In July (please see July 11 post) , Bodhi Seeds set out to help a Tibetan nun living in Legon, Tibet named Ani Lhaga. She needed $11,000 to pay for hip replacement surgery. With the aspirations of people from across the world, that goal has been reached.
Acharya Tashi called Lama Ajo and told him that money is available for his sister's new hip. She will go to Chengdu to have the best techniques applied by the best surgeons for the best outcome.
In seeking to help Ani Lhaga, men and women from Canada, the United States, Hong Kong, the Republic of China, the People's Republic of China, Romania, France, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom have all joined together to make this possible.
The fact is Ani Lhaga is a complete stranger to every donor; nonetheless, this generosity has been shown her. There must be an empathic connection beyond the specifics of the person that once felt, bridges any apparent obstacles to giving.
