Lama Tendar - help that arrives!

Who is known by the gemstone mandala in the Osterholz also among our customers Lama Tendar is not only active as a spiritual teacher, but dedicates part of his time and strength to the support of the weakest in society.

November 2020

From India we received a call for help from Lama Tendar. Originally for the summer 2020 in the context of the 2nd Osterholz Festival again a large donation appeal was planned. Due to the Corona pandemic, the festival could not be take place; likewise numerous other events have been cancelled at which Lama Tendar  would have asked for donations. 

The need is therefore great for the fled Tiber in Indian exile - so we ask you now for your support: For these seven people is very currently needed money for medical care. Per person this is about 50€ per month. In order to secure the supply with medicines for one year, thus

7 x 50 x 12 = 4200 €

Help for Tibetans in exile in India


For the attendance of the school - important basis for a self-determined life from own strength - often lacks the money. With 45,000 rupees (about 570 €) per year can be for a child the complete school education, ie books, notebooks, pens, a simple uniform and school fees, are paid.

Uprooting from their homeland and separation from family and friends are additional burdens for the refugees; their legal status is also uncertain, as India still has no legal provisions for refugees. This makes it difficult for refugees to find a job; in addition, their difficult situation is often exploited by employers and only very low wages are paid. Medical care is also usually not provided.

Further support projects of Lama Tendar are the monastery Tashijon and the nunnery Manali, where mainly money for medical treatments of the old nuns and monks, but often also for food and drink is missing.

Lama Tendar, who himself was brought to India as a young child by his mother from the Kham region (eastern Tibet) via the Himalayas, has been associated with Tibetian Refugee Holy Cave and its residents for many decades, and during his travels collects Donations for the people of his new home Rewalsar. Lectures, meditations and other spiritual teachings are basically free of charge for the participants, combined with the wish of Lama Tendar to be able to take as many donations as possible back to India. be able.

The association "Licht für Tibet e.V." also offers the possibility to take over sponsorships for individual people. Here, too, there is a need for action, since due to unemployment and changes in the family situation of the sponsors, some are no longer able to support "their" refugee. Also, 100% of the money from the sponsorships goes to the people on site; the costs for the annual trip to India are borne privately by the respective association members.

Summer 2019: Lama Tendar to visit Ludwigsburg


At the First Easterwood Festival, there was an opportunity to participate in various meditations and learn exercises in mindfulness with Lamar Tendar. This offer was free of charge, but certainly not in vain - both for one's own spiritual development and thanks to numerous donations for the Tibetan refugees.  So a total of 3888 € for the social work of Lama Tendar were donated. For this we would like to thank - also in the name of Lama Tendar - all customers, visitors and co-exhibitors who made this large amount possible!


To avoid administrative costs, Lama Tendar personally took the donations to India and exchanged them for rupees there. In early August, the disbursement to Tibetans in exile in need of support began. Depending on the family status and personal situation, between 5000 and 10,000 rupees were paid out. With this amount, which is equivalent to about 65 to 130 €, the standard of living of the people can be significantly improved : A kilo of rice costs approx. 1€, a kilo of potatoes about 50 cents. The disbursement of the money entrusted to him has been meticulously documented by Lama Tendar; only a small part has been used for travel expenses to the various projects. Lama Tendar - help that arrives at the people!
