Prof. Krusche Helps Restore Antic Frescos & Paintings in Tibetan Monasteries

Author: Ashley Johnston



A message from Professor Krupali Krusche:
Greetings from Nepal! Over the last one month I have been traveling a very tough and dangerous terrain to reach some of the highly isolated Himalayan Mountains. Here lie some of the oldest Tibetan monasteries with antic frescos and paintings. I was with a team of Tulku Rimpoche (similar to Bishop status in catholic tradition), American health workers and monks whom I trained to work on these restorations and am presently creating an Eco friendly plan to help the isolated local community that goes through a lot of hardship to survive. With no hospital facilities, no warm water, no electricity and sanitation issues, such a plan would be of tremendous help to them.
I've sent along an image of the physical hike to upper mustang and our work being done there!
Go Irish!
