http://tibetfund.org/sponsorship-program/sponsor-a-monk/drepung-loseling/ is one of Tibet’s largest monastic universities.

Located in the hills in the outskirts of Lhasa, it was established in 1416.

With the destruction of most of Tibetan cultural and religious institutions by the Chinese, several hundred Loseling monks escaped to India,

where they worked diligently to preserve their spiritual, cultural, academic and artistic traditions and re-establish their monastery in 1971 in South India, Karnataka State.

The majority of monks depend almost entirely upon the monastery for their support.

Two-third of the monks are new refugees from Tibet and a number of young monks are orphans.

Special Senior Monks Program: Each of the senior monks offered for sponsorship here were members of Drepung Monastery in Lhasa, Tibet and escaped from the Chinese occupation of Tibet in 1959.

With the re-establishment of their monastery in India, these monks continued their studies and most obtained their higher Geshe degree.

All served as teachers; some are abbots and many of them serve as the managers.

Some of the monks are still responsible for raising funds and running the monastery, which has currently over 3000 monks. They lead a content and religious life that sets an example to the younger generation
