Geden Choeling 2

Lha is happy to announce that it has successfully installed the 17th Water Filtration System at Geden Choeling ‪Buddhist‬ Educational Nunnery.

The Geden Choeling Buddhist Educational Society is a ‪‎Tibetan ‬Nunnery founded in 1973 in the exiled Tibetan community of Dharamshala, India.

It is an important centre of Buddhist Studies for nuns and runs under supervision of the Department of Religion and Culture, Central Tibetan Administration. It is considered as the oldest nunnery in exile and at present there are over 170 nuns studying and living the monastic life within its wall.

Geden Choeling 3The water purification system is an UV+ UF and TTS, and is considered one of the best systems available in the area. It will provide more than one hundred liters of safe drinking water per hour to the elderly people and the staffs living there. The filtration system includes a stainless steel tank with capacity of holding five hundred liters.

We hope that this water purification system will help to alleviate major waterborne illnesses like typhoid and cholera that residents commonly suffer from in this region, especially during the monsoon season. We believe that this will contribute to maintaining a high level of general health among the residents.

Lha, on the behalf of the 175 nuns and 10 staff members of the Geden Choeling Nunnery, would like to extend our deepest appreciation to the Lama Lena Yeshe Kaytup for making the 17th Water Project successful thorough his generous donation and support.

Geden Choeling 1We will be installing four more such systems in a Tibetan settlement, a nunnery, a monastery and a school before the end of this year to mark 2015 as the year of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

So far around 7265 people have benefited from the Lha's Clean Water Project and we are hoping to install more in the future with the help of our generous donors around the globe.
