Damage to Nepal Temple During Earthquake

Dear Friends,

There was a magnitude 7.8 earthquake in Nepal today, which was centered about 50 miles northeast of Kathmandu. In addition to the massive destruction and loss of life in the city of Kathmandu, the earthquake caused damage to the Amitabha Retreat Center (Opak Kyilkhor Chöling). True Lhamo wrote this morning:

The monks were too afraid to go inside the temple. They are all sleeping outside in the open air as there were around 18 frequent tremors that lasted more than an hour.

We will continue to post information and photos on our website as we learn more. Please dedicate your prayers for everyone touched by this devastating event.

Becky Loy
for everyone at the Amitabha Foundation USA
