Dear Practitioners and Friends,

Candles for Peace

The war in Ukraine has become a humanitarian crisis, families are falling apart, many are losing their homes, and more and more people are dying. Refugees are fleeing to Hungary as well and they need urgent aid and help. This tragedy and these events deeply affect everyone, we are all moved, saddened, and feel the urge to act, regardless of our religion or faith.

In this situation, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche and Ligmincha are asking and encouraging all practitioners and friends to join the regular online common prayers, practices, and take action to help those who are in need.

As a religious organization, Ligmincha Hungary, with its available resources, makes every effort to provide support and assistance to those who need it the most. Our organization has only a few active people and we do not have a center yet, so we have decided to work directly with refugee care and aid organizations, primarily with the Baptist Charity Service, so we will start collecting and delivering offerings for them starting next week.

How can you help?
