FOUNDATION

Sangter Foundation - square

The main idea behind the creation of the Sangter Foundation is to support the development of Sikkim – one of states of India, located in the Himalayan Region, at the foothill of Kanchenjunga. Under the auspices of Sangter Tulku Rinpoche, a Buddhist teacher, abbot of two Buddhist monasteries from Karma Kamtzang lineage, a group of volunteers from Poland and other countries has been working on improving the quality of life of people inhabiting this mountainous region.

South Sikkim is a region at the foothill of the third highest peak of the world – Kanchenjunga. The area is scarcely populated, mountainous, subject to rough Himalayan climate, with poor road infrastructure and majority of population living of agriculture. It is a very ethnically diverse region, with extremely rich history and culture. It is also in a dire need of help, and this is what the Sangter Foundation, supported by people of good will, is trying to do.

The success of Sangter Foundation is a result of a joint effort of Sangter Rinpoche followers and students as well as friends, volunteers and donors from all over the world. We implement some new international projects in order to gather sufficient funds, knowledge, equipment and human potential in order to achieve our objectives. That is helping to create an efficient health care system, increasing the quality of life of local communities, providing education and protecting the culture of this region.
We also happily support other initiatives aimed at improving the quality of life and human health, predominantly ones thanks to which we can do something good for the others, irrespectively of geographical location and circumstances.

Thujichi Rimpochee 🙏

Hello,as I have had great devotion and reverence for sangter and so called karmapas and as after events lead by him which I joined in hope of helping others and as I asked for help and blessing for my grandfather after which all ended totally wrong with much of suffering and especially with my grandfather becoming teribly suffering bad spirit I am absolutely ashamed of myself and I feel total remorse and I wand all offerings and such things taken back from such terrible place since sangter and all of his activities are just harmful deceptive things for whom people and sentient beings and they suffering are no more than a cattle or a toy that is source for they corrupt desires aimed at destruction of all that is good so by this message I want to restore purify rebuild and mad even strongest than ever all good especially those prevented one. Please abandon your harmful path and go towards virtue instead.

As you might remember at the beginning of December, at various locations around Ravangla area we were providing free eye diagnosticsas as well as free reading glasses for citizens in need. All this happened with professional help of Optikermeister from Penang, Malaysia Mr Choong K F. Many thanks again to all friends, Dharma brothers and sisters that made great effort with organising this appointments.
In the same time, team of Sangter Foundation distributed blankets among senior members of community. We believe this would be a very welcomed gift for cold, winter nights that are about to come.
Jak pewnie pamiętacie, na początku grudnia, w rejonie Ravangla zapewiniliśmy mieszkańcom możliwość darmowego badania wzroku. Było to możliwe dzięki profesjonalnemu wsparciu ze strony doktora Choong KF z Peneng w Malezji. Zostały również rozdane okulary do czytania. Dziękujemy jeszcze raz wszystkim przyjaciołom, siostrom i braciom w Dharmie, którzy pomogli w organizacji tych spotkań.
W tym samym czasie zespół Sangter Foundation rozdawał koce starszym członkom lokalnych społeczności. Wierzymy, że bardzo przydadzą się w nadchodzące chłodne, zimowe noce.

Sangter Rinpoche biography

Sangter Foundation - square

Venerable Sangter Tulku Rinpoche is reincarnation of terton Dorje Lingpa. Born in Sikkim Venerable Sangter Rinpoche was formally recognized as a Tulku from the Nyingmapa tradition, but he studied and completed the three-year meditation retreat in Benchen Monastery in Nepal. Although he is responsible for his own monasteries in Sikkim, in appreciation for his dedication in working for the Benchen community, Sangye Nyenpa Rinpoche and Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche, consider him a Rinpoche from Benchen monastery. Venerable Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche recommended fully Sangter Tulku Rinpoche as a Buddhist teacher, underlining that people can rely both on his education and his meditation experience.

During the summer course in the year 2010 in the Buddhist Centre in Grabnik Venerable Kyabje Tenga Rinpoche said: "When Sangter Tulku Rinpoche reached the age of seventeen or eighteen, he was with His Eminence Chatral Rinpoche. At that time, Chatral Rinpoche made a prophecy for him, by saying: 'it would be a great benefit for your future if, for your further education, you go to Benchen Monastery'. So then, around the age of seventeen or eighteen, he went to Benchen Monastery and entered this tradition. He started studying all the necessary monastic rituals and other things. Eventually, he went to the three-year retreat center in Benchen Retreat Centre known as Benchen Drubde Osal Ling (Pharping, Nepal). He did the three years and seven-months intensive retreat. I consider him a very good practitioner. During his three-year retreat, he definitely managed to gain excellent experiences and realization. Especially, Sangter Rinpoche loves me very much. He has given all his heart to me and I always consider Sangter Rinpoche as one of the tulkus, one of the Rinpoches of Benchen Monastery".


Sangter Foundation and its objectives

Sangter Foundation - square

The main objective of Sangter Foundation is to create an efficient basic health care system available to all inhabitants of Sikkim. Because of very poor road infrastructure and difficulties to reach some areas of Sikkim in winter and during monsoon, access to health care is seriously hindered, in some places even impossible. We as Sangter Foundation acts to change this. We work to actively and efficiently improve health care services in this region. We want local people to know that in case of a disease or an accident, there is a place nearby that can provide them with quick and efficient medical help. It is important that such help does not require them to travel long hours to very distant health care centers, and does not require expenditures either. Medical help has to be generally available, safe, comprehensive and on a high level. We are focusing mostly on building new or adapting the existent buildings for medical purposes, equipping the buildings with the necessary equipment, as well as on organizing the transfer of knowledge, skills and human resources to achieve this objective. We are also building the foundations for future generations, by creating an education system that would teach future nurses, natural medicine therapists and the like. These objectives are accomplished by our main medical project that focuses on everything health-related: the Sangter Foundation Clinic. The Clinic is a place where physicians, physiotherapists, and other medical professionals work providing medical help to the Sikkimese. We are doing our best to guarantee access to free health care to inhabitants of Sikkim, health care including conventional and natural medicine.
