Chagpori Salugara (Site of the new Chagpori Institute)
Chagpori Tibetan Medical Institute has their roots in a variety of areas and while growing bigger, the need to centralize the different departments became very strong. That’s why Trogawa Rinpoche and the board decided to purchase a plot of land in Salugara, Siliguri where the whole institute can be together. It took quite some negotiations and time to acquire it, but on 11th July 2013 the construction started with the “Ground-breaking” ceremony.
A lot has happened since then and we happily celebrated the ceremony to mark the completion of the ground floor of the pharmacy at Salugara on 29th November 2014. The Yangsi of Trogawa Rinpoche and the B.A. Foundation president, Mr. Paul Tameling both lit butter lamps and a commemorative plaque was unveiled to mark the occasion.
We wholeheartedly thank the B.A. Foundation, the Chagpori Support Group members, all friends and well-wishers who helped us make this project possible. The construction of the 1st floor of the pharmacy building resumed on 15th May 2016 after a long gap. This was partly due to paucity of funds and the change of contractor. We eagerly look forward to the completion of the construction, so we can have a full fledged pharmacy.
Our main idea is to make the pharmacy the income generating unit of Chagpori, by which we will become self supporting. This is very important for the continuation and future growth of Chagpori.
We still need 35.000 Euro for the completion of the pharmacy building. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.
