Raising Funds for Minling Khenchen Rinpoche
Ngagyur Nyingma College Reconstruction Project
Mindrolling College, known as Ngagyur Nyingma College, was originally built in 1988 with a main shrine and thirty-five (35) rooms to accommodate twenty-five (25) Buddhist monks. Since that time, many more monks have joined the college and new rooms were added. Today there are one hundred fifty-five (155) monks attending the college and there are not enough rooms to house them properly. The difficult environment and atmosphere this creates, as the monks concentrate on their studies and dharma practices, is no longer acceptable. In addition, sub-standard materials were used in the original construction and permanent construction is urgently needed at this time.
New construction is planned for the current Ngagyur Nyingma College of Mindrolling where demolition has already started due to the severe cracks in the walls and leaky ceilings. Expanding problems have added to the difficulty of living and studying for the monk students over the past few years. Former repairs have not been effective and following several discussions and meetings it was decided to demolish and reconstruct the entire college. Due to the increased number of monk students, the expanded plans accommodate a total of 87 rooms, a larger temple for the college, kitchen, dining area, restrooms, etc. which should take 2-3 years to complete.
We understand that these are difficult times and therefore H.E. Khenchen Rinpoche would especially like to thank you for your kindness as you consider your level of support. Your contribution will be used solely for the new expansion project.
Your support of the Reconstruction Project at any level is greatly appreciated.
