Bridging East and West with Dorjee Tsering, and helping others with compassion

Dharamshala: Dorjee Tsering is a man who believes that caring for the elderly and the infirm is a mission to be exacted with kindness and compassion. The Tibetan expression Nying-Jay Yul (the name of the NGO he helped to start) means roughly, it's always difficult to literally translate a word from one language into another without loosing some of its essence, giving kindness and care to others. This, Dorjee Tsering does.
