Blessing of the Animals

This past Saturday, Venerable Geshe Thupten Phelgye will visited the sanctuary to bless the rescued animals. He founded the Universal Compassion Movement, serves as a member of the Tibetan Parliament in Exile and promotes a vegetarian diet. Learn more about him(links to his website)

Additionally, you may wish to visit Dharma Voices for Animals and find out how compassion towards nonhumans can be integrated into spiritual teachings.

Our local paper did a nice story on it - read here.

Hi there,

I am an editor for Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly and we are going to do a piece on The Venerable Geshe Thupten Phelgye's visit to your place last week. I was wondering if we might use one of your photographs from his visit to accompany the piece, with any attribution you might specify. Please let me know by emailing me at adam [at]

Thank you!
