Located in Nepal, the natural eternal Flame of Muktinath- Chumming Gyatsa for Buddhists (Hundred Waters) – has been burning longer than two thousand years. It is one of the 24 tantric places!
The place is believed to be the abode of the Bodhisattva of Compassion and Virtue: Avalokitesvara.
I have no idea if the place still stands after the earthquakes. Perhaps you can tell me. xox, L.C
Valsnia, is a beautiful SL Avatar and an even prettier one in RL. Together with Ruby Ornamental, these two Second Life Residents with hearts of gold, came up with the initiative to Join Hands for Nepal in Second Life.
Their initiative has led to Join Hands for Nepal partnering with The World Food Program and all donations received during the event will be handed over to them.
Founded in 1961, The World Food Programme (WFP) is the food assistance branch of the United Nations and the world’s largest humanitarian organization addressing hunger and promoting food security.
With the magnitude of the Earthquakes in Nepal, the WFP immediately put together its Nepal Earthquake response cell and has been quickly moving to support the survivors.
WFP has three main goals under its Nepal earthquakes responses:
1) Deliver food to survivors and those who need it most,
2) Provide emergency operation assistance on a massive scale, and
3) Help the humanitarian aid community with relief hub services.
WFP is mobilising food stocks in the region, and is chartering a plane to fly in high-energy biscuits (HEBs) and other aid supplies to priority target areas. The Government intends to target areas within the Kathmandu Valley, while WFP is expected to concentrate efforts outside this area. Food trucks are on their way to affected districts outside the Kathmandu Valley, and food distribution has already started. Four assessment teams have been deployed to cover Gorkha, Lamjung, Sindhupalchowk, Rasuwa, Nuwakot, Dhading, Dolakha, Ramechhapp, Kavre, Bhakapur and Lalitpur.
WFP needs US $116.5 million to provide food for 1.4 million people for three months , which translates to US $ 27 for a person for the entire month until they are able to stabilize and organize their own means of sustenance.
Join Hands will support WFP in their mission and provide one of the most basic needs of human survival to those impacted by this massive calamity in Nepal.
