SAMTENLING MONASTERY

20160617_150124Samtenling Monastery was established in 1980 and has been continuing for twenty-seven years to the needy and poor young monks of remote area of Tibet and Nepal.

There are roughly a hundred monks at the Monastery. Students first learn the basic things of Tibetan, English, and Nepali languages at Samtenling Monastery School known as Mahayana Buddhist Progressive Education Center (MBPEC). Some of the monks will later go on to other Institutions for further studies within the Tibetan community, such as the monasteries of Drepung, Sera, Gaden in South India, Central institute of Higher Tibetan Studies, and the Institute of Buddhist Dialectics School, Dharmsala.

We are in a position to offer this education solely due to the kindness of you, our benefactors. Without your kind help, it would be impossible.
