages. Donations fund medications, the salaries of medical doctors and a nurse, and sponsor patients with emergency medical needs.
