Surmang Shedra

Capping a decade-long effort, despite delays, plans are still underway to complete and launch the shedra—monastic college—at Surmang Dutsi Til monastery in eastern Tibet. The Surmang Shedra is a magnificent 25,000 square foot facility that promises educational opportunities for monks and nuns in the Surmang valley.

Surmang Nunnery

A new Surmang Nunnery is being constructed near Tsokyendo village. There is also an existing nunnery—managed by the nephew of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche—which we support with a modest annual contribution. Last year we raised significant funds to expand its facilities.
