Olmo Ling is a religious educational non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the ancient teachings of the Bon tradition of Tibet and making them available and accessible to lay practitioners. The Center offers weekly meditation practice and teachings, prayers, meditation instruction and private interviews, and a study program that includes regular retreats with Tempa Dukte Lama and visiting lamas of the Bon tradition. A Refuge for Practitioners Our weekly program offers a space of refuge; a space where people can support each other in their practice and where we can reconnect with our innate pure nature and good heart. Bon Studies Olmo Ling’s study program offers the Bon teachings through retreats and workshops on a variety of topics for practitioners of all ages. In order to preserve the Bon traditions for current and future practitioners, the Center publishes new and commentary texts and translations of essential Bon practices. Bon Social Action The Bon spiritual teachings of compassion and liberation from suffering become alive when we express them through our actions. Olmo Ling offers special training practices in the area of healing and programs in compassionate care and spiritual support for the dying. We are currently working to establish a Project on Being with Dying, a Children and Teen Project, and a Prison Project. The Project on Being with Dying offers training programs in compassionate care for working with the dying along with spiritual help and support for the dying. The Olmo Ling Prison Project offers prisoners guided meditation instruction in ways to transform their difficulties. These training programs enable people who wish to actively help others to become a resource for them through social action inspired by the Bon teachings

The Humla region of northwestern Nepal is one of the most stunningly beautiful, as well as, geographically isolated and underserved areas of Nepal. Healthcare resources are scarce, with only one hospital in a region the size of Connecticut and a population of over 50,000. Many villages lack even a single trained healthcare worker, forcing villagers to walk days to access basic health services.
The Humla Nursing Education Project plans to address this need by identifying local students in Humla who aspire to careers in nursing in their home villages. We will cover the cost of tuition, books and other supplies throughout their education in exchange for a commitment to serve the Humla region as community healthcare workers. The cost of 4 years of education in the capital city, Kathmandu, is less than the cost of a semester at some US public universities.
SANGITA our first student:
Our first student, Sangita, has already passed entrance exams and is studying at nursing school thanks to private donations. With your help, we can ensure that she finishes her education and returns to serve her remote community at the top of the world. Your sponsorship and in-kind donations will help us reach this goal and expand access to healthcare for the people of Humla.
