The on-going College’s library cum Shrine hall is two storied building where monks will gather for rituals and prayers in the ground floor and use upper floor as a library. After much dedicated hard work, it will be completed within few months from now.
It is now when we have to be proud of after 53 years that how many scholars, practitioners and buddhists had this Monastery donated to the spiritual world.
Its the time we look back to the history of how the poineers had worked to make all this happen and how our monastery’s managers and supporters have work hard to maintain the outer inner and secret of monastery’s activity beautifully.
An hour long ceremony was ended with speech from Disciplinarian, Dephuk Trulku Jangchub Rigzin about importance of Discipline in Shedra and its purposes and vote of thanks speech by Lopon Sangye Dorji.
The event was kindly joined by Ven. Lama Tenchyab and many other senior monks.
His Holiness the 12th Mindrilling Trichen Dalha Rinpoche, the son of His Holiness the 11th Mindrolling Trichen and Yum Sonam-la (his mother), was born in Tibet in 1959 while His Holiness was in the Gesar retreat, so he was named Dalha Gyaltsen. When His Holiness had to flee Tibet due to the Chinese invasion, Yum Sonam-la and the young Dungsay Dalha Gyalsten were unfortunately not able flee with His Holiness.
While growing up in Tibet, Rinpoche studied under many qualified Teachers and his interests included Tibetan medicine. Years later, Rinpoche traveled to Mindrolling Monastery in India and received numerous teachings and transmissions from some of the most accomplished great masters of that time. These included His Holiness Mindrolling Trichen (His Father), His Holiness Dilgo Khyenste Rinpoche, His Holiness Penor Rinpoche, His Holiness Trulshig Rinpoche and Khenpo Jigme Phuntsok. Dungsay Rinpoche resides in Tibet where he returned after studying in India for many years.
