Northern New Mexico Community College
Dear Quentin Wilson:
I've contacted you in regard to a special construction project that
will begin this year, in Sidhpur, Dharamsala, Northern India situated
in the Himalayan foothills.
Our project, conditions and circumstances are unique. Traditional mud
buildings exist in this region of India, but our intention and goal is
to build creatively with long-term results withstanding time, seasonal
monsoons and probable seismic activity.
Our foundation, Thosamling Institute, will be a nunnery and retreat
center for western Tibetan Buddhist nuns and lay women. Our two-year
goal is to construct a temple, combination library/office/classrooms,
living quarters for 40 nuns and several individu
al retreat houses.
We hope to interest a highly creative and seasoned professional who is
intrigued and motivated to view this as an opportunity of a lifetime
offering challenge, adventure, beauty and good will. Also, being with
the Carpentry/Adobe Construction Department,
Northern New Mexico Community College, you may have referrals or
suggestions for visiting with a small group of advanced students, we
welcome your ideas as well.
Our organization can offer accommodations to include housing and
meals. If you wish to know more about us or ask any questions please
feel free to contact me via eMail, my name is Lobsang Drolma,
or you can look at our web site htt
We hope you will find some interest in our project and look forward to
any future communications.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
