Silent Auction and Fundraiser for Langtang, Nepal
On April 25th, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, with an epicenter in Kathmandu, rocked the Indian subcontinent. As the people in the small remote village of Langtang looked up that morning, instead of seeing the majestic mountains overlooking them, they saw the mountains come crashing down on top of them. Langtang, a longtime destination for alpine trekkers and spiritual seekers alike, was reduced to rubble. Landslides following the quake ensured that everything that Langtang was, and had ever been, was buried under the earth.
Currently, several hundred survivors are living in a makeshift tent village in the Yellow Monastery in Kathmandu and enduring the heat, humidity and rain of the monsoon season. A member of our spiritual community, a woman named Chetten, lost 30 members of her family.
Please join us, Katog Jana Ling, as we open our hearts to show the people of Langtang that their cries have not gone unheard. 100% of all proceeds generated will go directly to the people of Langtang.
