Description

Details

Robes are the clothes of a monk or nun (the Sangha). They are considered to be one of the most holy belongings of an ordained person, as it shows their dedication to the spiritual path and their love for the welfare of mother sentient beings.

The essential set of Tibetan Buddhist monk robes consists of three pieces which are:
  1. Donka: a shirt with cap sleeves. This can be fully maroon in colour with blue piping, or maroon and yellow with blue piping

  2. Shantab: a maroon skirt

  3. Zen: an outer maroon shawl to cover the Donka

For the ordained person

The tradition of wearing robes has been passed down from the founder of Buddhism, Shakyamuni himself. Wearing the robes represents the vows that an ordained person holds, and reflects their commitment to bring happiness and comfort, and to relieve the sufferings of sentient beings. So every day a monk or nun continues to don the robes and hold their vows is another day they create immeasurable merit for themselves and their sponsors.

For you, the practitioner

Through the virtue of the monks upholding their vows and helping sentient beings, the ordained Sangha become a source of inspiration for others who are seeking spiritual solace.

When we offer items such as robes to the Sangha, our support for them creates the causes for the Dharma to remain. In making sincere offerings, we also create the causes for an abundance of spiritual and material wealth for ourselves.

Thus, to seek help for and to sponsor the Sangha creates immeasurable positive results for both our secular and spiritual life – the happiness and fulfillment we gain from making such offerings is unmatched to the results of any other altruistic contributions we can otherwise make.

Please join us in supporting the Sangha of Gaden Monastery, through the works of H.E. Tsem Rinpoche. When you sponsor the PERSEVERANCE SET, you are sponsoring one piece each of the:
  1. Donka (Upper robe)
  2. Shamthap (Lower robe)
  3. Ngullen (Inner shirt)
  4. Long Zen (Long shawl)

It is due to the kindness of these holy monks and nuns that we are able to receive the Dharma today. Sangha members commit their lives to following the path of the perfect Buddha by putting others' needs above theirs. Join us in creating the causes for the growth of Dharma, and for the happiness and peace that you will gain in your own lives.
