WELCOME

Hello friends. I am currently on a pilgrimage of Buddhist Asia: Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, South Korea, China, and Mongolia, which will finish in the fall of 2019 (and with a bit of luck will continue onto a pilgrimage of Europe). I’m traveling alone with only my begging bowl and backpack (and laptop for writing). I am staying and studying at monasteries of the different Buddhist traditions while gathering material on meditation and monasticism for future books. I am surviving only on local alms (charity) for shelter, food, and land travel, although I rely on online donations for any air travel, visas, and entry/exit fees. You can follow my travels on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/tenzin.tharpa.52
If you would like to participate in my journey by lending your support, please click on my help and support page on this website. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Peace and prayers,
Tharpa
