Supporting the Muktinath Nuns

Funds for nuns
The Muktinath Nuns, * the traditional caretakers of Muktinath-Chumig Gyatsa, realize that preserving their own culture is connected to their ability to adjust to modern times. Education is key in this process.

If you want to help the MFI to support the Muktinath nuns, you could consider giving a donation. Your money will be used by the nuns for livelihood, medical care and education. (Dutch visitors, please so also the donation page of our Dutch website.)

Delivery of donations in 2016
Every year the donations are delivered to the nuns in Nepal, either in Muktinath or in Kopan House, the house of the nuns in Boudhanath, Kathmandu, used for practice, education and reateat.

Tourists with Recordings from Muktinath
If you have visited Muktinath before 1985 and are willing to donate copies of your film recordings or pictures for the MFI Image Bank Project, please send us an e-mail.
