Today there are about 250 nuns who call Jangchub Choeling their home. The nuns range from the age of 9 years to 76 years. Most of the nuns are from Tibet and also from different parts of India, there are nuns from foreign countries like, Bhutan, Nepal, South Korea and Taiwan.
Jangchub Choeling is an educational institution for women who vigorously pursue the study of Buddhist scriptures in the Nalanda tradition, culminating in the Geshema Degree (Doctoral Degree). We have ten Teachers from Gaden and Drepung Monastery, including the Abbot, philosophy, grammar and poetry teachers. One of the teacher teaches science to the students. Five of our nuns teach philosophy and English to the young nuns.
Philosophy is one of the main subjects; the nuns also study Pramana (logic), Prajnaparamita (Perfection of Wisdom), Madhyamika (Middle Way), Abhidhama (Treasure of Knowledge) and Vinaya (Monastic discipline). The nuns receive a certificate upon completion of each of the main texts.
