DharmaNet International is flying the Tibetan national flag here in
acknowledgement of Tibetan sovereignity in an occupied Tibet. May the
Dharma prevail on the "roof of the world" for the benefit of all beings.
Long life and success to the Dalai Lama. May the atrocities of the Chinese
government end soon. May injustice and unkindness toward all beings
everywhere end soon. Let us make this stand together now!

restoration, the Baldan Baraivan monastery will once again be a major
center for the transmission of the Dharma in Mongolia. CRTP will be using
volunteer-tourism to fund the project. Participants will be able to work

monks who are now studying at the monastery.

Cetiya - The Maha Dhammakaya Cetiya creation is an ongoing project at

ancient times, Buddhists have always come together to build holy
sanctuaries known as 'cetiyas','stupas' or 'pagodas', as models of the
cosmos in order to pass down to younger generations the knowledge of the
Triple Gem in its entirety, together with spreading of the Way of practice
so that there might never be a time in the future for Buddhism to
disappear from the world. In the past those who could afford to build the
cetiyas, both the tallest and the biggest ones, were the members of royal
dynasties. Now, it is our chance to take part in building one.
