Arya Tara Award
Her Majesty The Queen Mother Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuck was conferred the Blessed Arya Tara Award by Venerable Mae Chee Sansanee Sthirasuta, a spiritual leader of Thailand and Director and Founder of the Sathira Dhammasathan Centre. Her Majesty was deeply touched by this Bodhisattva Award and humbly accepted it on behalf of Tarayana for the transformational work that the organisation continues to do in helping the vulnerable help themselves.
Venerable Mae Chee Sansanee Sthirasuta’s journey from her days as a top ten model to daily helping others and living a life of peace and beauty that comes from the heart, is a fascinating one. She teaches communities to care, share and respect each other. Her ability to help break the cycle of violence by healing the hearts and minds of abused women, children and even the most hardened criminals continue to be a source of inspiration globally.
