(please click above link for more information)

Wogmin Thubten Shedrup Ling

The monastery of Wogmin Thubten Shedrup Ling was founded in Tibet by the great Drikung Kagyu tertön and tantric master Nuden Dorje. In 1971, after returning to India from Ladakh, Ontul Rinpoche purchased a parcel of land on the sacred lake Tso Pema to found a new
Wogmin Thubten Shedrup Ling monastery in exile.  This is the center of Ontul Rinpoche's activities.  The monastery has some 50+ monks, ranging from 5 to 75 in age, with many of them being orphans and poor refugees struggling for support.

Drikung Pe-Tsak Nang-Cho Lo-Ling

The Drikung Lotus Mount Academy (named by H. H. Chetsang Rinpoché) is a personal project of Ontul Rinpoche aimed at teaching the Dharma to young monks.  The project includes a hostel for up to 150 monks with six classrooms for teaching English, Tibetan and Hindi, as well as instruction in tantric sacred arts and meditation.

Lhundrup Ling Institute

This is a special Dharma language institute, providing two-month intensive courses in modern standard Tibetan, classical Tibetan (the language of the Dharma), and Tibetan Buddhist philosophy specific to the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism.  The goal is to train a new generation of Tibetan translators.

Mandarava Retreat Center (MRC)

Ontul Rinpoche has recently acquired land on Tso Pema for long-term retreats.  This retreat center would provide an opportunity for extensive retreat in a place of great blessings: Tso Pema.
