November 24th 2013 was Jetsun Kushok’s birthday, and it was a special occasion because it fell on the major Buddhist Holiday, Lha Bab Duchen. To help celebrate we gave her the gift of no more bank mortgage for her retreat center, Sakya Kachod Choling!
Sakya Kachod Choling had two debts. The first was our mortgage with the bank. It was a regular mortgage with interest and the gompa property as security. The second is an in-house, no interest and no security loan.
We paid off the bank loan!
A special card with all the donors names was given to Jetsun Kushok along with the paid off mortgage papers. Any money exceeding the amount needed to pay off the bank loan went towards paying down the in-house loan.
This is such a wonderful moment in the history of Sakya Kachod Choling! A special thanks to all who helped!
