Dutch Foundation for Ladakhi Nuns

to support tibetan-buddhist nuns in Ladakh, India





In the village of Nyerma

I found a special mandala


It carries many colors, shapes and streams

Smells, tastes and dreams.

It carries many sounds

Sometimes soft or sharp or loud

Sometimes shout shout shout shout


The mandala turns in it’s own way

It mirrors you a warm julley!

No part can live without the other

Some play here kid, some play mother


The dog, the birds, the plants, the earth

All has his creative magic worth

In this mandala everyone and everything

Is as a gem in a beautiful chain


A chain that seems to change and fall apart

But never can be broken, because it is a chain of heart


Thank you for being part of it, for being guest

I wish you more than all the best.

Where is Homestay Taras? Find the route using Google Maps.


You are welcome in the newly built guesthouse, "the Homestay Taras", near the new convent for elderly nuns in Nyerma, not far from the famous monastery in Thiksey.

The place is breathtakingly beautiful, overlooking the snow peaks of the Himalayas. Enjoy the tranquility of this place, where ten centuries ago, the first monastery of Ladakh was built. The ruins of the ancient stupas stand all around the monastery.
