Zabsang Choekhor Ling Monastery 印度 2014

Inauguration of Zabsang Choekhor Ling Monastery

Grand Opening of the 1 and ONLY Nyingmapa Nyidrak Lineage monastery outside of Tibet. 

Zabsang Choekhor Ling Monastery was founded by The Third Shartul Rinpoche and

officially inaugurated by His Holiness The Fourteen Dalai Lama on 28 April 2014. 

The inauguration was grand and ran smoothly. We are truly blessed to be able to be part of this.

We spent about 10 days at the monastery and had a lot of fun with the young lamas.
