Hello Friend

Thanks so much for visiting our fundraising pages

This is an invitation for you to be part of a strenuous challenge to help bring Peace and Light to our world... by sponsoring us (100% to the charity). 

We're undertaking a trek, climbing from 3,000 metres in north west Nepal across the Himalayas into Tibet and on around Mt Kailas up to 5,700 metres. Our journey starts on UN Peace Day, 21 sept, carrying and speaking out a thousand Peace Messages, sending peace and harmony to all.  

Mt Kailas is considered the most holy mountain in Asia, a battle-ground of Light and darkness. Pilgrims traditionally go around it doing prostrations. Physically this involves laying the body down on the rocks and dirt with arms outstretched, then standing up, taking a step and repeating the process over the entire 35 miles around. My intention is to do as many prostrations as our allotted time permits,(or more likely as my old bod and altitude sickness permits!) It'll be a way of honouring the Light.

When things are tough it will help so much to know that kind friends are sponsoring us by donating to the Tibet Relief Fund, whose educational work we've supported  for many years, now for the rebuilding of Bakhang school for Tibetan refugee children in Nepal devastated by the earthquakes - children who deserve the chance to be able to learn to read and write...

I see it as a way of giving back to Tibet...  which has given out so much wisdom and Light to the world within its uniquely non-violent struggle for freedom from oppression - a Light for Peace.

Thank you so much for any donation. A thousand blessings on you...
